Traditionally, a flower girl follows the last bridesmaid (or the maid of honour) in the wedding procession, just moments before the bride makes the big entrance. A flower girl will gracefully scatter flower petals or confetti as she walks down the aisle before standing with the rest of the bridal party during the ceremony. The role of flower girl is most commonly reserved for the youngest girls of the family, typically aged between 3 – 9 years old, when they are just a little too young to be a bridesmaid. Most flower girls adore having such an important role to play and they love every second of being part of something so special… and quite frankly, we can’t think of anything cuter than flower girls accompanying you down the aisle on your wedding day. Other than perhaps, their outfits!
When it comes to flower girl outfits, they usually wear a white dress that features a similar style to the bride’s dress. If, as the bride, you have opted for a lace bridal gown, you may want your flower girl to have a dainty dress that has been designed with lots of lovely lace detailing. If you’ve opted for a sequin wedding dress, you may want sparkles to feature throughout your flower girl’s attire – especially if you’re having a magical winter wedding!
There are a huge array of flower girl dresses and outfits to choose from, with brides asking their flower girls to wear gorgeous tutus, flower crowns, pretty occasion cardigans and sequin-embellished shoes. As flower girls are usually younger, we wholeheartedly recommend that you choose a pair of comfortable shoes, such as ballet flats, so that your leading ladies still enjoy every second of being by your side on your special day.
Here at Rainbow Club, we have a thoughtfully curated collection of shoes for your flower girls, offering the perfect mixture of fun, practicality and prettiness – not to mention matching styles to your wedding heels. We totally understand how important it is that your team of mini maids feel comfortable for the duration of your celebration, which is why each and every single one of our flower girl shoes has been crafted with our unique Bliss Cushion Comfort, featuring a luxurious padded lining and super-soft underfoot comfort. The combination means that your flower girls’ feet will feel heavenly all day long.
Tips for Choosing Flower Girl Shoes
|As with the bridal look, we recommend choosing the dress first, so that you can make sure the shoes effortlessly complement the look – not the other way around!
|Your mini maid’s shoes should complement her dress – they don’t necessarily have to match! For instance, your wedding colour scheme may be ‘dusty rose’. So, you could opt for a pretty white dress, a dusty rose coloured cardigan and a pair of Rainbow Club shoes that have been dyed in the same colour. Alternatively, a white dress and an ivory pair of flower girl shoes will always look enchanting.
|Your choice of flower girl shoes should align with the formality of your wedding day. If you have a black-tie dress code, you may want to choose a smarter pair of flower girl shoes, rather than something that is more relaxed and understated.
|If you have a slightly older flower girl, she may adore the thought of wearing flower girl shoes with a subtle heel. She’ll feel super special walking down the aisle in a pair of low heels – so grown-up!
|You must ensure that your chosen shoes fit your flower girl perfectly, In fact, you may need to double-check, if not triple check with her! There’s nothing worse than shoes that or too tight or too loose, and chances are, they’ll quickly get on the child’s nerves and cause potential upset if they don’t fit properly. It might be worth giving your mini maid her shoes ahead of the big day so she can wear them in a little bit around the house. This way, her parents will be able to make sure the flower girl is as happy as can be!
|We think it would be a lovely idea to get your flower girl involved in the shoe shopping process! They’ll adore being a part of your wedding day and helping to choose their outfit. Plus, if your flower girl has been involved in choosing her outfit, she’ll be super excited to wear it and will be more than happy to make her way down the aisle. No tantrums here!
|Opt for accessories that work hand in hand with the shoes – if the shoes feature something sparkly, opt for an embellished headband or hair clip to complete the look.
