Flower Girl Dress Trends for 2014

The phrase “the more things change, the more they stay the same” definitely applies to the topic of Hot Flower Girl Dress Trends for 2014. For just as some of today’s flower girls are wearing new and exciting styles, others come bedecked in the beautiful, classic gowns that come steeped in tradition.

It may come as a surprise that, in some cases, modern flower girl apparel is not very flowery at all. Some of today’s youngest wedding attendants don’t even wear dresses, but opt instead for eye-catching pant suits in various colors and styles. These suits might include blazers, jackets, vests, and/or button up shirts that accompany leggings or comfortable slacks. These outfits are sharp and ultra-modern; also very comfy, which younger children are likely to appreciate. And they still can be highly feminine, especially if they come in beautiful shades of ivory, pink, gold or lavender; or if they come complete with jeweled accessories, fresh floral headpieces, and—of course—an assortment of lovely petals that the girl will scatter at various points down the aisle.

In other, more traditional ceremonies, the flower girl of 2014 might resemble a miniature version of the bride. She might wear a tiered pearl white dress of lace, silk or taffeta, along with a sash in red or pink. She might wear her own veil or a floral headpiece, along with jewelry and the prerequisite floral bouquet.

If, on the other hand, the bride chooses to reign as the ivory goddess of the day, she might choose to adorn her flower girl in taffeta and pastels; allowing her to glow in her own special way as she reflects the colors of the rainbow. Her flowers just might serve to reflect these classic, ethereal hues, as might the crown of florals that adorns her tiny head.

Ring Bearer Fashion

Going Vintage

A vintage style can be a great way for a ring bearer to be dressed for a wedding. This look goes particularly well with outdoor weddings but can look great with indoor ceremonies as well. One key component with this look is the choice of a bow tie and a newsboy styled hat. These are available through a variety of retailers and look great with a button front shirt, long shorts or pants and vintage styled tennis shoes. It is a comfortable look full of pieces that the parents will use again.

Top of the Line Fashion Sense

For the bride and groom who are trendsetters and always dressed in the latest styles it would only make sense that their ring bearer be as fashionable during the ceremony. There are several key pieces to creating this look. One is that a bow tie is going to be used again. In addition suspenders are a great way to give a young child some stylish flair. Dress pants, a button front shirt, a patterned pocket square, and oxfords completely take this child from the playground to the pew.

A Gentleman Approach

Styling a little guy to look like a gentleman is another trend that is popular especially in the southern US states. This look takes pieces that are created for spring and summer and puts them together in a way that will give the ringer bearer a style and personality while making him look fit for the country club. This ensemble requires a blazer, pants, shirt, bow tie, and flip flops to update it from traditional and boring to tradition with a flair.

The Eclectic Touch

With barn weddings being so popular it is important to have an idea of how to style a little one who is going to be the ring bearer on the farm as well. With this setting a nice pair of dark washed jeans, cute tennis shoes, a bow tie in a fresh pattern, suspenders, a newsboy cap, and a button up shirt will work perfectly to keep the child happy and able to play when the ceremony is over.

Ready to Walk in the Sand

Beach weddings are another popular trend where a ring bearer should be dressed appropriately for the weather but still look good enough to be a part of the wedding party. For this type of wedding a blazer and pair of shorts can be perfect with a fancy boutonniere, and a pair of boat shoes. Not only is this look perfect for warmer weather but it also still will look appropriate with any style of wedding party.

Too Cool for School

The trendiest boys will find many of these outfits to not be what they’d choose for themselves. Regardless of your wedding’s style a child can still reflect who he is and look great too. Choosing pieces like a dress vest, long sleeve button up shirt, fun patterned tennis shoes, and pants can help them to look cool while still being dressed up enough to represent in your wedding.
