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.

Keep it Rustic: Rustic Ring Bearer Outfits

As a wedding is perhaps the most classic and traditional of ceremonies, it only stands to reason that each male who participates in this sacred, time-honored rite will be dressed in his most elegant finery; up to and including the spirited young ring bearer that plays such an important role in the ceremony. Indeed, he even might choose to wear a style of fashion that harkens back to yesteryear.

Rustic ring bearer outfits are, in a unique way, the wave of the future in terms of wedding wear—everything old is new again! And they stand as the ultimate symbol of sacred ceremonial tradition.

Rustic ring bearer outfits come in a variety of cloths and fabrics—all, however, tend to come complete with an unmistakable ‘old world’ look.

Whether made of sleek silk or more traditional cotton, muslin or tweed, rustic ring bearer outfits tend to come in classic shades such as grey, ivory, brown and ebony. They generally come complete with three pieces (a jacket, vest and trousers) as well as a variety of masculine accessories.

A gold, diamond or silver cravat or lapel pin, for instance, would not only make a stellar compliment to any rustic ring bearer suit. It would make an excellent gift for the ring bearer from the bride and groom. A pocket watch with a sharp chain would make another nice accessory, as would a ring for the ring bearer!

Of course, the shirt is perhaps the most valuable accessory for the rustic ring bearer outfit. A crisp ivory white shirt always works, as it coordinates with everything, and shirts in hues of gold, black, brown and cream also might work.

Then ‘tie up’ the entire ensemble with the help of a tie or cravat, and ‘top it off’ with a hat; which, depending on the fashion and décor scheme of the wedding, could take the form of a top hat, a fedora or a wide-brimmed chapeau.

The young gent will feel like a classic gentleman in a rustic ring bearer outfit!

Growing the Flower Girl

Flower Girl Dresses

Cute little girl in her flower girl dress

So you’ve selected the very lucky young lady who will serve as the flower girl in your much anticipated wedding ceremony. She is bound to be honored, excited…and, in all probability, scared out of her wits.

…well, perhaps that’s an understatement. The fact is, though, that this is a young child who faces the task of carrying off a substantial part of the wedding ceremony; and in the presence of dozens or perhaps hundreds of watching adults. She may be tense and bashful at this prospect, or even experiencing anxiety at what may seem—at least in a child’s eyes—to be a daunting role.

Here are a few ideas on how to grow the flower girl:

Reassure your flower girl that absolute perfection is not part of the job description. Tell her that you yourself might mess up during the ceremony; and that, in all likelihood, the gathered crowd will laugh along with you at any minor mess ups and proceed with the ceremony.

Remind your flower girl that the occasion of your wedding is a fun family event. Encourage her to enjoy herself and look forward to the big day.

Be sure to explain thoroughly to your flower girl the duties and responsibilities associated with her role in the wedding. Depending on her age and maturity level, you may have to repeat these instructions several times; just be sure that she understands exactly what will be expected of her throughout the course of the ceremony.

Practice, practice, practice. Everyone feels more comfortable about a job, task or duty if they are able to practice it ahead of time; and even before the wedding rehearsal, you might want to run the flower girl through the paces of her wedding day duties. Encourage her to behave, smile, have fun, and spread joy and happiness along with the flower petals!

The White Wedding.

Over the past weekend I attended my best friends wedding! The theme was all white no black. The was so wedding beautiful and elegant. I have never been to a white theme wedding so to see everyone dressed up in white made everything look angelic. Literally everything is white, from the flowers all the way down to the eating utensils.  This was the fairy tale wedding you read about as a child! My two best friends the bride and the groom were covered in complete white head to toe. The groom dressed in your traditional white tuxedo and the bride had a long magnificent long flowing dress. Though the bride and groom looked stunning, my favorite outfits were worn by the little ones. The ring bearer and the flower girl! Their outfits were so adorable. To see a ring bearer walk down in a tiny little white tuxedo with his fluffy bow tie and the flower girl rocking a similar dress to the bride had me dying. To say the least I had a wonderful time at my best friends wedding. I pray your marriage may have success, prosperity, and lots of love.

 

Love to Jay and Kim.
