Q) My 10 year old daughter doesn’t want to wear a poufy dress for her aunt’s wedding, but my sister (the bride) insists she match the other flower girls. How can I make them both happy?
A) Your daughter’s is at an age where poufy isn’t her thing and why force her? But I understand the bride’s wish to make everyone uniform. We can do your daughter’s dress in the same fabric and colors as the younger flower girls, but just in an A-line version, no tulle underneath. We can also change the bodice style, depending on her style. That should do the trick!
Q) I have a January Wedding and I’m concerned about the girls getting cold. Any suggestions?
A) If you don’y want to worry about covering up the dress with a sweater (and finding ones to match), we suggest adding sleeves. We do ruffled cap, short, three-quarter, and long sleeves. You can also do a wrap, which is great because if they get warmed up dancing, they can just throw it off!
Q) We have a wedding coming up that my daughter will be a flower girl in and also her first communion in May- is it possible to use the same dress for both?
A) Absolutely! Most brides choose white or ivory dresses with a color sash, so a great economical idea would be to order an extra sash in the white or ivory and have it switched for the communion. Our ivory is very light and most people like it for communions anyway. So in most cases (unless the bride wants a full color dress) the same dress can be worn with a minor adjustment that any local tailor do.
