Flower girls are a special part of any wedding, and their outfits and accessories can add an extra touch of sweetness and charm to the ceremony. If you’re looking for flower girl style ideas, here are some suggestions for flower girl baskets, dresses, and flower petal alternatives.

Flower Girl Basket Ideas Flower girl baskets are a traditional accessory for the little ones walking down the aisle. While a classic white basket with flowers is always a lovely option, there are also many creative and unique basket ideas to consider. Here are a few ideas:

Rustic basket

A simple woven basket with a ribbon bow and greenery or dried flowers can create a charming and rustic look.

Personalized basket

Consider customizing the basket with the flower girl’s name or initials or adding a special touch like a locket or charm.

Wicker purse

A wicker purse can be a fun and playful alternative to a traditional basket and can be decorated with ribbons, flowers, or even pom-poms.

Flower Girl Dresses

Choosing the perfect flower girl dress can be a fun and exciting part of wedding planning. There are many styles and designs to choose from, ranging from classic and traditional to modern and trendy. Here are some flower girl dress ideas to consider:

  • Lace dress: A lace dress can add a touch of elegance and romance to the flower girl’s outfit and is a classic option for a traditional wedding.
  • Tutu dress: A tutu dress is a playful and whimsical option that can be customized with different colors and styles to match the wedding theme.
  • Boho dress: A flowy and bohemian-inspired dress with floral or nature-inspired details can create a lovely and relaxed look for a beach or outdoor wedding.

Flower Petal Alternatives for Your Flower Girl While throwing flower petals down the aisle is a traditional flower girl activity, there are also other creative and unique options to consider. Here are some flower petal alternatives for your flower girl:
