Your flower girls will look adorable no matter what they wear. While white or cream-colored dresses are the ultimate classic style for your littlest attendant, we’re loving the newest trend in flower girl attire: tiered skirts. These layered skirts were all over the wedding gown runways a few seasons back and have made their way to flower girl dresses. These stylesmove beautifully as the little ones walk down the aisle, and they’re available in many different fabrics – from organza to tulle to silk. Are you a fan of these flower girl dress styles? What are your little ladies wearing? Let us know in the comments!
Even though having a flower girl or ring bearer is optional, including one of your favorite little ones is always a nice way to make them feel a part of your special day.

Depending on your theme, here are seven alternative items your flower girl or ring bearer could carry (or walk) down the aisle with:

Talley Sue Hohlfeld, Etiquette Expert, has a great post on The Bride’s Guide today about flower girls. I have always loved the idea of having children involved with the wedding. They seem to add an air of innocence to the day. However, for many brides, the flower girls can also be a source of anxiety! Will she make it down the aisle? Will she drop the petals?
Well, a new book, One Little Flower Girl by Jennifer Dussling, could be the perfect gift (and instruction manual) for your flower girl!
The book even comes with practice flower petals!
Are you doing anything special for your flower girl?
