Among the youngest of the wedding party members, a flower girl is typically 3 to 8 years old, according to The Knot.[1] Just like with bridesmaid dresses, the bride usually picks out a style of flower girl dress to complement her own gown and wedding colors. Traditionally, the flower girl's parent is expected to pay for the dress, shoes and accessories unless the bride offers to buy any items as a gift.

Typical costs:

  • Inexpensive flower girl dresses typically range from $30 to $60. At David's Bridal[2] , basic flower girl dresses start at $59.
  • Moderate dresses range from $75 to $150. Flower girl dresses at Nordstrom fall into this price category.
  • Expensive flower girl dresses cost $200 or more. Joanna Grace[3] specializes in designer gowns for young girls, many in the $600-plus range. Brides.com highlights some popular flower girl dress styles in the moderate and expensive price range with a slideshow.
  • Generally, the more beading or embroidery on a dress, the more it costs. Materials like lace or organza also drive up the price, and dresses by coveted designers tend to be priced higher.

What should be included:
  • Dress boutiques should include a complementary fitting where the flower girl is measured according to the designer's size chart.
Additional costs:
  • House of Brides[4] has selections in the $30 to $40 range.
  • If required, alterations may cost $30 to $100 extra -- see How Much Do Wedding Dress Alterations Cost. These alterations will be simpler than a wedding or bridesmaid dress, but more complex materials may drive up the price.
  • The Knot [5] lists other flower girl extras including jewelry, hair accessories, stockings and white underwear. Expect to pay at least $20 to take care of these additional expenses.
  • Shipping for flower girl dresses ordered online is usually $7 to $10, unless an order is expensive enough to qualify for free shipping.
Discounts:
  • Online discount retailers likeFlower Girl Princess[6] , Sophia's Style[7] and Flower Girl Dresses[8] carry outfits ranging from $30 to $60.
Shopping for a flower girl dress:
  • Bridal gowns are typically made of materials like satin, lace or organza. When shopping for a wedding gown, ask if there is a complementary style of flower girl dress so you can match materials.
  • Flower girl dresses are often white, styled like a miniature bridal gown, with colored accents that can be ordered to match the bridesmaids' dresses. Consider your wedding colors and decide if you'd like the dress to have a colored bow or sash at the waist. If the wedding party includes a junior bridesmaid, consider the color and material of her dress.
  • The Wedding Channel[9] lists shopping tips for the flower girl's parents.

Free shipping and free returns. Who can beat that? I didn't like the first style from pinkprincess.com. The second flower girl dress was much better.
