Next to bridal gowns, flower girl dresses are a showstopper at any wedding. Most of the enchantment can be attributed to their charming wearers. Yet flower girl dress styles and colors make an attractive statement on their own. For spring and summer weddings, rustles of soft fabrics and pretty pastels whisper in a gentle breeze.
Cool, pale colors such as light pink, mint green, and lovely lilac have always been popular for spring and summer. When it comes to weddings, it is easy to explain the never-ending popularity of these soft hues. Gorgeous pastels can play a leading role in any love story. Indeed, pretty pastels can help create the ‘perfect’ wedding.
Despite the romance surrounding soft shades, their presence at weddings grew from a practical reason. Since dark colors absorb more heat, pastel shades were more comfortable for summer wedding fashions. In addition, the quiet colors lend themselves to light fabrics such as chiffon or organza. For this year’s spring/summer weddings, terrific tulle is expected to be the most popular fabric for flower girl dresses.
A comfortable dress is essential for a contented flower girl. Yet at first sight of their flower girl outfit, little girls won’t be captivated by the practical details but rather more by the princess-like quality. Pretty pastels add to the whimsy, fun, and magic of the flower girl experience.
Wearing a lilac mirror organza and two layers of tulle overlaying crystal satin, every little girl will see a princess in the mirror. A pink embroidered taffeta tulle is perfect for the belle of the ball. A pretty peach matte satin bodice can top off a tea-length skirt with satin butterfly accents.
Little princesses love glitter and pastels shine a little brighter with a hint of sparkle. A soft blue organza with rhinestones lends a luxurious touch. Silver and gold accents look amazing against a pale background. Add a bit of dazzle with flower girl jewelry. Select age-appropriate pieces and stay with a single chain or necklace.
Set against a pastel fabric, lovely embellishments – sparkling sequins, exquisite beading, pearl buttons – take on an extra elegance. Combine pearls and flowers in blue rosebud pearl
. A pink matte satin A-line, with a floral-and-vine design, looks adorable with accents of sequins, beads, and flowers.
Pastels are naturals for fabulous floral patterns. Whether on formal gowns or cotton dresses, floral accents, flowery prints, and delicate appliques are always popular for spring/summer weddings. During summer 2010, tiny flower patterns will make tremendous headway in women and girls’ wedding fashions.
An increased emphasis on nature is noticeable in this year’s latest styles. Soft shades of graceful green – mint green, pale green, even lime green as an accent color – add natural beauty to any bridal party. A mint green/lilac embroidered polka-dot taffeta provides just the right touch of green in a fun style. Pastel greens are perfect for garden weddings.
Indeed, the best characteristic of pastels is their versatility. Pretty pastels add beauty to any wedding celebration anywhere – formal, informal, or even a very casual beach wedding. Luxurious pinks, gentle greens, or soothing blues can work their magic in any setting.
Probably the strongest proof of the power of pastels for flower girl dresses is found in the latest wedding trend. Modern brides, having observed the charming allure of their pastel-clad flower girls, are now following their lead. Just in time for spring/summer 2010, there are an increasing number of pastel wedding dresses on the market. It looks like the rest of the bridal party doesn’t want to miss out on the pretty pastels and that perfect wedding.
