So you just found out that your brother’s getting married. Congratulations! Isn’t that wonderful? Aren’t you excited? And your daughter’s going to be the flower girl? Wonderful!
You don’t have to stress over this recent development. Yeah, your daughter might only be five years old and known to pick her nose in front of your in-laws. Who cares? That’s what kids are famous for! You may have every reason to think that as she’s walking down the aisle with her cute little bouquet of flowers that she’ll inexplicably sit down and start bawling her eyes out. Or maybe she’ll erupt into total chaos and run amok. What better thing to happen at the wedding of that scoundrel who used to give you wet willies when you were kids? Don’t freak out about your cute little girl’s up-coming task. She’ll be able to handle it.
You have her dress picked out already, right? Well then that’s half the difficulty right there. Everything will be fine. Now all that’s left for you to do is to find your little flower girl a nice pair of shoes to wear to the wedding.
Shoes for flower girls come in all sorts of styles. Being that they’re made for young children, you’re not going to find any with high heels, but other than that you’ll find just as many different shoes for flower girls as you would expect to find for adult women. Choosing the style will, of course, depend on the season, what the bride wants, and what you can get your little girl to wear. You can pick between open toed shoes and closed toe shoes. There are ones which resemble cute little slippers for a fairy princess, and there are shoes with delicate straps and cute miniature buckles and lots of other tiny details. Maybe Mary Janes are the way to go. Those are readily available, too. If your flower girl is just a toddler then there are plenty of pretty formal shoes for them, as well.
Shoes for flower girls are almost always white. This is because it’s a popular color and it can be dyed to match any color scheme. Such shoes range in price from around $20 to $40, so you’re not going to empty your wallet for your sweet angel’s endeavor. Plain shoes are less expensive, whereas hand-trimmed shoes add to the cost. Many wedding stores will dye your shoes for free. The few that do charge for dying the shoes don’t charge that much.
Weddings are one of the most important events of our lives. You should be proud if your daughter has been chosen to be the flower girl in someone’s wedding. Don’t worry about her punching the ring bearer in the face. There’s nothing you can do about that. What you do have control over is the shoes she wears. Your local bridal shop will provide all the help you need for finding your little girl the right pair of shoes for her day as a flower girl.
