Kids Wedding Clothing: How Much to Spend?

When you begin planning a wedding, one of the first issues that must be addressed is the budget. At least this is the case for most people. Everything involved in your wedding cost money whether it’s the invitations, decorations, flower basket, ring pillow, entertainment, etc. You even have to consider how much the kids’ wedding clothing will cost for the little ones in your wedding. Below are a few tips for determining how much to spend on kids wedding clothing for your wedding.

  • Your Budget – As mentioned above, your budget is the first thing you have to determine when you begin planning a wedding. The good news about kids wedding clothing is that you can spend as little or as much as you want on it. There are affordable options in children’s formalwear for all budgets. So, when you are thinking about the appropriate amount to budget in for kids formalwear, come up with an amount that you are comfortable with. It should be less than what you’re planning to spend on the bridal party attire, pictures and decorations.
  • Type of Wedding – You also need to take the style of wedding into consideration. For example, if you’re having a beachside wedding in Hawaii, you may not want your flower girls and ring bearers in highly formal attire. Instead, you may opt for summer dresses for the flower girls and dress shirts and shorts for the ring bearers. This will affect your budget.

  • Where You Shop – If you make the decision to order kids wedding clothing from online retailers, such as KidsFormal.com, you will save a substantial amount of money in comparison to wedding boutiques and bridal shops. By making this decision early in the planning stage, you will be able to adjust your budget accordingly.

Tips for Flower Girl Dress Shopping

If you are the parent of a flower girl for an upcoming wedding, then there are a few things you should keep in mind as you prepare to go shopping for the flower girl dress. While this should be a fun experience, it can be a crazy and stressful one if you aren’t prepared. The tips below will help make shopping for a flower girl dress a fun and memorable time for you and your little girl!

  • Work with the Bride. The first thing you need to remember is that while your little girl will be wearing the flower girl dress, this isn’t your wedding. More than likely, the bride-to-be has a picture in her mind of the style of dress she wants her flower girl to wear. Therefore, it’s important that you work with the bride to find a flower girl dress that fulfills her wedding day wishes, as well as, meets your satisfaction.
  • Talk about the Budget. While the bride-to-be most likely has an idea of the type of flower girl dress she’s looking for, you are the one who will be paying for it. Therefore, you need to sit down and determine what your budget is for the flower girl dress. Now, when you make your budget be sure you include enough money to cover the dress, shoes, hair pieces, panty hose and/or any other accessories that will be needed to complete the ensemble. Once you’ve got the budget determined, share it with the bride-to-be so she knows how much you can afford to spend.
  • Bring Accessories Along. Once you’ve got an appointment with the bride-to-be at a children’s formalwear shop (or bridal boutique), then gather any accessories you have that you know your little one will be wearing with the flower girl dress. For instance, if you already have a great pair of dress shoes that you would like her to wear with her flower girl dress, bring them along so she can wear them while trying on dresses. This is also true with any jewelry or hairpieces you have that you would like to see her wear.

Royal Wedding Flower Girl Dresses

Dear Valued Customer,

I’m sure by now you’ve seen pictures on the internet of the Royal Wedding between Catherine Middleton and Prince William which took place on April 29, 2011. Therefore, I’m sure you also noticed how gorgeous Catherine’s wedding dress was. It was a very simple dress featuring beautiful lace detail and a flowing train, giving it the look of elegance many brides try to achieve.

While Catherine was the center of attention, there were four other people in the Royal Wedding who also deserve some attention. Of course, I’m referring to the four young flower girls. Catherine did a perfect job picking out the style of dresses for these little ones, which is something you brides-to-be can learn from. Below are a few suggestions to help you find the perfect flower girl dresses for your upcoming wedding.

  • Use Matching Material – The first comparison you should make when looking at the four little darlings in the Royal Wedding, is that their dresses are all made with the same material as Catherine’s wedding gown. This is very important if you want your flower girls’ dresses to compliment your wedding dress.

  • Order the Same Color – The second thing you should notice is that the flower girls in the Royal Wedding were wearing dresses that were the same shade of ivory as the bride’s. If you truly want to pick out flower girl dresses that compliment yours, then you need to make sure they are the same color as your wedding gown. If you want some color on your flower girls, look for dresses that have a colored sash around the waist or some colored embroidery. Just make sure the primary color of the dress matches your own.

  • Find a Complimentary Style – Finally, take a second look at Catherine’s wedding dress. Yes, it’s beautiful…but it’s a somewhat simple gown with elegant details. Now, look at her flower girl dresses – they are also simple, but they have a few elegant details of their own. For instance, the sleeves were puffed, the waist was accented with a sash that formed a beautiful bow in back and the hemline of the dress had a gorgeous layered look. While those details seem to be small, it’s those details that made the dresses compliment Catherine’s as well as they did.
