Do Flower Girl Dresses Have to Match the Bride?
The short answer is no. Flower girl dresses don’t have to match the bride. Nor do they necessarily have to match the bridesmaids either. Most brides like to have a happy medium where the flower girls have a complementary, yet distinct, look of their own. Especially as wedding dresses become more revealing, it is ideal to let the flower girl maintain her sweet and innocent look while complementing the rest of the wedding party.
6 of the Classiest Spring & Summer Wedding Trends for Flower Girl Looks that Complement any Bridal Gown
1. That Lace is so Lovely!
Whether it’s in boho style or an elegant design, crochet lace is the soft, beautiful look for brides and flower girls alike. Brides who love this look can have flower girl dresses with the same lace theme. Lace uplifts dresses into gowns with a special feel. There are floral patterns and beaded crochet, some of which can be found in the unique embroidery patterns.
2. Flower girls are feelin’ good in Tulle
Tiered tulle skirts just make a girl feel great! The bubbly look is for the very joyful at heart. You can’t flip through a fashion magazine today without quickly spotting a layered tulle skirt, and there’s good reason-- they’re adorable. Flower girls are rockin’ this lovely look now with ruffles that elegantly give a dress the perfect volume. And so are brides! Which makes Tulle skirts an excellent theme for wedding party dresses.
3. Sashes & Bows for our babes
Whether they’re beaded and pearled belts, or silk fabric sashes and bows, waist accents add a tailored look to wedding and flower girl dresses. They help take in the waist and give a clean, streamlined look to a wedding day ensemble. Even if the bride doesn’t have a belt or sash, it’s common to see flower girl dresses have a very girly sash with a bow in the back. Belts and sashes can be adapted as a look for the entire wedding party or saved for the sweet flower girl, your pick.
With customizable sashes and bows it’s easy to get a tailored look for any wedding color theme. Flower girl dresses now come in adorable styles with white or ivory dresses and a sash with a bow that seamlessly matches the bridal party colors, adding a convenient and affordable luxury level of customization.

Call it the “Meghan Markle Effect,” but after last year’s Royal Wedding, the Duchess of Sussex’s minimalist wedding dress featuring a Bateau neckline is on a serious trend. Even on not so simple dresses, the elegant neckline comes with class and sophistication. NY fashion designer Sareh Nouri has featured a similar simple gown and trending Bateau neckline for her Spring 2020 line. We see this trend occur mostly with bridal gowns, but you can also find variations of it for flower girl dresses which can complement the fashion-forward look.
5. Capped sleeve sweetness
Capped sleeves cover the shoulder and give an elegant look to any dress. Modest and sweet, the capped sleeve makes flower girl dresses adorable and classic. This could be a theme for the entire wedding party, or you can save the more modest look for the flower girls to rock. Either way capped sleeves add a classy dimension to flower girl dress and wedding dresses alike.
6. Everyone loves the Flower Girl
The final trend is all about our lovely flower girls. A wedding celebration of love is extra special when our flower girls wear a heart-shaped back design dress. You will see this trend in many more weddings because the heart-shaped back adds an extra adorable, extra special touch of love to any spring or summer wedding. It can easily complement a bride’s dress since it is intentionally different, but also intentionally designed for celebrating love.
Here's a recap and size chart for these 6 wedding dress & flower girl trends that complement each other.
