Flower girls & little maids | Lindy Bop

How’s your wedding checklist fairing? Wedding season is upon us, and while you might have ticked off all the biggest concerns of the bridal party such as the venue, bouquets and the all-important gown, we’re here to help you with a task full of innocence and magic, picking and dressing your flower girls of course!

Choosing whether to include flower girls and little maids in your wedding party can be a difficult choice to make. Danielle from ‘The Wedding Crecherz’ agrees, saying “having children at weddings can sometimes be a tricky decision, and there is a debate whether weddings are a good place for them to be. For some people it’s a brilliant idea, they want the children to be part of the family, they want them to make memories, and most importantly they want them in the photos in their gorgeous dresses and suits.” If you are considering including children in your day ‘The Wedding Crecherz’ offer beautiful bespoke creches across Dorset, Hampshire and the rest of the UK.

We think it’s a wonderful idea to include flower girls and little maids in your day and we are here on hand to help with the new kids on the block, the ‘Mini Lindy’ collection. Besides school discos and birthday parties, there are few events in any young girls’ lives in which they can dress up in a gorgeous gown for a beautiful occasion. Make her princess dress up dreams come true by asking her to be your flower girl on your special day!

Match maid in heaven

Typically younger girls between the ages of 3 to 8 are flower girls and the women in your life such as your besties, sisters and family members are your bridesmaids, but how do you include the excited pre-teens into your ceremony? No need to stress about finding matching outfits; with dresses available up to 12yrs of age and prices starting from £22 you can incorporate junior bridesmaids into your ceremony with our beautiful range of cute girls dresses quicker than you can say “it’s a match maid in heaven.”

The dress of the flower girl typically reflects the dress of either (or both) of the bride or bridesmaid(s). We’ve designed a range of girls’ dresses that sit at the knee to midi length ensuring that your flower girl won’t be tripping over any hems when leading the all-important walk up the aisle. The practical, cool and comfortable styles are ideal for young kids who fidget, like to run around and don’t want restrictive clothing.

Are you worried about the wrinkle factor? By picking fabrics that don’t crease easily you can keep your mind at ease in the knowledge that the little girl’s outfits will stay perfect all day, and your bridal party will be sitting pretty.

Children grow up so quickly, and growth spurts are inevitable. Our top tip is to purchase your flower girl dresses as close to the wedding date as possible, approximately 4 weeks beforehand.
