When choosing the dresses for your flower girl you don’t have to think about age, color, length, style, theme, etc. but also you have to know what style and type to choose. There are some different types of dresses, so this article will outline all these types, so you can make an informed decision when choosing the dresses.

Bodice and Skirt Flower Girl Dress. The dress has two parts: the bodice and the skirt. The bodice is the part of the dress that starts from the neckline to the waistline. The skirt is the bottom portion of the dress. This type of dress comes in different styles for each of the sections, so you can combine them to get the perfect dress.

Princess Flower Girl Dresses. We all know that little girls always dream about being princesses, or about looking like the bride at a wedding. That’s way some flower girl dresses were designed to look like princess dresses. These often have a full skirt with lots of frills, lace, beads, flowers, or ribbons. Some princess styles to look for include dresses with a satin bodice and a double-layered full tulle skirt.

Pleated Skirts Flower Girl Dress. Although it might seem a little out of the ordinary, skirts with pleats can be very pretty, especially if they are long and box-pleated. Pleated skirts are not as full as the princess-type skirts, but can still be very decorative. Pleated flower girl dresses are classical in style and offer a simple, yet elegant touch to any wedding.

Gathered, Pulled, Puffed, and Scattered Flower Girl Dress! Although it sounds a little messy, this type of flower girl dress has a very beautiful design. With this type of dress, the skirt’s upper layer of cloth, satin, or lace is gathered at the hemline and/or at certain points throughout, and then pulled and puffed at these points. If you add a scattered flower or roses at the gathered point, you flower girls will have a dashing look.

Pick-Up Skirt Flower Girl. The pick-up design is often used on a full or a-line skirt. Pieces of fabric are gathered at the hemline, allowing other parts to drape in a curve around the hemline of the skirt.

A-Line, Asymmetric, or Column Skirt Flower Girl Dress. The a-line skirt hugs the waist and flows outward toward the hemline without the appearance of a full skirt. Asymmetric skirts are similar to the a-line, but with an unusual pattern line that runs the full length of the dress. A column skirt or column dress is a straight dress with a bias-type cut and vertical seams, which gives the long, slender look.

Bodices and Sleeves Flower Girl Dress. Bodices come in different fabric; they may be made of satin or decorated with lace, flowers, or pearls. There are varying styles of necklines such as halter, sweetheart, v-neckline, scoop, or boat neckline. The sweetheart neckline is shaped similar to a heart. The v-neckline comes to a perfect V shape from the shoulders to the middle of the upper chest. The scoop neckline offers a slight curve around the neck. The boat neckline curves in a wide range from shoulder to shoulder. Flower girl dresses may be sleeveless or feature halter straps, thin spaghetti (or wider) straps, short or long sleeves, or puff sleeves.
