If you’re planning a wedding, you may be tempted to just buy a cute white dress for your flower girl, and have her carry a bouquet that matches yours. After all, she's just a kid, right? And if she looks adorable, the guests will be pleasantly pleased.
Well, there's a bit more to it than that. Let's first take a quick look at the flower girl tradition. There are various designs of Flower Girls Gowns in Melbourne.
Starting with the Middle Ages, flower girls were assigned a special job; to walk down the wedding aisle ahead of the bride and groom and spread grain (not flowers) in order to pave the way for a new beginning, fertility, and happiness in the marriage.
Today's flowers girls usually carry rose petals, and while they aren't believed to have special powers that will grant the new couple a harmonious relationship, they do tend to set the tone for a wedding.
Think about the last wedding you attended. If the flower girls came out in formal dark colored dresses, you quickly understood that the wedding would have a formal tone. On the other hand, if they came out in wispy flower girl dresses with roses laced into their hair, you knew that you would experience a more whimsical wedding.
In other words, the flower girls are generally the first part of the wedding party to walk down the aisle, and because of that, they will make a strong first impression on your guests.
