French Ballet Inspired Flower Girl Dresses

Tuesday 9th August 2016
Influenced by the origins of French ballet and the spectacles of early fifteenth century theatre productions, opulent embroidered silk tunics and layers of feathery fringe are beginning to enrich every little girl’s dream to be a prima ballerina. Long, floating and ethereal, we’ve compiled an edit of our favourite flower girl dresses. Whether you choose a sequin adorned bodice or a soft tulle skirt, you'll be asking if these miniature gowns come in grown-up sizes and some of them do!

The wardrobe of a little lady imitates the romantic ballets, where tales of mysticism and fantasy were told through dance. Where flowers, flounces and ribbon are intertwined and interlaced into delicate silk tulles and whimsical white sheaths of material. Reflecting their pure, ­­­­­wide-eyed innocence and sense of spirit, each hand crafted tutu dress expresses a lovely delicacy, constructed from tufts of dusty pastel organza, tulle and cotton.

There’s no doubt that your little flower girls will be the cutest members of your bridal party. However, practicality should be at the top of your list whenever it comes to choosing a flower girl dress. Opt for mid length flower girl dresses or turn the hem up on slightly longer gowns, neither you or your little one want any trips down the aisle. For consistency, consider donning your flower girl in a similar dress to your bridesmaid’s or incorporating accents of the same colour.

An alternative to petals . . .

Being a flower girl is no easy feat. Walking down an aisle full of strangers would be intimidating for anyone, let alone having to scatter petals and keep a smile on your face. A simple solution is a bespoke floral crown. Wisps of delicate baby’s breath or full, fluffy carnations interlaced around twines are a great alternative to loose petals and your little ballerina only needs to worry about holding her head up high.
