Avoid extreme designs and severe color or pattern contrasts. You don’t want the dress to clash so much in style, color or design that it distracts everyone from your dress or the decor.
The “mini bride” look is adorable and allows your flower girl to feel like she’s you. Yet, an exact replica can cause a safety or comfort problem, and takes eyes off the grandeur of your dress. Pick different hair accessories or a custom dress that features elements from your own, such as similar colors or embroidered patterns.
If you want your her stand out, don’t give up on traditional designs. You can accent a traditional dress with an accessory -- glossy ribbon belt, colorful flower hair clip or sparkling tiara -- that makes the dress stand out in a positive way.
