Gift Guide: Your Flower Girl

Flower Girl Gift Ideas

We’re continuing on with our Christmas shopping, and today it’s the flower girls who are getting all the attention. I personally just adore shopping for kids, especially girls because I remember what I loved when I was that age, and I’ve had so much fun coming up with this list of 20 shamelessly girly-girl gifts for the little lady in your life. They’re perfect as stocking stuffers or Christmas pressies for nieces too, or as gifts for your mini entourage on the big day, whatever the season! Whenever you choose, and whichever gift catches your eye, each one is sure to make her feel like a princess :) Links in bold denote affiliate links. SBB may receive a commission for any sales made.

Monsoon Flowergirl Dress Inspiration

With the festive season comes party season and that means party dresses – and not just for adult ladies either. Little ladies also have a chance to get their glam frocks on, and that means there’s great pickin’s when it comes to dresses that would make for adorable flower girl gowns. I’m personally partial to flowergirls rocking tiny versions of dresses I wish I could wear myself, and Monsoon happens to be brilliant at them – this season there’s more tulle and sequin and floral applique going on than ever before and I love it. So I thought I would round up ten of my favourite party gowns and combine them with some of our favourite inspiration boards to show you how party can translate perfectly into wedding where these little dresses are concerned. The only part that sucks? Knowing I am way, waaaaay to old to fit into them.Read More

Flower Dresses for Flowergirls

Since we’re already head over heels for everything floral print this month, from cakes to wedding dresses to bridesmaid dresses, we certainly couldn’t leave out the little ladies that make up the short end of your bridal party – after all, they’re called flower girls! As it happens, there are so many gorgeous floral mini-bridesmaid dresses, many so gorgeous that I wish they made them in big-people sizes too. Even if you don’t incorporate any other floral or botanical elements in your wedding, I can’t think of a prettier way to dress the little ones for a spring or summer celebration. So let’s get inspired! As always, you can click on any of the product images to shop, and visit our brand new Flower Girl Boutique board on Pinterest for regular finds.

Let Them Eat Wedding Cake #5: The Flower Girls

I would like the type of wedding that my younger cousins enjoy. A celebration of our family and friends – where its littlest members know that they are adding something truly invaluable to our day. A family wedding. Beauty without pretence. A day with an air of excitement, a newness, a belief in magic.

Being from a large family I was lucky enough to be a flower girl three times growing up, and I was a flower girl in some of my first and fondest wedding memories. I remember getting dressed with the bride and her bridesmaids, with all the excitement in that room – the hair, the makeup, the flowers. I remember posing for photographs in a field, being made to feel special, being thanked by name in a speech. I recall my feet swinging – not yet being able to touch the lovely grassy floor underfoot, and I remember catching the bouquet. It was simply wonderful – being privy to all the excitement, and being a part of something so special.

Celebrity Inspiration: Kate Moss

It’s entirely possible that you’re bored of reading about Kate Moss’s wedding by now, since the whole of wedding world’s been posting about it all week. But, just like the Royal Wedding, it would be remiss of me not to write about it at all because, as much as I hate to admit it, this wedding was iconic. I’m not the hugest fan of the stylish Ms Moss (naked pictures with your young daughter as part of your wedding pics. Really?), but I’ve got to say, the girl knows how to throw a set of nuptials. I mean, it helps that everyone at her wedding was ridiculously photogenic. And of course, it didn’t hurt that Mario Testino took what are quite probably the most gorgeous wedding pictures EVER. But really, it was the seamless (and personal) fusion of sweet English countryside, Gatsby glam and good old fashioned rock ‘n roll that really made it special. Three things I never would have thought would go together so well, and they did. Bravo, Kate. *Tips imaginary hat*Read More
