It may not seem like it, but it’s perfectly possible to keep your wedding budget in check – even cheap flower girl dresses are possible!
Here are tips for finding cheap flower girl dresses online:
1. Amazon – You can generally find basic cheap flower girl dresses here, just by doing a basic search for “flower girl dress”. Many of the options will offer free shipping and some may offer free returns, too, if the dress arrives looking less than your dream version. Be sure to check reviews and look at customer photos to get an idea of what you can expect with quality of fabric and fit.
2. Ebay – Despite what you may guess about Ebay, this site is not just an online warehouse for used items. There are plenty of brand new flower girl dresses available here. You may even have some luck searching by designer, if you’re familiar with the designer of your wedding dress and want a matching or coordinating style.
3. Think casual – If your wedding style is more “backyard casual” than “city chic”, you’ll have a much easier time finding cheap flower girl dresses – and almost everything else wedding-related, to be honest! Going even slightly more casual allows for so much more wiggle room. You’ll likely be able to find a suitable flower girl dress right off the racks at Target, a department store or elsewhere.
4. Negotiate! – It absolutely doesn’t hurt to ask to see if you’re able to get a discount on dresses for the bridal party (including your flower girl) at the store where you’re purchasing your wedding dress. Fact is, you’re probably dropping some pretty decent money there already, so they may be willing to work with you to find a better price on the rest of your party’s party-wear! The worst they can say is No!
As a note, if at all possible, make this your gift to the flower girl. Make sure you’re taking the cost (however minimal) into your own wedding budget, rather than asking the parents to part with a ton of cash for a one-time-only outfit. They may already be on a budget for kids’ clothes – and a never-wear-again frilly formal dress isn’t generally included.
