When Should You Buy Infant Flower Girl Dresses?

Flower girls are proof that big things come in small packages. Baby Beau and Belle loves putting the spotlight on the littlest, most adorable role in your wedding party – the flower girl! Since this is one of the most beloved components of a wedding ceremony, we want to make sure her dress is worthy of her significant role.
While flower girls are traditionally between 3 and 10 years old, there are no rules that they can’t be younger (or older!) Infant flower girl dresses are a quickly growing trend. As long as that pint-sized princess is special to you, the bride, she can partake in the celebration. Whether she walks down the aisle with grace or runs and hides under a table, it will make for an endearing and sweet memory.
With the myriad of details that go into a wedding, it’s easy to let the flower girl’s dress fall to the wayside. Adding this important step to your planning timeline, however, can make for a sweet, stress-free opening on your big day. Since your flower girl is growing every day, there is a right time and a wrong time to buy a flower girl dress. If you buy it too early, she might outgrow it before the ceremony. Too late and it might not arrive in time.

Wedding Infant Flower Girl Dress
A growing trend sure to delight your guests is the adorable addition of infant flower girls in beautiful gowns. Lovingly held by a close relative, infant flower girls boost the cuteness factor of any wedding entourage. When selecting infant flower girl dresses it is particularly important to consider your planning timeline. Communicate with the baby’s mother for suggestions on sizing. She might be able to guide you one way or another, especially if you aren’t familiar with baby clothing sizes. And if you know what dress you'd like, our sizing chart can be a guide for finding the right fit. 
What if the baby hasn’t been born yet but it’s time for you to order her infant flower girl dress? Infants and babies typically fall within their size range (Newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, etc.) but many are smaller or larger than their same age cohort. It would be wise to purchase two dresses in different sizes to ensure a proper fit.  One infant flower girl dress could be in Newborn or 0-3 months while the second would be the next size up. The smaller or larger of the two can be worn at a later date or possibly returned if unworn. As always, if you've any questions regarding our infant flower girl dresses, message us and we will lead you to the perfect outfit.

In sum, when planning stick to these guidelines: Alterations and exchanges for flower girl dresses and infant flower girl dresses can take 1 to 3 weeks. If ordering from our website, you’ll have plenty of time. If you shop from a brick and mortar store, order your items 8 to 10 weeks before the wedding. This will be close enough to the wedding to gauge the flower girl’s approximate dress size but far enough away to ensure time for last-minute exchanges or alterations.
