Ways to Save and Find Inexpensive and Beautiful Flower Girl Dresses!

 

We have all seen her…the flower girl who can’t handle her dress. It’s itchy…it’s heavy and chances are…it was expensive! In many bridal shops, flower girl dresses can cost just as much as a bridesmaid gown!

My number one tip that is embedded in most of my posts is that avoiding the “bridal” label will help you save money and find the perfect items for your big day…and flower girl dresses are no exception!

Your best bet for beautiful, inexpensive flower girl dresses that a flower girl will WANT to wear is to look at your department stores starting now through the summer. With Easter and Communion season approaching, there are many beautiful and inexpensive dresses available for toddlers-girls sizes (many available in both!). You also can use coupons, free shipping offers, easy returns, discount codes and of course Ebates to save even more on these dresses. If you wait until the Communion season is over, you can also find many flower girl worthy Communion dresses for less than $20!

 

The flower girl dresses were only $30! I found them at Macys in the spring section. They were comfortable and the girls wore them again after the wedding!

My favorite stores for flower girls dresses are Macys, Kohls and Kmart/Sears. Most of these dresses are less than $50 BEFORE coupons! That’s more than 50% off the typical bridal salon flower girl dress! Plus they are usually lighter and more comfortable too….and at least it won’t hurt so much if your flower girl decides to put pajamas on right after the ceremony =)

My favorite designers for inexpensive flower girl dresses are Bonnie Jean, Princess Faith, American Princess, Rare Editions and Jayne Copeland. Jayne Copeland dresses are great if you want the flower girls to incorporate color into the ceremony and not be a mini version of the bride. Bonnie Jean and Rare Editions both offer plain white dresses and dresses that are either colorful or have some details in color. The possibilities for a dress under $50 are plenty!

Here are some of my current picks!

 

Macys (6% cash back at Macys through Ebates)

 

This Jayne Copeland dress is only $57.99 (at time of post) BEFORE coupons! Plus it is in the 2014 wedding trend color…blush pink! (2014 Wedding Trends Coming Soon!)

This is a Bonnie Jean and one of my favorites for a spring or summer wedding. The detail is beautiful and the price is nice…$49.99 (for big girls) and $46.99 (for little girls) at the time of post BEFORE discounts!

More on the pricey side, this Rare Editions dress comes in at $69.99 BEFORE discounts.

Kohls (6% Cash Back through Ebates)

Kohls has an AWESOME return policy in case you need to switch sizes! It is easy to return online items in the store. You also can earn Kohls Cash on these purchases during special promotion periods!

This American Princess Gown is only $46.40 for girls and $36.40 for toddlers BEFORE discounts at time of post!

 

This American Princess dress is also $46.30 BEFORE discounts and is available in the 2014 trending color…blush!

This Princess Faith dress is simple and elegant. It is $56.00 for the big girl sizes BEFORE discounts and also available in ivory.

 

This American Princess toddler dress is only $36.40 BEFORE discounts and available in older girl sizes for a fraction more.

Let me know what you find!

Send those extra invitations to Mickey, Cinderella or even the President!

Inevitably you will be left with a few invitations or sample invitations. You can scrapbook one, frame one but what do you do with the rest! How about send them to Disney? Or even The White House? Both the Disney and The White House will send you back a memorable item to treasure as a keepsake for years to come! If you have the wedding invitation for a couple’s upcoming wedding, you could send it and surprise them with a unique keepsake in a frame! I would have loved that myself! This is an awesome bridal shower idea =)

 

Read below for more information and addresses. Now I just have to dig out my wedding invitation to mail out to Disney. The year 2009 shouldn’t be too belated!
