I'm Glad You Asked...

Running off Marie's comment to yesterday's post, let's discuss the potential attire for the flower girls.

(Side note: flower girls --- weird word, huh? Repeat it to yourself 3 times. See. I told you it was weird.)

I can't imagine putting a 1, 3 and 6 yr. old in black dresses (plus my mother would have an instant coronary), so that leaves us with the options of ivory, blue or green. I'm pretty sure it's going to be quite impossible to find dresses that match in blue or green to fit all of them because of the age gap. I've been thinking it would not only be easier, but would look nicer, if we had them all wear simple ivory dresses and attach a sash in either blue or green.

(A close example. Minus the sash color. And ivory, not white.)

I'm pretty sure we would be able to find simple ivory dresses during all the Easter sales in Feb./Mar., and sashes (which are in abundance at virtually every bridal shop or pretty easy to make) could be easily implemented.

Yes/No/Maybe so?

I'm ALL for simple and cheap, since three of the four children are mine!! My vote is for ivory, but keeping an open mind for colors too. You never know what will appear with Easter sales!

Becca's right, you never know what you will find. We found size 8, 6 and 12 months in the same dress for the flower girls and you never know what colors they will have.
