It amazes me how quickly each year passes and although I’m amazed Halloween is fast approaching once again, I’m also starting to get excited about what to wear for this year’s party or even more exciting, this year’s wedding. There’s always one friend who chooses to marry in autumn and decide upon a harvest feast with a slightly spooky touch to the theme. Halloween weddings are spooky yet elegant, charming though frightening, it’s real dark romance!
The bridal gown is probably the most stunning outfit of such event but the bridesmaids should be well dressed, too! Halloween bridesmaids mostly choose dark colors to rock: black — it’s absolutely the leader. Glamorous gothic or soft gothic or vintage style look ideal for such cases. Dark elegance, stunning accessories and dramatic makeup will help you to finish the look. There are some beautiful Halloween bridesmaids dresses that impressed us most of all, and you can enjoy them below!
Traditional flower girl dresses are usually white with full, ruffle skirts underneath to give them the bridal look. However, if you want a memorable alternative wedding and decide to use black and off-white for your big day, it will be a great choice to get princess black dresses or black with off-white hues for your little flower girls. Black theme wedding is so chic and black and off-white are awesome contrasting colors that make every decor pop!
When choosing a flower girl’s dress, begin by checking out boutiques that specialize in children’s wedding wear. A regular wedding shop may be able to help, however usually these shops will only adjust adult measurements to fit a small child, which could cause the dress to look disproportionate to the child’s body frame. So, try to find bridal shops that they can custom make the dresses for flower girls or even for a baby. Flower girls add a cute touch to any wedding. Let her carry a beautiful bouquet or throw flower pedals down the aisle as she walks, which is usually the tradition of her role. If the child you choose is too small to walk, decorate a white or off-white wagon in a lot of black lace and flowers and let an older child, or bridesmaid pull the wagon down the aisle.
Do not forget that little girls grow fast when you choosing flower girl dresses. If you are ordering the dress six months in advance, you may want to add a few inches to the dress, which can then be altered the week before the wedding. Just like with any dress, it will be easier to take it in than adding material to a dress that is too small. Keep in mind the material you are selecting. A soft, silky feel will leave your flower girl less fidgety versus a rougher material that will make them itch and feeling uncomfortable.
Here are some cute and pretty black flower girl dresses for the inspiration. Make sure to pin the ones you liked the most!
