Flower Girl Dresses Under $100
We definitely have wedding fever in my house! Or at least, we did. My beautiful cousin just got married. Both of my kids and I were in the wedding. Since my Aunt had been battling breast cancer for more than a year, this event was the bright light we were all looking forward to. Her only daughter was getting married. After a despicable year, gathering our entire extended family to celebrate was going to be EPIC.
Weddings ya’ll. There are so many anxieties that surround all the planning and preparations but one in particular seems to hold the most anxiety: the dress. Will the dress be in on time? Will it fit?
Flower Girl Dress: What Size?
Now that my kids are in weddings the challenge has heightened. Estimating their growth by the event date, ordering the correct size, getting the dress in time, and not spending a fortune on alterations for a dress they will wear for a few hours. Whew! It’s a stupid problem but a stressful one just the same.
In this particular occasion I was pretty screwed. I ordered my youngest a flower girl dress from JJ’s House. Consistent with my fears it was not going to arrive in time. Despite it being within the dress seller’s published timelines, they were even denying me a refund. Bastards.
I know you hear me brag on Amazon all the time and it’s not without good reason! I wish I had looked at Amazon’s flower girl dresses prior to ordering the first one. As the wedding date was only a few weeks away I took to my keyboard and searched for dresses on Amazon. I needed a dress that could get here fast, with little alterations, wasn’t going to cost me a fortune as I was still fighting with the prior dress dealer on my refund. Again, BASTARDS! Oh, and of course it had to be pretty.
Before you order a flower girl dress on Amazon!
- Read the customer reviews! Some even include photos of dresses that customers received.
- Order a dress that offers free shipping on returns. If you are unsure of size, you can order two and send one back!
- Add a petticoat or hoop skirt! Most of those photos use one even though it’s not included with the dress or even listed in the description. Adding the under layers makes a huge difference for as little as $10.
- Check the shipping dates. Some are coming in from China, some here in the states. It makes a big difference on arrival time.
My little absolutely loved being a flower girl, check her out in the video here:
My cousin’s wedding was a blast! They were the most beautiful bride and groom ever. We all had an incredible night. My bestie even picked up my little one and her littler cousins so the adults could enjoy the night kid free. The flower girl dress we got from Amazon was only $59, and it has a ton of life left in it.
