The cute little girl scattering petals in your path will look adorable no matter what she is wearing, but as a member of the wedding party you still want to get her look just right and flower girl accessories is an important part of that. These top tips on flower girl accessories should help to inspire you.
The key with flower girl accessories is to get the right balance between a childish item, and a piece of jewellery that is trying to look too grown up. Put the emphasis on cute, with heart or floral pendants and bracelets, but make sure the accessories is still tasteful.
Try to keep the flower girl’s accessories simple with just one or two pieces, such as single necklace, or a headpiece and bracelet. She will be too small to be overloaded with accessories.
Don’t just stick to traditional pieces of accessories such as necklaces, bracelets and earrings, but consider flower girl accessories instead. She will be young enough to look cute with fairy or butterfly wings, a sparkling wand, or a floral headdress.
Buy something that will last throughout her childhood to remind her of the part she played in your wedding day. If you are buying a necklace or bracelet, look for one with an extension chain so she can wear it as she grows.
Young girls look great with a bit of colour, so look out for flower girl accessories that includes gemstones or glass beads in your wedding accent colour. If the flower girl wears a coloured version of your bridesmaids’ accessories you will get a unified look.
Giving your flower girl her wedding accessories as a thank you present will make her feel really special, especially if you give it to her in the morning when you are all getting ready together. Make sure you tell her parents that you will do this in advance so they don’t buy her something themselves.
If you want your flower girl to wear earrings check whether she has pierced ears. If not you may want to reconsider your options as clip on earrings can easily come off and get lost, or become crooked. If she does have pierced ears make sure you buy good quality gold or silver earrings as reactions to cheaper materials are common, particularly in recently pierced ears.

Try to treat your flower girl like your bridesmaids as far as possible. If you are presenting their accessories in a beautiful gift box, try to do the same for her even if her accessories come from a different store. She will love to feel grown up and like one of the girls.
Some accessories stores allow you to make and design your own accessories using beads and charms. Taking your flower girl and bridesmaids to make their wedding accessories can be a great outing for all of you, and a chance for your flower girl to get to know the older bridesmaids.
While your flower girl will undoubtedly treasure her wedding accessories, don’t be angry or offended if it gets lost or broken. Bracelets do slip off small wrists, and necklaces can get snapped when she’s running around with the other children after the ceremony. Try to find accessories that are strong and durable, but if it does come to a sticky end be prepared to console her.
