FAQ: Wedding Jewelry for Your Flower Girl? Sure!

Brides-to-be often have the most questions about dressing flower girls – especially when it comes to wedding jewelry and accessories. Here are some of the questions we’ve been asked in the past:

What style of jewelry is appropriate for flower girls?

You should look for flower girl jewelry that’s similar to the wedding jewelry your bridesmaids are wearing, whether that’s pearl wedding jewelry or rhinestone wedding jewelry. Your flower girl will look beautiful in whatever you choose, as long as you pick accessories that harmonize with your whole bridal party’s style.

Should I ask my flower girl’s parents for input?

Only if you want to. They’ll have a good idea of whether she’ll tolerate wearing a necklace or tiara for the length of the ceremony or if she’s one of those little girls who can’t seem to avoid snagging necklaces and undoing hairstyles.

Are there special wedding jewelry options for flower girls?

Yes! Flower girls are typically younger and so will look best in more delicate jewelry – plus, necklace lengths are typically designed for the adult frame. You can always have a jeweler shorten a necklace or bracelet for your flower girl, but consider that many flower girls would much rather wear a flower girl tiara than a necklace set.

Are the rules the same for wedding jewelry for junior bridesmaids?

In our experience, a junior bridesmaid can be anywhere from 7 years old to in her upper teens. Think about the girl herself when buying wedding jewelry for a junior bridesmaid. If she’s on the younger side, choose smaller, more delicate pieces that won’t look overwhelming. But for older junior bridesmaids, we recommend buying the same wedding jewelry you’re buying for your of-age ‘maids.
