How to Dress Your Flower Girl in the Winter

Posted by Grace on 4th Jan 2021

A romantic winter wedding will surely have plenty of sparkle, but if your daughter will be attending as a flower girl, both warmth and comfort will have to be parts of the equation. Thankfully, there are many ways to add cozy to flower girl dresses that will keep her warm and ensure she looks absolutely adorable on the big day.

Fabric and Hemlines

Chilly temperatures won’t work well with a summer flower girl dress. That being said, it’s a good idea to look for dresses in fabrics that are a bit heavier, such as cotton. Heavier fabric will provide her with some additional insulation against the cold. Adding a petticoat under her dress can also add additional layers if needed.

Another thing to consider is the length of her dress. A longer dress will help keep her legs warm and will also ensure plenty of elegance. For tiny fashionistas, toddler flower girl dresses with a hem that reaches between the knee and ankle will prevent tripping and allow for more freedom of movement. Older flower girls can easily handle floor-length hems.


A flower girl dress with longer sleeves is another great way to keep your little one warm and all dressed up. A great example is this lovely lace creation from Kiki Kids, which also features a longer hem.

Of course, if you’ve chosen the perfect dress but it’s a lighter summer dress, you can use accessories to warm things up.

Accessories for Added Warmth

There's a whole host of ways to add warmth to your daughter’s flower girl dress for winter. Tights are available in all colors and styles and can add some whimsy to her outfit. A soft sweater shrug or faux fur jacket can be worn well beyond the big day.

What’s THE perfect accessory for a sweet flower girl dress? A cape, of course! A short cape will cover her shoulders and add lots of cuteness to her outfit. A long one can bring warmth and fairy tale style to a glamorous princess gown.

Her shoes are another accessory to consider. Of course, seeing that it’s a winter wedding, closed shoes like Mary Janes or ballet flats will work very well with every kind of flower girl dress. However, you will want to ensure that they will fit properly if tights will also be worn, so consider this when ordering her shoes online.

Gloves and scarves are necessary for winter, but that doesn’t mean they have to be dark and dreary. A soft, faux fur scarf with a matching hand muff or fur-trimmed gloves can add that classic look.
