How the Flower Girl Came to Be

Have you ever wondered when flower girls became a tradition? Flower girls go back all the way to the time of Ancient Rome. These girls were considered to be in service to the bride and groom, carrying wheat and herbs as symbols of fertility and prosperity for the newly married couple.

And by the time Victorian era ushered in, flower girls wore distinct white gowns splashed with a little color or lace.

Enter the 21st century, and flower girls are still part of the wedding tradition. Flower girl dresses these days are designed to match and complement the gowns of the bridesmaids and the bride. While much has changed when it comes to fashion, it is obvious that the essence of the flower girl dress remains the same—purity, simplicity, and innocence.
