After about 3 months of trying on dresses, I found my dress and veil today! I love my Mori Lee Go...
For as long as I can remember, my little cousin Cameron was the perfect flower girl size.. full of wonder, utter joy to be around and totally girly-whirly-fun should be her whole middle name.
I've always known that I wanted her to be my flower girl.. so many sentimental reasons- she is the daughter of one of my favorite cousins (and bridesmaid, Jada), her grandmother is one of my Matrons of Honor and had a HUGE impact on me as a child and younger adult, Cameron and I have shared a special bond where I hand make her Easter baskets without fail every year ever since she was born.. and now, she is almost out of little "kid size"
I fell in love with this amazing dress that I just gotta have for my flower girl.. it's creamy satin with orange flower buds and burnt orange flower petals actually sewn into the bottom of the dress that flow as she moves. The back of the dress has a sweep train made of tulle that matches the style of my dress perfectly- almost eerily perfectly.
The dress comes with a matching tiara that has tulle that then blends in with the back of the dress' sweep train and finalizes with a sweet bow in the back.. Paired with some frilly little socks and I literally got teary eyed at Discover Mills Mall looking at it envisioning her in the dress.
The largest size it comes in is a 12.. and she is currently wearing that size RIGHT NOW.. my concern is most kids grow over the summer months AND she is at the stage where she could blossom in either direction.. I'm toying with the idea of buying the dress anyway and having it taken out if possible if she needs it, OR having more than 1 flower girl since I will have more than 1 ring bearer.
(The ring bearer will be one of Patrick's nephews and he will be pulling a wagon holding my nephew Aidan, and little cousin Dion who are both toddlers. The ring pillow will be resting in the wagon in between them as they ride down the aisle in the park)
I guess I'm just having a hard time with the idea that my little flower girl is growing up... Ah, I can remember her as a baby.. Now she may need a training bra in the next 2 years. AAAAGH! LOL.
What do you think? find another little girl in my family who can also wear the dress, or stick with my choice to highlight my favorite girl cousin? hmmmmm....
