As one of the first to walk down the aisle, the flower girl is one of the first introductions to your wedding party look, so what you put your flower girl in can work to help set the tone. Flower girl dresses can be made to look like mini versions of the bridesmaid dresses, the wedding dress, or can be its own unique design that is in those wedding colors or wedding theme. One accessory that a flower girl can’t go without is her flower basket! Like her dress, there are a variety of different designs you can choose from, but don’t let yourself get too locked in to a typical flower basket and have some fun with it!
So, what are some options?
This flower basket (Taupe Pleated Silk Flower Basket) is not one that is necessarily out of the basket thinking, but it offers a put together look that will add style to your wedding. What is beautiful about this basket is that it offers a textured look, the cuteness of a bow, and a contrast to the starch white that is often featured in the flower girl look. So if you are looking to put your flower girl in white, we recommend using a colored basked like the one above to add dimension to your flower girl’s color palette.
Similarly to the taupe pleated flower basket, this lace and burlap basket offers up texture, color, and fashion. Additionally, it is completely one trend and works great across multiple wedding themes, including but not limited to country western, shabby chic, vintage, and fairy tale. With this in mind, one thing to look for when looking at a flower basket – just as with any wedding accessory – is to find one that adds to or otherwise incorporates your wedding theme. Thus, if you are having a beach themed wedding, then you will want a beach oriented flower girl basket!
Then there are the non-basket flower baskets. A lot of brides are incorporating buckets or boxes instead of a basket. The above “Rose” flower basket is sort of in between in that it will be carried exactly like a basket, but its flower design sets it apart from its wicker basket kin. These are the type of flower baskets that really open the door for you to get creative.
