Recently asked you guys whether to give last minute invite to dds best friend. As all the other four girls will be flower girls I didn't want her left out. I tried to find same dress which is blue floral but its sold out. Found one that is a similar pattern but not sure if having one dress different might single this girl out.

Should I let this girl wear my dds dress and have dd and my one year old daughter wear white dresses.

Or should I stick with the slightly mismatched dress for dds friend?

I don't know anything about these things!

Girls will all have smells shoes and flower crown.

I'd give your eldest dd a slightly different dress and promote her to "head" flowergirl. You sound very kind.

How old are the girls? Both ideas sound lovely, and she'll be so happy to be included.

Thank you! I don't have any bridesmaid just girls! The youngest is a baby. I expect she cares the least!

My dds are 1 and 6. The other two are both 6 and there is one 12 year old

I would 'promote' your daughter to bridesmaid rather than flowergirl and get her a new special dress. It's her mum's wedding and she deserve a special role.

Thanks! Should she have the same dress as one year old sister?

No, I'd let her have something of her own.

That's karma for being so kind and thoughtful regarding DD's friend.

Have a lovely wedding. I am sure all the flower girls will look gorgeous.
