DD is going to be flower girl at a very hot beach wedding in the US in July. Where should we look for a dress? (Or possibly a dressmaker??) We're in London.

Vertbaudet have lots of good value pretty dresses in their Arthur & Felice range.

Thanks all - have had a quick scan of all these on the net and there are some lovely dresses. Unfortunately the Next ones seem to start at 3 years, which is a shame - although maybe I could have a 3y one altered??

perhaps phone them or the store?

not everything is online

If you look at the next one with the little blonde curly girl, it starts at 3, but then lower down the list you get 1 1/2 - 2, and 2-3.

Aha - thanks FS

my dd was a b/maid last year at 18 months and she got her dress from next bridesmaid range -- was beautiful (and I say that as someone who hates next) and was only £20... however, it was not cottton and I think that might be the best material for a hot wedding... monsoon would be my first choice...

was going to say vertbaudet too!! some lovely dresses and matching hats ect

My friends DD & DS were flower girl & page boy at her nieces' wedding last year, their outfits were the Arthur & Felice (sp?) range from Vertbaudet & they looked absolutely gorgeous. They were cotton or linen outfits & in matching tones.

ebbie - don't know yet, bride hasn't decided

Thanks again everyone

just a little bump for any further suggestions

Still no update on the colour - I think that's going to be flexible - but it needs to be 'floaty.' Most of the dresses I've seen are pretty much the same shape - anyone seen anything floaty?!

Lovely suggestions everyone - the Boden dresses are great - the floaty one and the gorgeous linen shift dress - sadly they don't seem to come in small enough sizes
