    Default How much for a flower girl dress?

    Ok so I got married over 7 years ago and I'm sure things have changed but $1490 for a flower girl dress?

    My brother is getting married next year and asked if my baby could be a flower girl. Of cause we said yes she will be 16 months old at the time of the wedding. Yesterday Sil to be emailed me the order form for the dress they are being made in Melbourne she designed it herself. When I saw the price I emailed her to make sure it wasn't a mistake but nope that's correct $1490!

    That's the same price as a wedding dress.

    That is ridiculous. I think my cousins dress was like $100 from DJs. She and my aunty chose it (they live interstate and it was just not feasible to go shopping with her). I just said it needed to be more of an ivory colour to match my dress rather than white, and that was that. I even offered to pay for it because it sounded like an expensive dress for a 5yo for one day!

    Errr no. No way. Unless the bride and groom are paying for it or you are one of the Kardasians.

    Maybe $200-$300 at the very most?

    I'm planning my wedding at the moment and have not budgeted for a $1500 flower girl dress! Most dresses that I'm looking at for me are that price.

    CharlieDE, I'm curious, what are you going to do with that info?

    Surely you can't be expected to pay that for a 16 month old baby, that's exhorbitant! Such a small sized dress too, I wonder if it's lot's of labour cost, but evenso that is ott.

    Good luck, I feel for you on this one!

    Nooooo. Not acceptable. You could get something absolutely beautiful for under $100.

    Also if they are getting it made they will need measurements quite far in-advance of the wedding. Who knows what size your DD will be at 16 months... does she have kids, does she know how unpredictable their growth spurts are?

    No way on earth would I be paying that much for a flower girls dress. Are they paying? Or expect you to?

    That is outrageous for a 16 month old an off the rack dress from myer or David jones would surely suffice?! $1500 no way in hell would I pay that (I only paid $300 for my own wedding dress ). If they want to pay for it they can knock their socks off.
    If they are expecting you to pay are you comfortable saying no? I hope so. I hate it when people are pushed into paying huge amounts of money for other people's weddings. I have a friend stuck in this at the moment as maid of honour, the dress, shoes, hens do etc is costing her a couple of grand all up and she's on mat leave with 2 under 2. So unfair.

    We won't be paying that I'm still on maternity leave and I think it's ridiculous to even think someone would pay that for a baby. I emailed her back saying it was way out of our budget just waiting for a reply.
