As title suggests?
I'm referring specifically to flower girl/page boy.
I'm feeling a bit miffed. Wanting to know if there's 'etiquette' for this. Or if it's just dependent on circumstances.

I think its a bit of rependant on circumstances. BUT expectations of who pays needs to be discussed upfront.
I never had any flower girl/page boy. If I did I personally would have paid.

We paid for DS's pageboy outfit at his Aunts wedding. Annoying, but I wasn't going to raise the issue with her.

Just curious OP, why are you feeling a bit miffed? Have you been asked to pay?
I didn't have any page boys or girls, however I had two Bridesmaids and I opted to pay for their dresses, hair and make-up and just asked them to pay for their shoes. They were told this right from the get-go, so nasty surprises! Both were happy with that and to that end, it gave me a bit more say as to the style and colour I wanted them to wear. That said though, I was very easy and not a Bridezilla.

I believe it depends on a couple of things- theirs and my own financial situation and whether they are dictating what to wear/buy/pay for. They can't very well expect you to buy a specific dress or suit and ask you to foot the bill.
We are paying for dd1's flower girl dress- the couple aren't well off, it's a backyard style wedding, we can pick what we want (just will show then what we have in mind) and we can get further use for it as a hand me down or sell it on eBay etc. They did offer to pay but we refused.

DD1 was asked to be a flower girl and I offered to pay for her dress. My fiends didn't have loads of cash, it wasn't expensive and I was honoured they'd asked her as she was so happy to be included. It was about $50 so definitely ok with me.
As for my bridesmaids dresses they paid for them themselves but I let them wear whatever they wanted. If I told them they had to wear a specific dress then I would have paid for it.

My sister paid for my DD's flower girl outfit (as well as the other flower girl) but I paid for my MoH dress.
I agree it really does depend, although quick google tells me the child's parent traditionally pays unless the couple wants something really specific/expensive and then good etiquette to buy it.
