    Let them pay for it! I would reply saying I would take no offence if they no longer wanted to use her as a flower girl but if they did still want to then yes the dress would need to be covered by them because it's a crazy amount of money for a flower girls dress! I would also let them know that there is a good chance she'll make a mess of it in a short amount of time and that you hope they understand that she is still a baby. If they still want to pay for it then let them and don't feel bad about it! It's their wedding and their choice on how they spend their money but don't let them make you feel guilty about it!

    I would be questioning the sanity of anyone who expected you to pay for a dress that expensive. I wouldn't be paying over $150 for a dress for a 16 month old.
    Seriously what on earth is going on with weddings these days.

    At first I thought 'maybe its a mistake - maybe the invoice includes her wedding dress'. Judging by your follow up this is clearly not the case.

    My DD was in my sister's wedding earlier this year and I think it was maybe $100? It actually might have been cheaper.

    Oh gosh the wedding must be costing a fortune if its $1400 for a flower girls dress!

    How old is your daughter now? Is she walking yet?

    If they want to pay it let them. Their wedding, their money, their call.

    I wouldn't try to get them to change their mind to a dress you think is abetter choice.
    I would only object if they didn't have a lot of money and the dress would literally send then into financial distress.

    That is absolute and total insanity. Unless they are billionaires. Even then..

    Send through measurements asap??? How is that possible? When is the wedding? Your DD could double in size by then, depending on how far away the wedding is. I guess they will fit it closer in time to the wedding?

    Yes! 100% agree with this!

    I guess if they want to pay for it more fool on them. Wow total waste of money. I've bought some things for my DS that's 3 months old that he has only worn a couple of times and I think that is a complete waste of money. And I'm talking about $30 outfits

    I agree with this. If they've offered to pay and you refuse you'll end up looking like one causing trouble (even though you're totally right in saying it's a ridiculous amount to spend on a dress!).

    I would also clarify with them that there's good change she will ruin it (possible wee leak, poo explosion, vomit etc), these things are totally unpredictable with children in which case you will change her so she might not even be in the dress for the majority of the night.

    If they're still happy to pay then let them but don't let them make you feel guilty about it, they're the ones choosing so spend such an absurd amount so foolishly.

    I am in shock that anyone (other then a celebrity) would pay that much for a piece of kids clothing! I personally wouldn't even spend that much on my own wedding dress
