Who can resist the charms of a rosy-cheeked, petal-strewing flower girl? Dolled up to the nines in her adorable, miniature gown, she's likely to earn the most oohs and ahhs of the ceremony -- until the bride makes her entrance, naturally.

Many brides assume that the costs of flower girl fashion are in direct proportion to her size. She's just a tiny little thing, so her tiny little dress should be a fraction of everyone else's gown costs, right?

For those of you with budgetary limitations, or even those who just don't like to waste money on a dress she'll outgrow in five minutes, there are plenty of options when it comes to affordable flower girl fashion.

Read on for tips and tricks that'll help you dress your darling for a reasonable price without sacrificing her precious appearance in the process!
