You want the little angels to look beautiful. But a practical side of you can't see spending a fortune on kids' clothes--because kids get dirty and they grow out of everything.
At Target this morning I was struck by some of the most beautiful little girls' formal dresses. And the price? $23 and lower. This time of year most department stores should have a good selection of formal kids' wear. Between Easter and First Communion, there are lots of options to choose from for spring and summer party dresses.
Like with the rest of the Wedding Industry, adding "flower girl" to the name of the dress increases the price at a boutique, when really any nice dress will do the job. You don't need to spend a fortune on one-wear-only clothes in order for the little rascals to look adorable if you don't want to.
