flower girls

i must say that most of the time i am turned off by flower girl dresses. it seems people use a wedding as an excuse to dress up little girls in a poof of tulle and a mess of pink, and unfortunately it becomes more of an annoyance or distraction than a display of an adorable sweetheart :) so when i came across ulrika bogo's understated flower girl dresses i was refreshed. and not to mention, impressed. simplicity can be quite stunning and this is a wonderful example!
