As a mom, I have been very busy getting ready for my son’s wedding so to say I didn’t post for awhile was not the only thing amiss – so for April and also March, we posted a wedding we have wanted to feature and decided to post it for the two months! This Wedding of the Month features two distinctly different flower girl dresses in ballet pink and new ivory.
I remember when I was a young girl, younger than my sister, I loved it when my mother put us in matching dresses. However, my older sister absolutely hated it…. so I suppose when I chose this pink wedding to feature, it would have pleased my sister enormously as she didn’t get to wear complimentary dresses to mine. Each style above is appropriate for their ages. The older sister, wearing Pegeen Fairy Tale Dress Style 909 in silk, tulle and rhinestone straps and her younger sister wears Pegeen Couture Style 402 with a Cinderella Bustle and Bow.
This pretty little flower girl dress was Style 359 from our Pegeen Classic Collection. Her dress is available in 200+ colors of silk and an mix and match the colors. On top of the skirt is a full layer of organza. And of course – for this young flower girl, its all about the swirl!
How can I get a retro look for my wedding?
There are many components to the look of your wedding and reception, from the attire to the décor, music and food that you can style to achieve that look of a bygone era. Weddings are a time for sentimentality and family, often honoring ancestors and cherishing the past. So, if you are one of those people, you should consider using retro components for your wedding.
First, let’s talk about attire. Some brides will wear their mother’s or their grandmother’s white wedding dress, or their great-grandmother’s ivory wedding dress, the center of attention walking down the aisle and setting the vintage tone for the day. For the bridesmaids and the flower girls, certain colors and color schemes evoke certain times in our history. Pink and black and aqua blue and black were very popular in the 1950s. Neutrals and champagne tones were all the rage during the Gatsby era, the 1920s. We at Pegeen are cognizant of the desire of brides to have significant color choices, regardless of the reason. We offer over 200 colors of silk for flower girl dresses, ring bearer suits and junior bridesmaid dresses, allowing brides to create the color palette they envision.
Our website contains thousands of images of dresses and suits in every color combination imaginable to help give brides and moms ideas on what is possible. It is always easier to put together a plan if you have a blueprint readily available. We have 22 pages of Galleries and Testimonials featuring photos of real weddings with our outfits and over 35,000 images of dresses and ring bearer suits that we have made in our 35 year old history of flower girl dresses in various color combinations.
We have traditional styling that lends itself to a classic or vintage look, a look that never goes out of style and the colors to achieve it.
I have been so lax about our featured flower girl dresses and weddings of the month – and keep forgetting to post them so I will do so here over the next few posts. I had a particular fondness for this wedding visiting the area several times with my travels to California – for as crazy as the politics and the over spending, it sure is a gorgeous state. The Sonoma Valley is no exception.

We posted our favorite wedding of the month as we kick off 2015 and the count down to our Flower Girl Dress and Wedding of the Year. The wedding was in Puerto Rico and the bride chose orange, hot pink and turquoise for her flower girl dresses and junior bridesmaids.
To start off 2015, we chose our Pegeen Flower Girl Dress of the Month for January. The flower girl dress was in new ivory silk with a hot pink sash called Shock and in Style 356 from the Pegeen Classic Collection.

The Junior Bridesmaids were in coordinating colors. The bride chose Style 398, also from the Pegeen Classic Collection of flower girl dresses.
This little flower girl and her tiny escort are featured in our December Wedding of the Month for 2014. She is wearing our flower girl dress from Pegeen Classic Style 356 in bisque and peony pink silk with ivory tulle. His ring bearer suit is also in bisque (creme) silk with peony pink cummerbund and covered buttons from our Pegeen Couture Collection Style 509. I was delighted that Charlotte (the bride) exclaimed when they were received over in the United Kingdom ‘surely, they are clothes that the Royal Children would wear’ – wow, coming from a Brit, we were pretty excited.
