Regular readers of Make, Do and Push! will already know that we are getting married in September (eek!). Busby is going to be our Flower Girl, so when the opportunity arose to review items from the new Flower Girl range at Marks and Spencer, we were very excited to see what they had to offer.
We love Marks and Spencer in our household, so we had high hopes!
I chose the yellow Daisy Dress from the Autograph range and the Riptape Bow Glitter Shoes in gold for Busby. Both items go perfectly with our colour scheme. There was a fair amount of choice for Flower Girls in the range, although it would have been nice to see a bit more colour and season trend-following. For example, it would have been great to see dresses in shades such as mint green and lavender, as they are hot colours for Spring/Summer 2014 weddings.
My first impression of the dress was that it was very pretty! I love the yellow undercoat and the top layer of sheer fabric with embroidered daisies. It looks truly gorgeous on! It would definitely make the perfect outfit for a Flower Girl, or even baby/toddler wedding guest.
The dress fit (12-18 month) is brilliant; it’s longer than a regular “casual” dress which makes it perfect for the formal wedding look, and I love the way the skirt billows in the breeze.
Overall, the Marks and Spencer Flower Girl range is very beautiful and incredibly universal; I can imagine every Bride being able to find something they’d like their Flower Girl to wear.
The Daisy Dress is perfect for all Spring events; from the role of Flower Girl to birthday parties, and I’m sure we’re going to get a lot of wear out of it at impending engagements. I was a little disappointed with the shoes (see my comment above), and do wish that Marks and Spencer could have used better fabrics on both products. However, that being said, the items we were sent were reasonably priced and ideal if you’re on a tight budget as a Bride!
