Often overlooked in their significance, but adored for their cuteness, flower girls play a supremely important role on wedding days. Courtney Prince, owner of Doloris Petunia, a couture provider of elegant yet sweet flower girl dresses, put it best: “They (flower girls) are the sentimental connection between our childhood and womanhood.” And although everyone in attendance loves seeing little girls throwing flower petals down a monogrammed runner, the flower girls’ garments have remained relatively lackluster compared to the extravagance that is a wedding or bridesmaid dress. Thankfully, this dilemma has been rectified. Courtney Prince and her wonderfully elegant company, Doloris Petunia, create dresses designed to draw attention to the magical journey that is so central to a wedding – from innocent child flower girl to beautiful adult bride. Courtney embarked on her journey to create amazing flower girl dresses out of pure necessity; she was getting married and was less than impressed with the options available to her. Having studies art and fashion in college, Courtney designed her own dresses and a company was born. Now, Doloris Petunia hand-makes gorgeous dresses in Courtney’s Los Angeles location, that showcase her craft-womanship by incorporating vintage lace, exposed gold zipper backs and unique textures and prints. We at LLL, think it best, when considering a flower girl’s dress, to stand out from the rest, and go with Doloris Petunia – we know you’ll be impressed!
