Most flower girls and page boys are between the ages of three years old to nine years old. Although age is one of the factors to consider, measurements are highly critical too as they keep growing by the minute. 

It is always recommended to note their measurements and check the size chart offered by the store. As mentioned above, kids outgrow quite quickly. Hence, when you note their current measurements, consider adding at least 1-2 extra cm while ordering the dress. Knowing their age and measurements will help you choose an age-appropriate dress with the right fit. You can also ask their parents to keep an eye on their latest height and body measurements to ensure you get the right dress for them.

This is a good time whether you are getting a pre-made dress or getting it made-to-order. Having at least 12 weeks in your hand before your wedding gives you enough time to manage any issues, such as alteration, exchange, or potential shipping issues from the store.
