Why does the flower girl sometimes wear white when the bride is supposed to be the only one in that color?

    The flower girl showers petals and is the symbol of innocence. White is associated with innocence. So it's okay for a flower-girl to wear white. Since she is a child it is harmless. The rule only applies to adults.

    White is a symbol for purity and innocence.  The bride and flower girl are the only ones who wear white if you have a flower girl...ergo they are both pure and innocent...as the driven snow like a babe.

    We know that white belongs exclusively to the great protagonist of the day. Whatever ceremony style is adopted, this color is reserved for the bride only . Even if it is a very elegant long party dress, in a tone of ice, raw or even off white , discard the idea.

    White is tied to the bride for symbolizing purity, so even the decorated wedding cake is usually also embellished with ingredients in this shade. If the bride and groom ask their guests to wear light clothes, they can bet on these shades at will, otherwise avoid any shade similar to white.

    Because white is the symbol of Innocence and there's nothing wrong with it.

    Because there is no law against it.

    Because that’s what the bride wants her to wear.

    Also because it’s a fuccckkking color, not something of grave importance.

    Brides, bridesmaids, and flower girls may wear any colors that the bride wishes. Not every bride marries in white, and sometimes flower girls and even bridesmaids wear white in addition to (or instead of) the bride. Sometimes groomsmen and grooms wear white as well.

    Again, it’s just a color. It doesn’t matter. White is simply a tradition and a trend ... not a rule.

    There are no "rules" for this.. it's up to the bride & groom.

    I've never been to a wedding where a little girl was mistaken for the bride.

    Silver, Pail-Yellow, White, Off White, Champagne, Ivory, Red and Black, No Shiny or Glittery Fancy Prom dresses are not to be worn to a wedding. Prints are fine. Children are exempt from this rule.

    The reason this colour etiquette rule is in place, their could be a family member or in law stepfamily member that may want to bring their spite to the wedding and try and upstage the bride and mother of the bride. 

    There are times you have to invite a person you don't like, but out of courtesy you give them an invite anyway, and hope they don't show up.

    Weddings are awkward occasions and if the bride's parents are having marital issues, the father of the bride might show up with his mistress, which could cause unwanted problems. When planning a wedding, make sure you touch on all the do's and do nots, and make it clear that certain people should not show up at the wedding. These same rules should apply to the Bride Groom also

    The best way to communicate this issue is to make sure you let people know what colours you are using at the wedding and not for the people you invite not to use. You don't want your brides maids to be upstaged either.

    If you are going to a wedding the best thing to wear is office clothing a is a business dress suit. 

    The etiquette rules may seem a little harsh, but you I'm sure you will have a nice print dress, something in blue, green, brown or purple.

    The best way to communicate this to your friends and family, is to tell them no Prom or Pageant dresses, no Glittery or Shiny clothing.

    Since little girls are sweet and innocent by nature, they are basically allowed to wear the white dress no matter how fancy it is. By nature they know not to upstage the bride.

    The way I've always seen it is white represents purity and youth. Flower girls are almost always young girls.
