Baby’s First Birthday: Dress Ideas For The Big Occasion

Baby’s First Birthday: Dress Ideas For The Big Occasion

It’s your little girl’s first birthday, and you need the perfect birthday dress. By now, you know that you can trust Sara Dresses to point you in the right direction for any occasion. That includes your little one’s all-important first birthday. The occasion marks a milestone in her journey toward becoming a big girl. She’s practically a grown-up! You’ll be pleased to know that we have a variety of birthday dresses for baby girls celebrating their epic first year around the sun. Take a look at our best ideas for birthday party dresses and get inspired.

Baby’s First Fantasy Birthday

A popular birthday dress for us is the  Fiona in Mimi Pink--an excellent choice for your little one’s first birthday. At that age, it’s all about the photo ops, and nothing’s more adorable than pictures of your daughter in a fantasy dress. Let her dress up in a pink princess gown or unicorn dress and she’ll be excited all day. You’ll love the way she looks in a fluffy skirt, or you may want to buy her a special unicorn headband for her big day. Either way, your princess will definitely make an impresion! Just bear in mind that you may want to grab her another outfit to change into when she does her cake smash!

All that Snazz

At Sara Dresses, we love a snazzy baby ensemble more than anything! To prove it, we have plenty of super sparkly birthday dresses for baby girls from which you can choose. Dress your little girl in a fabulous frock with a spangled bodice and a tiered, ruffled skirt to make her resemble a miniature debutante. Don’t forget to go wild with the accessories. A sparkly dress all but requires an equally gorgeous headband, and she’ll need cute but comfy shoes so that she can race after all her little friends.

Delight in the Details

We adore  birthday party dresses with gorgeous details, too. Give us some frippery and finery and we are happy. Bet your little girl feels the same way, not to mention mom and dad. Your little girl will be picture perfect in a birthday frock full of fine details. Imagine her in a dress with a sequin-embellished embroidered bodice, sash and flower around the waist, and a sweet, petal-like mesh overlay draped over the skirt. She’ll look and feel like a princess on her big day.

A Little Something Sweet

Not every birthday dress has to be super bold. Sometimes, something sweet and delicate is the ideal choice for a first birthday party. Consider getting your girl ready for her cake and candles in something like our  Melanie Dress in Hibiscus. It’s easy to frolic in a dress like this, but it’s still a stunner for all those photo ops. Something soft and refined will look lovely in pictures. A dress with a vintage vibe will give her birthday memories a whimsical quality. The best part is that she can still move freely in a dress like this – which means she’ll be able to enjoy unwrapping all of her gifts and playing with her new toys while looking pretty as can be.

A Birthday Ball Gown

Your little princess is practically royalty. She needs a birthday dress deserving of her station. A tiny little ball gown is ideal. Sara Dresses specializes in the fabulous and fancy, so finding a formal frock will be a pleasure. The only trouble you’ll run into is choosing a single dress. As you decide, think about your little girl’s favorite color or which shades flatter her coloring and complexion the most. Maybe it’s baby blue, soft petal pink, or snow white. No matter what, we promise that we have a gown that will help to ensure her first birthday is a magical, unforgettable event.

All Dressed in White

There’s something about a baby girl’s birthday dress that’s all white. White dresses suggest innocence and sweetness, which is what her first birthday is all about. With a white dress, you may want to make sure you have that spare outfit handy for the presents and the cake smash, but for pictures with her decorations and her family, your little girl will be gorgeous in a snowy white frock. Depending on the season and the location, you can choose something with long or short sleeves – and perhaps a matching bonnet, too!

Go all out for her first birthday with a beautiful birthday dress, fun decorations, and memorable photos. A milestone like this deserves a stellar celebration! Let Sara Dresses supply the perfect party dress for her big day.
