Finding beautiful and stylish children’s outfits for a wedding does not have to be difficult! At Little Ladies and Gents, we think it’s all about finding an outfit that will suit your child’s individual style whilst also complementing the theme of the wedding – whether it be with a colour or to follow a formal or vintage theme. Above all make sure you choose something that your little one will feel comfortable in – think soft cottons and flowy dresses – not something which will make them feel restricted or uncomfortable. Below are few tips on how to select the perfect wedding outfit for your little lady or little gent:
Children’s sizes often match their age. An average six-year-old will wear a size six, however when buying a suit for a boy it might be a good idea to go up a size. Not only will they be more likely to get more wear from it, but it will also allow the child to feel less restricted in a piece of clothing they don’t often wear.
Think about the theme or venue of the wedding. For beach weddings, it’s perfectly acceptable to dress boys in smart shorts and a cotton shirt, whilst girls love a lightweight flowy dress.
If you’re having kids from different age groups as part of the bridal party and want them to all dress the same, it’s important to choose an outfit that will suit and allow for these different ages. A little tutu ensemble may look adorable on a two-year old but is way too babyish for a ten-year old.
Summer and winter outfits can be interchanged quite easily. Throw on a cute cardie and some opaque tights with a girly dress to take the outfit from warm to cooler temperatures. For boys, a smart suit is always a great option – suit jackets can be left off just showing the waistcoat underneath during the warmer weather.
Above all, make sure the children still dress like kids rather than mini adults. Their outfit should not only be stylish but playful and this can be easily achieved with cute accessories such as suspenders, bowties and caps for little boys or floral crowns and pretty sandals for little girls.
