Although many modern weddings steer towards a ‘no children’ policy, there are still those who love nothing more than including the whole family, kids and all, for the celebrations. One of the best weddings we’ve ever been to was one where the bride spent ages on the dance floor with the children! There’s a lot to be said for having children at a wedding; they add an element of cuteness and fun to the whole day and just look adorable in their smart little outfits.
However, if you’ve been invited to a ‘family-friendly’ wedding, then you need to think long and hard on how to dress your kids for the occasion. Their outfits not only need to make them look smart, but to make everyone’s day more enjoyable there are a number of practical elements to consider too:
Let them be kids
Typically with weddings there is a smart dress code, which can be the perfect excuse to splash out on something your children wouldn’t normally wear. But before you get carried away don’t forget that kids will be kids and will want to run around, play, jump and inevitably get a little messed up. So rather than battling with them and spending your day worrying about their expensive threads getting trashed, choose something that can withstand a little playtime without getting wrecked.
