SPOTLIGHT ON

The mini guest guide

11th January 2018




As excitement mounts in the run-up to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day in May,


wedding mania is firmly upon us. If you are joining the happy couple in nuptials this year, it’s never too 


early to start planning what the littlest guests will be wearing. Whether you are engaged or helping 


a friend or family member with their special day, we’ve got tips on what to dress the kids in. 


Let the countdown begin…

The dream theme


Start with the colour palette. As Prince George and Princess Charlotte prove, kids’ outfits should 


blend in – and not jar with – the wedding party. Our range of bridesmaid and flower girl dresses in subtle 


silvers, blush pinks and gold will complement most bridal looks. That said, don’t be afraid to go for 


stronger colours like deep reds and navy – contrast can have real impact.




The picture-perfect pageboy


It’s easy to get distracted by what the girls are wearing but a dapper little pageboy can achieve 


that stand-out wedding snap. From adorable waistcoat sets complete with bow-ties to the sharpest 


little blazers, we have everything he'll need to look polished on the big day. 




Go for maximum comfort


Comfy kids are happy kids. To prevent grumbles and discomfort, make sure everything fits, especially the shoes. 


If you are buying for other children, always double check sizes with parents, and if in doubt, order extra. 


If you can, get the children to wear them in before the big day. Remember we offer quibble free returns within 


28 days on non-sale items to make things easier.

Ace the accessories


It’s never too early to start thinking about the finer details – from glittery ballet pumps to brilliant ties – 


all our accessories can be kept and worn for parties all year around. As well as tying in with the colour themes of the 


bride and groom, adornments are also a great way for little participants to make their look individual. 




Groovy little guests


Even if your kids aren’t part of the main wedding party, you’ll still want them to look the part. Just ensure 


they don’t clash with – or worse, look exactly like – the bridesmaids and pageboys. If in doubt, always check what’s 


appropriate with the bride-to-be. Also, find out how formal the wedding will be. Are the kids expected to be in suits and 


smart dresses or perhaps a more casual twist, say cords with braces and a bow-tie for boys?




Be prepared


Weddings are usually long and children are bound to get tired and bored at times so think about the 


practicalities to avoid whingeing. Factor in some form of entertainment or distraction during moments of 


downtime like tablets with headphones and colouring books. And don't forget the snacks!
