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?
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!
