Weddings are a time when everyone's geared up to dress up in their best, and sashay down that hall while others take notice of what they're wearing. It's the year's best dressed day, since people plan months in advance about what they're going to wear, and if one outfit is really enough on that day. Should they change after the ceremony into something else before entering the reception hall? Or just go all out on one fabulous suit or dress that will make up for both events separately? Whatever you decide to do is truly your own way of handling your dress up plans, but what to wear is crucial.
Same thing applies to the children; they need to know how to dress it up and look presentable, since people are always on the lookout for something questionable to point at. You don't want to concentrate on yourself entirely and not give attention to what your child wants to wear. So find out what's in the trend these days, when it comes to what kids should wear, and find yourself kids' wedding dresses that are perfect for the big day.
When it comes to dressing up the children, it really is a matter of what they would like to wear. You can always suggest something that is in season, or have them pick it out themselves out of personal taste.
Three Piece Suit
You can go with a formal shirt look, and sport a smart vest with a tie tucked in neatly, draped down below the waist with a smart cut of formal pants and of course a jacket to follow. Tones that work best are hues of grays and black, coupled with white, and accentuating the outfit with a colorful tie, or a tucked in scarf in a neutral shade at the center of your vest if you like that sort of touch when it comes down to what to wear to a wedding.
Suit with Bow Tie
This look never goes out of style, with sartorial perfection in every stitch and cut. Make sure you select a nice two piece suit, complete with a bow tie that fits snugly at the center of your collar. Black suits always work best with a white crisp shirt and a black/white bow tie; it's the classic way of going with the suit and bow tie look. You can also check out similar style ideas that older guys would wear for the occasion.
Low Buttoned Suit With Skinny Tie
This is by far the sleekest choice of suit a guy could opt to wear in weddings. It consists of a jacket that only buttons down at the torso and is left open at the chest with tapering lapels, with a skinny tie trailing at the center and meeting just before where the buttons run down. It holds in style, and keeps up with the modern-day suit that most kids would love to wear, especially to a wedding.
Mini Tube Black Dress with Netted Shrug
The dress can be a simple one with a little frill work to surround the edges in a descending swirl, or you could go with some shimmer or lace work to make it more intricate pattern wise. Knee length works best, with a shrug to go with, that's netted and long-sleeved. You can either go with the tube dress on its own, or throw on the mini shrug for effect. This type of dress would also work best as kids dresses for a wedding.
Pastel Silk Dresses with Lace and Ribbon/Rose Work
Ribbons if gathered to one side of a dress, like say close to the hip, or with little cascading roses that surround either the waist below or hemline, will flatter a dress well. You can gather roses too, at your hip and pin in the material to make it fall in layers from that bunch, with lace work covering it or maybe embedded sequence or stones to really make it stand out. Pastel shades work best for weddings, especially if it has a winter/summer theme to it. Tones that work best for the guest wedding dress are green pistachio, baby pink and sky blue.
Single Strapped Gown/Halter Dress
For a more grand looking outfit, you can go with something more flow-y or something with lots of layers to make it look buff. A simple thin layered dress will do as well, with an off shouldered dress to one side, while a sleeve or strap is blended in on the other end. You could maybe even use jewelry work or sequence to make the strap or sleeve more detailed, making it look less ordinary. Halters are a great way to use a lot of complex work on the front, and have a simple low back design to complete the behind. Tones that work best are yolk yellow, blood-red, emerald-green, amethyst and turquoise.
Kids' wedding dresses can really come off in a multitude of ways with designs, colors and textures of all kinds piling in. It's up to him/her to decide what works best and above all what they'd be comfortable in. Children can take advantage of magazines and online help portals with design choices and dress patterns, to help in selecting what he/she would like to wear for the wedding.
