We’ve done some browsing for you and reckon these kids’ outfits are the ones that’ll win come the big day. Now just to get them to stand still for the family photo…


1. Dress code

Carrement Beau Gold Sleeveless Ceremony Dress


Champagne is often in order at weddings but in no way is this more useful than in kids’ clothes, where white and cream are distinct disaster territory but champagne is the user-friendly alternative. Cheers to that.

2. Suits you

Howick Junior Tuxedo Jacket


For full mini-me style, it doesn’t get more matchy-matchy than a suit. This one will look adorable and the black shouts sophistication. Add a cute tie and he’ll feel part of the gang of ushers.

4. In short

Emporio Armani Chino Shorts


Shorts to a wedding may seem an unorthodox choice but chino ones like this can look super smart. Pair with a blazer and an Oxford shirt or polo and he’ll look utterly adorable – and stay cool which is often a worry.
