Bride Chic: Kiddie Couture- Dressing All Your Little Attendants

About Bride Chic What could be sweeter than adding a flock of kids to your wedding? Either making the trek down the aisle or weaving in and out of festivities, kids add a bright and energetic tone to any wedding. In Europe, kids make up the wedding party almost entirely. Remember Lady Diana's wedding to Prince Charles in 1981? Her eldest attendant was a junior bridesmaid. The rest were taffeta-clad flower girls and pages dressed in the traditional costume of the English Court. Whatever theme or direction your wedding takes, children's fashion usually echoes that of the wedding party. There are a lot of ways to dress kids so your wedding will be all the more special. You may be wearing a ball gown and like the storybook theme. Go all out. Dress your boy attendants in page costumes and girls in tulle dresses with floral wreaths on their heads. Present them the gift of ballet slippers to wear. They'll cherish these long after the wedding. Other ideas around the storybook could be a Scottish Wedding with all the groomsmen in kilts. Ditto the little groomsmen. There's no rule that says your ring bearer must be in a tux. Go ahead and put him in a nice navy blazer, tie and pants. If you are getting married in say, a vineyard setting, consider an Eaton Jacket with shorts, and flower Girl in linen or dupioni, the same shade as the bridesmaids. If it's a more casual wedding and/or money is tight, here are some options: he can go without a jacket and wear a dress shirt with tie. Find her a special little cotton or linen nightgown she can use afterwards. She'll look Kate Greenaway chic in it, especially if she goes barefoot. Remember, barefoot is okay on kids, particularly at an outdoor or beach wedding. The trick to getting away with this informality is making sure the rest of your little one's appearance looks festive enough— ribbons or wreaths on the head; possibly straw baskets of flowers.
