When should we shop for the kids’ outfits?
This depends on whether you are getting the dresses and suits made or whether you are buying off the rack or ordering a pre-existing style. It also depends on the age of the child – certain ages grow from month-to-month, while older kids tend to be the same size for months at a time.
What are some tips for buying the kids’ outfits?
- Think about budget. If you are offering the dress or suit as a gift to your flower girls and ring bearers, then you have total control of the budget. If you are not, be mindful of budget, especially for the flower girls’ dress, as they’ll likely only wear it once.
- Think comfort before style. Pay attention to material textures, weights, lengths, etc. It’s a long day for the kids!
- Think practicality before style. Consider the colour and durability. Kids are messy and run around; you want to ensure that your choices are not too dainty.
Make it fun! Accessorize with bows, jewelry, ties and bowties.
