There is nothing cuter than a mini entourage following you down the aisle. When we receive pictures featuring the beaming smiles of flower girls and page boys we all do a little ‘ahhh’. Not just for the cuteness factor but for the look of sheer joy and happiness on their little faces. Children adore being part of your big day. It makes them feel so special and I don’t think you can beat that childhood excitement.
Ok, so they may not always do exactly as they are told (I should know after my darling daughter decided to sit down in the middle of the aisle at my sisters wedding and bawl her eyes out) but having them involved is such a wonderful thing. Whether they are nieces and nephews, friend’s children or your own children you can be guaranteed that they will bring that little bit of extra ‘cuteness’ to the wedding party.
So it seems only fitting that they get some super sweet outfits to wear on the day and today we are sharing some of our favourite looks from the High Street icon that is Marks & Spencer. Their wedding game is seriously strong at the moment and I am absolutely loving the offering for the little ones. Those dresses are every budding ballerinas dream and the page boy outfits are off the scale adorable.
I know for most little flower girls one of the highlights is getting to run around in a pretty dress all day. Layers of tulle and lace will be sure to have them feeling like a princess and I adore this gorgeous blush lace dress for a hint of traditional but in a style that you know will be practical and comfy for them to run around in all day. For those who want a simpler silhouette then this gorgeous muted blue butterfly sleeve dress is a favourite of mine. I would actually rather like it for myself. I am also a sucker for a sweet floral dress and this one is just beautiful with it’s peter pan collar. There may also be kite flying bunnies running around the hem. What’s not to love?
It doesn’t have to just be about dresses as I think there is nothing cuter than a little ballerina tulle skirt coupled with a simple white t-shirt. You could even match your bridesmaid in a similar style as M&S have the most gorgeous blush pink or grey long tulle skirt. I may have purchased it for myself to wear to a forthcoming wedding….
Normally I am all about the cute flower girl dresses but recently I have found myself admiring many a cute page boy get up. There are some seriously dapper outfits out there. Think relaxed chinos or the cutest shorts and waistcoats. Also, the dickie bow on this set. It’s just too much.
You could of course opt for a very smart three piece suit to match the ushers and this gorgeous navy linen suit is sure to have any little man feeling very grown up. This soft grey suit would look equally good worn with a long sleeved shirt, matching waistcoat and mini tie or dressed down with a short sleeved shirt in a relaxed check.
So that’s some of my favourites for your littlest wedding party members. Have you decided on outfits and styles yet?
