Getting married with young males in attendance? A lot of brides and grooms choose to make sons, nephews or cousins a part of their bridal party and this usually calls for wedding-ready page boy suits. It’s a rare occasion that requires little men to get dressed up in formalwear, but there’s no better time than your wedding!
There are a few important things you should keep in mind when looking into purchasing a page boy suit at Stellina Cute Couture for your child or wedding attendees. Children grow quickly, are less likely to tolerate heat and tend to get messy, so you should choose their outfits carefully.
Here are our top tips for buying the best page boy suits for your wedding:
Think about the seasons
Whilst adults might be able to tolerate the hot or cold weather, little ones won’t. Choosing a garment that isn’t right for the season will likely lead to a melt-down for toddlers and children. Even older kids will struggle with an uncomfortable outfit. Ceremonies can be rather long after all, and your wedding day events will be stressful for small children – don’t add to their stress by making them wear an uncomfortable outfit. You want to keep kids in a good mood on the day to avoid any tears during the ceremony or family photos!
For the summer months, choose lighter fabrics and consider shorts and short sleeved tops. For winter, make sure a suit jacket or blazer is included in heavier fabrics and that the pants are kept long. This will help them to remain comfortable throughout the day.
Think about comfort
When buying page boy suits, an important thing to consider is the fabric used in the suit. Itchy fabrics are not going to fly with little kids, and you might want to think about the fit. They will need to be sitting, standing, eating and dancing in their outfits at various times throughout the day so it’s important that it is comfortable enough for them to do so.
You might also want to think about their potential growth spurts when purchasing a page boy suits. Unfortunately, children grow quickly, which can make purchasing them an outfit hard. If you’re buying your page boy suits well ahead of time then ensure you purchase it 1-2 sizes larger. Outfits can be more easily taken in then let out, and it would be terrible to find the outfit doesn’t fit before your wedding.
Think about your theme
Page boy suits comes in all sorts of shapes and colors. Some are much more formal, whilst others might be laid-back and suitable for a beach wedding. Think about your plans for the big day and what attendees will be doing on the day. Is it a highly formal affair? You may want to consider mini tux if that is the case. Or is it a much more casual day? You might want to seek out linen, or a relaxed vest outfit.
Think about the colours at your wedding and what the rest of the bridal party is wearing, as you’ll likely be able to match the shade, fabric and style of your page boy suits to the rest of the bridal party.
You don’t have to go for an exact match, if it’s proving difficult to find one, related fabrics or shades will still look great and will make your wedding party pop in photos.
