A summer wedding is a celebration for everyone, and it gives you a great opportunity to treat yourself and your little one to a special outfit.
There is a huge range of clothes and accessories for both boys and girls, so enjoy yourself! But think about the venue and be prepared for unpredictable weather too. For a little girl, a beautiful princess dress will be perfect. However, if it is a cool or rainy day, have a pretty raincoat to wear over the top. Maybe as the day wears on she would like to ditch the gown and play with the other children? So a change of clothes popped into the car could be a good idea. Look at her footwear and have the option to change from sparkly shoes or flowery sandals to a pair of practical trainers. There are times when a girl just has to run or play hide and seek, even at a wedding! http://www.styleforminikind.com/2015/06/vans-x-disney-princess-collection.html showcases some gorgeous princess-print trainers!
We all love a makeover for a wedding, so consider a new hairstyle for the wedding. Maybe she could have some curls or a princess plait. What is needed is a beautiful bow or special hair band to finish and complete the look. Take a look at online boutiques like http://bowsandbands.net/5-big-bow-hairstyles-in-retro-fashion/. This page will give you inspiration for a classy hairstyle suitable for wedding. The bride may be in a tiara, and the bridesmaids may have flowers in their hair. Let your little one enjoy feeling special as well.
Don’t neglect the boy of the house. Allow him to feel grown up and important on this special day. When browsing the shops or online, you will discover a whole range of outfits, from the very formal little suits with waistcoats. This will run right through to more relaxed and on style clothing. Wearing a shirt and maybe even a tie can be a real treat for your little one. Maybe he can have the same colour tie as dad or complement the colour theme you have gone for.

If on a budget you could dress him in a pair of trousers that could then be used for school. You may want him to wear a jacket. Remember, this doesn’t have to match the trousers. He can go for a more informal look and wear a waistcoat. This will be cooler on a summer day than a jacket and again is stylish and smart.
Make sure he has a change of clothes to allow him to relax later on in the day. He will want to join in the fun and wearing his formal shoes, and his tie may not be the best idea! Trainers with a T-shirt and shorts will make life more comfortable. Save his best for next time! This is a good guide if it does need a good clean upon your return home! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3067042/The-ultimate-guide-wash-EVERYTHING.html
Whatever you choose to dress your children in, think about a colour theme. Avoid white; that is the bride's colour! Think about the accessories; they make an outfit. Whether it’s the tie, the pretty headband or a special necklace you can be sure they will be dressed to perfection.
