Finding the perfect wedding outfit for a younger guest is, let’s be honest, not the easiest task in the world – especially when it comes to boys!
First of all, you need to find something that they will agree to, that can withstand their constant need to rush around and slide on their knees, and that is comfortable to wear throughout the day and evening.
Secondly, it needs to look good. Which is where our selection of the top boy’s wedding suits on the market comes in.
As standard, we believe that boy’s suits can and should present the classic aesthetic of a formal suit – but with a few adjustments.
Perhaps the most classic in terms of design and the way it can be worn is the Heirloom Collection Kid’s Twill Suit, which boasts a soft royal blue jacket and matching trousers, with an additional waistcoat for extra smart occasions (or for summer weddings when it’s too hot for the jacket!)
If your child wants something a little different, you can follow a similar format with the Mini Me Boy’s Suit, which boasts the same fit and three-piece design but with a light blue material that will help them to stand out both during the day and on the dance floor.
With an eye to the need for flexibility, not to mention the fact that young boys grow quickly (and therefore outgrow their clothes at an incredible rate), another option is the Reiss Kids’ Babbington Wool Blend Blazer, which is finished in a textured grey and which lends itself to your own pairing – be it with suit trousers, chinos, or something in between.
For boys facing the pre-teen growth spurt in particular, investing in a high quality jacket and then adjusting their trousers as they grow is a good cost saving move.
Or why not give them the gift of a truly grown up outfit, with the Reiss Kids’ Aspara Velvet Single Breasted Jacket. A great jacket for winter weddings and for memorable occasions, this jacket is soft, warm, and incredibly smart.
In short, buying a wedding suit for a younger guest doesn’t have to be a painful experience – in fact, with everything from three-piece suits to smart jackets available, spanning a multitude of colours and fabrics, it’s safe to say that there really is something for everyone.
