Pretty Flower Girls and Dapper Page Boys
If you have chosen your picture perfect page boys and flower girls, you are no doubt excited about dressing them for your impending nuptials. Flower girls and page boys make a super cute addition to your bridal party. What is more, they look simply adorable in their little outfits! If you are unsure what themes to go for when dressing your page boys and flower girls, then look no further:
All little girls dream of being princesses, and being a part of the bridal party helps them to partially realize this dream. There are gorgeous array of stunning bridesmaid dresses available to ensure that the little girls that are a part of your big day feel as special as you do.
While many girls are often prim and proper in their dresses, you do need to ensure that the material that you choose for your flower girl is robust. Children are known for being clumsy, so you don’t want to spoil the overall look of their dress should they tear it. While chiffon is a fabulous fabric for adult bridesmaids, little girls are prone to pulling their dress. With that in mind, it will look messy and unkempt by the time the evening reception comes round.
Think about your overall theme, and what kind of wedding that you are having. Ideally, flower girls should be dressed in a simple neutral dress that is adorned with a gorgeous silk sash around the middle. The color of the sash should match your carefully chosen wedding theme colors. Children should not be buried in masses of color, so it is important to keep the dress neutral in tone to ensure that they do not look swamped in their bridal attire. Ideally, you should choose a dress that is similar to your own, so that they feel included in your big day. In terms of footwear, opt for flat, ballet style pumps. While they may feel that a small heel is necessary (what little girl doesn’t want to feel grown up in high heels!) you want them to glide elegantly down the aisle. What is more, you don’t want them to suffer any injuries at the behest of your big day!
In the spirit of coordinating your flower girls, with your adult bridesmaids, ensure that their flowers are a smaller version of your bridal flowers. While you may have a large posy, that is fit for a queen, this will be difficult for small hands to hold, so request that your florist makes a smaller bouquet up for your little girl. They will feel incredibly grown up while they are walking down the aisle and they are certain to have that much coveted ‘cute factor’ that all kids seem to possess.
There is nothing more adorable than seeing a little boy in a suit. You should endeavor to match the page boys suit to the grooms suit. They will feel incredibly grown up, and look amazing too.
As with any outfits for children, you need to consider practicality, and functionality, above all else. Little boys are known for being rambunctious, and as such they will be no doubt running around the venue with wild abandon. You need to ensure that their suit will be able to withstand such rough treatment. With this in mind, you will need to ensure that their suit is made from a quality material, such as linen. Boys linen shirts, as well as matching linen suits will guarantee that they look the epitome of smart, while also remaining durable enough to withstand any roughhousing that comes from being a little boy. What is more, linen is perfect for suits as it will keep them cool enough for the day time proceedings, but also warm enough at night when the temperature dips.
Choosing footwear for page boys is incredibly easy. Simply coordinate their footwear with their adult counterparts. Stunning brown brogues, or black loafers will ensure that your little man looks amazing during the ceremony, but are also comfortable enough for him to run around in on the night time.
When adorning your page boys buttonhole with matching flowers, try to steer clear of safety pins in which they may hurt themselves on. What is more, the buttonhole should be a smaller, replica of the grooms and best man’s button hole. They will look absolutely adorable with their matching flowers and they are sure to be a part of the wedding day.
Picture Perfect Outfits
Whatever outfits you choose for your mini-attendees, they are sure to look incredible. Many people seem to dismiss children from their weddings, although this seems rather silly. Children will keep you on your toes during the wedding, and, coupled with their brutal honesty, you are sure to have an amazing day. The children in your life will make treasured memories from your wedding day that they will love for a lifetime.
