Wedding Outfit Ideas

Weddings are a joyous occasion where couples celebrate their love with family and friends. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to choosing the perfect outfits for the bride, bridesmaids and children. In this blog post, we will share some wedding tips and inspiration for your special day, focusing on the bride and her little entourage.

Wedding Dress Inspiration

The wedding dress is one of the most important aspects of any wedding. As the bride, you want to feel beautiful and comfortable in your dress, while also staying true to your personal style. There are several bridal dress styles to choose from, including ballgown, A-line, sheath, and mermaid.

For a traditional British wedding, you may want to consider a classic and timeless style. A ballgown or A-line dress with lovely lace detailing and a long train would be perfect for a traditional church wedding. For a more relaxed and casual wedding, a sheath dress with a simple design would be ideal. When choosing your wedding dress, it's important to consider the weather and the time of year. If you're getting married in the winter, you may want to opt for a long-sleeved dress or add a shawl or bolero to your outfit. If you're getting married in the summer, a strapless or sleeveless dress might be more appropriate.

Bridesmaid Dress Inspiration

Your bridesmaids are an important part of your wedding day, and you want them to feel comfortable and cute in their dresses. When choosing bridesmaid dresses, it's important to consider the style of your wedding dress and the overall theme of your wedding.

For a classic wedding, you may want to consider long, flowing dresses in pastel or neutral colours. A-line or empire waist dresses would be perfect for a traditional wedding, while a more modern wedding could benefit from shorter dresses or jumpsuits in bold colours. It's also important to consider the personal styles of your bridesmaids. A mismatched bridesmaid dress trend has been popular in recent years, allowing each bridesmaid to choose a dress that flatters their body and suits their style while still fitting into the overall wedding theme.

Children's Wedding Outfits

Children are often an important part of any wedding, whether they are flower girls or page boys. When choosing outfits for babies and kids, it's important to consider their comfort and their ability to move around freely.

For young girls, a floral toddler dress in a light fabric would be perfect for a wedding guest. A baby wedding outfit could be a cute frilled dress and a pair of patterned leggings with lace trim. Consider incorporating the colours and styles of your own wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses into the flower girl dresses for a cohesive look. For young boys, a smart suit or waistcoat, trousers and cute bow tie would be ideal for a traditional wedding. Alternatively, you could choose a more relaxed outfit, such as chinos and a shirt, for a more casual wedding.

Wedding Guest Outfit Inspiration

As a wedding guest, it's important to dress appropriately for the occasion while still staying true to your personal style. For a traditional wedding, you may want to consider a classic and elegant outfit. For women, a cocktail dress or party dress in a pastel colour or adorable print would be perfect for a summer wedding. For a winter wedding, a long-sleeved dress in a darker colour would be more appropriate. You could also choose to wear a smart trouser suit for a more formal wedding.

For men, a formal suit in a classic colour such as navy or grey would be ideal for a traditional wedding. You could also choose to wear a business casual blazer and trousers to a more relaxed wedding.

How to keep your kids busy at a wedding

  • Bubbles are always a winner with little ones. You can buy a little pot of bubbles to keep them entertained on the big day without making any noise or mess! You might even find the adults getting involved too.
  • Give your kids a disposable camera with a little “I Spy” game to play. Include a checklist of cute poses which your child can capture themselves (and you can keep the images too). Some ideas to include on the list are: a heart made with hands, a cute couple, laughter, a hug and of course the bride and groom together.
  • Buy or create a wedding-themed sticker book. Your little ones will love decorating the wedding dress or the bride’s hair with cute and colourful stickers – plus you don’t need to worry about crayons getting on the tablecloth.
