DS1 who is nearly 13 lives in jeans or scout trousers and t-shirts, hoodies, really casual stuff and is not interested in clothes at all. I asked him to choose chinos and smart shirt for the wedding, took him into Gap as he shunned other places, and he picked:
red, skinny jeans checked smart shirt in several blues
They look great on him, but for a wedding??
My Mum thinks they're fine - she asked the bride to be who said 'as long as he's happy, he can wear what he likes' but I'm worried it will look wrong on the day and be too late!
if i get married i think id prefer everyone was happy in what theyre wearing (as long as its not drab boring black, black is for funerals). so i wouldnt mind in the slightest. as long as my wedding party was dressed smartly i would be pleased to have some bright colours among my guests
Haven't read the other comments - so apologies if I am repeating something - but red jeans sound great for a wedding. Faded blue ripped jeans - probably not! But the outfit you've described sounds perfect for a 13-year-old. My mum dressed my brothers, when they were a similar age, in Bermuda shorts (remember those?!) for my cousin's wedding as they refused to wear anything else, and she could not afford smart trousers. They looked fine - they sort of got away with it because they were young. Red jeans are so much more smart than cheap-o Bermudas. And about a million times more stylish!
