Looking for something nice and comfortable ... ideally not a suit but it's a black tie wedding so maybe he has to wear one? Trying to avoid horrifying the bride with my social etiquette inadequacies ��

Surely the bride would choose?

But if she's handed the whole shebang to you, then the safe, trad, posh choice would be a sailor suit.

Sailor suit would probably be traditional. wouldn't it? Or maybe a formal white romper.

Have you asked the bride / groom if they'd something in mind?

Isn't the bride choosing/buying it?

Esp if it's black tie, that means tux/sailor suit which usually means made to measure.

Bride cheerfully opted out of this one as long as he looks 'respectable' ...

What sort of budget Betti? Would he need an 12-18 months or 18-24 months, size wise?

Probably 18-24m as he's a little chubb!

Am wary of anything all white, the child is a magnet for dirt.

This one is out of stock but this idea with long shorts and a waistcoat would be quite comfortable whilst looking smart.

Or this, depending on what the fabric was like.

Have a look at monsoon, we got married in may and I got my boys outfits from thete,comfortable and smart and sweet, also m&S and next.

My youngest and my nephew had a shirt with a little bow tie, velcro up ones and a waistcoat.
