When DS went to a posh wedding when he was 6 years old I put him in his school trousers (dark grey), school shoes with a short sleeved white shirt (unbuttoned at the collar, no tie) and bought him a waistcoat in burgundy from Ebay. I think it cost me somewhere around £10 - £12. He felt comfortable because he was used to the trousers and had a similar shirt for school. The only 'unusual' thing for him was the waistcoat. Everyone commented how smart he looked - the waistcoat took the outfit up to 'posh' level.
ok so he will wear a shirt. chino shorts are similar to denim short except they are a different colour. and baseball boots/pumps are basically trainers. leather/canvas deck shoes or toms style shoes could work too.
Well the seven year old who came to mine came as ironman
I would do a shirt, maybe with a quirky print and chinos. I quite like the preppy look of chinos and chambray shirt. I wouldn't stress about shoes as long as they aren't his football boots!. No matter how formal the wedding an 8 year old has a lot of lee way with the dress code.
