Wedding: What does one put on a seven year old girl who rather be put in a cat of her own mucus than in a pretty dress?
You could put her in 'boys' clothes, she'd surely look great and be really comfy (although maybe a bit hot). But, "those members of the family that have "standards" " will tut, winge and gossip about it. TBH I'd be tempted to let them get on with it, DD picking up on it and feeling rotton would be a worry too though. It's a tough call and I can understand the desire to avoid that sort of nonsense. TBH they'd probably tut, winge and gossip (although possibly to a lesser degree) about anything that isn't an actual, formalish dress.
What sort of thing does she like to wear day to day?
@honeydragon I have one of these in ten year old form! For smart she has a pair of sequin shorts (oddly sequins are ok apparently as long as they aren't pink or girly eg ok in batman logo 😂) and then I'd prob do the jacket thing. I def wouldn't get her in ballet pumps like others have suggested, but she'd wear flip flops.
Lucky you still have a bun of long hair, ours went short a while ago.
