What does a twelve year old girl wear to a wedding?
Depends on her personal style. At a family wedding it doesn’t necessarily matter if the dress isn’t “cool” because probably none of her school mates will be there so if she wants to go with a “party dress” of the sort more usually associated with an eight year old she can feel free - but she wouldn’t get much use out of it so best to go cheap.
Monsoon will do some good options, and there’s probably a load of second hand ones on eBay.
John Lewis website is good for showing you lots of options and letting you filter them - so you could look at that together for ideas of the sort of thing she fancies and then google away. That approach runs the risk of her deciding that ONLY an orange prom dress with silver butterflies will do though.
Last year my 12 yo dad wore a navy trouser all in one thing( sorry can’t think of the word!) with cut away shoulders and ballet flats. The waiters kept handing her bubbly, so she must have looked sophisticated enough
My DD wore a velvet, blush pink pinafore dress from Topshop with a plain, grey long sleeved top with frilly cuffs. Grey opaques and grey suede Chelsea boots. But this was in the Autumn. The whole outfit cost about £120 but she has had loads of wear out of it since.
