We are going to my cousins wedding in a months time, and just realised I am going to be away for all of the weekends between now and then.
The majority of DS clothing is very casual, I hate ironing so its mostly long sleeved casual t shirt material tops. He has a couple of nice shirts so I thought maybe one of those would do, but do you think ordinary trousers are ok or does he need something posher ?
I'm not a big fan of small boys in those Monsoon type suits, but I think we need something dressier than his normal stuff. We do live in Scotland so I'm toying with the idea of a kilt, but feel this may be twee beyond belief.
Any ideas anyone ? Oh and he won't be wearing it that often, so not too expensive if possible.
Our DS wore a kilt to my sisters wedding when he was about the same age and he looked amazing - only thing was he was too warm and had it off as soon as the meal was over - ran around in his shirt and pants!!
Yes I was a bit worried about the whole kilt/access to underwear thing.
He is still in nappies and unfortunately the only thing attempted potty training seems to have done is to make him hate wearing nappies and try to pull them off when possible and get access to his magical penis.
I don't think we'd be very popular if he stole the limelight that way.
i think a shirt and normal trousers will be fine. i dont see the need to buy anything new. the important thing is he has fun and youre relaxed - not worrying about getting food down his ultra expensive new shirt or ripping the knees
Thanks naily. You not at the meet up eaither ? DS having a really long nap this afternoon, I should wake up him, but am enjoying the peace !
Sorry to be so faffy and indecisive, I just don't want to let our side down, its a v posh wedding, if the cost of the crockery on the wedding list is any indication.
Do you think ordinary shoes will be ok as well ? We have three pairs, one pair flashy white trainers, one pair flashy black sandals and one pair jungle printed Doodles with a lion on one toe and a monkey on the other.
I'm thinking the Doodles are the best option as they don't flash.
Took both boys to wedding last weekend one aged 2 one aged 3. Got them both a shirt and tie combo and trousers from BHS. Shirts with ties £11 each ('Suited & Booted' on the labels and both a pair of £4 / £3.50 school trousers in black. Not bad at all for under £30.
Monsoon boys have a really cute little linen waistcoats and trousers. My ds wore them last year to a wedding and everyone raved about how handsome he looked. Best of all though is that he was comfortable!
I second tank tops. They can look really smart under a nice shirt!
We went to a wedding with our ds last september, it wasn't a really posh affair but he did carry thye rings. He wore some linen shorts, a white shirt and a tank top and looked lovely while still being comfy. It wasn't very warm but if it had been I thought he at least had the option of taking the tank top off.
If you spend a bit more on a nice tank top in one size bigger, he can wear it with anything and for longer. I paid £30 for a Ralph Lauren tank top and my ds wears it over a Hennes shirt and it looks as if he is wearing an entire designer outfit. I can pass it down to my other ds, so not a bad investment in my case.
