Hi, We have a family wedding to go to next month, do you think my 3 little boys would look smart in this? Their ages are DS1 (2) DS2 (5) DS3 (7). The dress standard is cocktail.

I really like the shirt.

I think if it is cocktail I would look for a pair of slacks instead of cargo pants

I;m not a huge PP fan - I am however a Gymboree fan, there are some great looks here that would work for everyone original.gif

I think they'll pass muster, nobody really expects children to be really formally dressed at weddings. They're nice and conservative anyway.

As a guest at a wedding that's probably pretty close to what I would put my boy in. If you have a Target nearby check them out too, they have MUCH nicer dressy trousers than those ones.

White is courageous, my son would have a stain on there in about ooo, 5 minutes of wearing it.  I would personally put him in a shirt like that but a bold colour - like red or navy.

I reckon you could get away with the cargo as long as they are brand spanking new (as in, first wear for the wedding), the shirt will hang out over them anyway.

Going to still be hot, will a long sleeved shirt be too warm ?

Hi, Thanks All. Ive actually bought these outfits for them to wear, the pants look better than in the picture. The colour say blue/black but they are actually black I would say.

I live in the country so not much choice here, so I ordered PP by mail order.

Hi Yes I dressed them in similiar outfit for a family funeral last year, and the all looked very smart. They re not too bad at keeping themselves clean, probably will be abit grubby looking by the end of the night, but it wont be a late night for them.

Yes I was wondering if they would be too hot or not, but the ceremony will be later on in the afternoon and plenty of shade around, so hopefully long sleeves will be alright.

Is it too casual?

annasue, How lovely was he a pageboy or anything? We are going as guests.

I feel like they will be underdressed now! :/

Sorry maybe I tend to overdress but no we were just guests. I too live in the country so shopping is basic (read dreadful). I tend to get stuff like that from the net or from a local buy swap and sell group on facebook. I managed to dress him quite cheaply.

I think they will be fine.  I really dress my boys up for weddings because it's the only time I can get away with it (they hate it) but other kids at the weddings I've been to would have been comparable with what you are planning.  I'm sure they will look gorgeous!

I think they are fine.

I found some cute 5 piece suits (pants, jacket, vest, shirt and tie) on ebay for around $50 for little boys. I am getting them for my nephews to be ring bearers at my wedding.

Thanks All for youre replies, Im glad that you think the outfits are suitable.

I thought they would look smart and be quite practical and comfortable too, as it is still quite hot this time of year. If they were going to be ring bearers or similar I would have suited them up, but seeing as we are just guests I thought the outfits I have bought them would be suitable.
