In just under four weeks time, Little Mr, hubby and I will be attending our first wedding of the year. The wedding is for one of hubby’s work mates and it’s in Cardiff, Wales so we’ll be staying over and making a weekend of it. I do love a good wedding; the dressing up, the ceremony and the party afterwards.
Little Mr has already been to two weddings so far and for such a little boy, he’s doing quite well on the wedding guest front. Last year, the two weddings were in the same month so he wore the same outfit to both, saving me a bit of money and worry about what he was going to wear. This year with him on the verge of walking and already looking very toddler-like, we wanted to make sure he looked the part and had an outfit to fit the occasion.
Marks and Spencer have a fantastic range of childrens wedding day style and when I was offered the chance to pick out something for Little Mr, I knew exactly what to choose.
The outfit I chose for Little Mr to wear for the wedding is a four piece formal suit. It has the most adorable shirt and tie featuring a tiny star print and I just love the colours of the grey mix suit with the blue and pink.
The trousers are flat fronted and there’s a hidden elastic waistband which is perfect as Little Mr is a bit skinny for his height. The jacket is single breasted with a notch lapel and really smart button detailing on the cuff.
The shirt has a classic collar and long sleeves and has a breast pocket with button and panel detail. There’s even a false hanky in the pocket which is a smart touch. The pre-knotted tie fastens with velcro at the nape of the neck which I think is brilliant. No need to worry about keeping Little Mr still long enough to practice putting a tie on him. The small touches really do add a touch of sophistication to the overall suit.
We ordered the suit in size 12-18 months and whilst it does look a smidge on the large size, there’s plenty of growing room for him over the coming months and he’ll be able to wear the outfit to other parties we’ve been invited to this year. The cotton mix of the suit makes it a perfectly practical garment to wash in the washing machine at 30c so I don’t need to worry about washing it on a special cycle or getting it dry cleaned.
The outfit is stylish yet comfortable and practical. We will definitely be looking at Marks and Spencer collection of childrens wedding day style for any future weddings we may be invited to. How adorable does he look in it? He looks so grown up!
The four piece grey mix suit outfit retails at just £36 and is available from Marks and Spencer. I would have expected to have paid a lot more for an outfit of this quality. It really is a lovely suit.
