Let’s face it, wedding and kids don’t always go hand-in-hand. Especially when it’s the ‘big fat Indian’ variety! When wedding functions are long and rigorous, it could set the alarm bells ringing, as they put a child’s endurance to the test. The truth, however, is that it ain’t the celebration itself that makes a child cranky; it’s what they’re wearing.
If the heavy sequin work on your girl’s dress is cutting a trail around the hall or your son’s vest is more of a piece of swab after a few hours of use, we’ve got a problem!
Think of it this way: you wouldn’t like heavy, tight, constrictive outfits on you when you need to move around freely, would you? Much the same way, a kid in uncomfortable clothes is asking for trouble.
Light, soft and comfortable dresses get kids going, so you only have beautiful memories of your child having fun. Though no foolproof way seems to cut it, the answer hides in plain sight –in the open seams, the restricted cuts, the tight fittings and the heavy work on your little one’s wedding outfits. And that makes me lean towards kids wedding dresses specialists like Kidology for outfits that breathe comfort with style.

Girls love to dress up, but wrestling her into heavily layered or worked numbers is a battle better surrendered. As for boys, well, it’s always an uphill battle! Comfortable fabrics are essential for wedding outfits, particularly. Whether it’s fancy network or sequins or what have you on top, make sure there’s a soft cotton inner layer that keeps their skin free of irritation.
But if you’re fretting about how to keep them looking super styled up and comfy at the same time, here are a few tips:
Traditional Trousseau: Never a better time to be a girl than at weddings! To make your little girl stand out, work in a mix of bright colours, classical prints, block prints, tie-and-dye, bold block colours with minimalistic embroidery and embellishments or go all out with sequins, shimmery and sheer fabrics… lehengas, anarkalis, salwar kameez, ghagras… there are just so many adorable options.
Pair up outfits with some traditional footwear, light earrings and event statement necklaces for the mini-fashionistas.
Western Charm: From flowy ethereal gowns to pretty knee-length dresses, western dresses hold a world of enchantment. Go for classical or modern designs in radiant satins and silks. It’s easy to match dresses with super cute accessories –hairbands, earrings, dress shoes, belts, bags, and the whole shebang—and you sure won’t be hearing any complaints from your little princess!
Ethnic Edge: Get your little boy to stay true to his roots this wedding season. Dress him up in cutesy kurta pajamas with Nehru jackets for a totally timeless look –or choose traditional prints for a classic look or mix up with quirky prints and embellishments to keep things fun and trendy. Dhoti kurtas or South Indian mundu and shirts are also super comfy options.
Suited & Booted: There’s nothing cuter than a little baby boy in a snug suit, pocket square etc.! But be sure you don’t attempt to strap on bow ties or neckties unless he can handle it without feeling uptight. Let your little boy turn into a perfect little gentleman dressed in crisp and smart suits.
Just remember to keep the outfits well-tailored but loose enough to allow enough movement and your little ones will sail through those never-ending weddings in total comfort and style!
