Weddings are fun. They have us jostling our heads over the variety of outfits, matching accessories, trying new in-season looks, and combing separate dresses for different occasions. But amidst all this rush and oodles of excitement, you surely would not want your kids to show up in bland frocks or simple pants to an occasion as vibrant and traditional as a wedding.
Your tiny “fashionistas” need to wear that outfit which adds to the buzz of the occasion, and makes them look all the more huggable and cute. Here we have for you a few ideas to dress up your kids this wedding season:

- Let the kids be just kids
You are going to be temperamental about how your angel is running about, jumping up and down, skidding on their knees across the dance floor. Whether you like it or not, that is what kids usally do at any wedding. So, dress the kids in comfortable outfits, instead of opting for expensive tags or designer wear. Let them wear something that would not be ruined easily if they muck around in it. Also, it should not weigh them down or make them look excessively made up. They are kids, so they should look the part, right?
- Go for bright pop of colours
Hues of pink, peach, pastels, coral and parrot green look good on children in the daytime. If you are attending a night function, then carefully choose tones of teal, turquoise, yellows and reds for your tiny tots.
- Accessorise for that extra cuteness factor
A pretty satin bow for girls, or a bow tie for boys are cool, but add the extra “oomph” factor by making them sport a bit of accessories.Young girls look so adorable when they wear fairy shoes or sparkly jewellery or big bows attached to their headbands. You can also go for exciting tiaras, either floral crowns or plastic ones to add grace to the western outfits. A flower or a cute brooch pinned to their outfit will add a lot of excitement even to a simple design.
Boys, on the other hand, look so charming when they wear a bow or a tie matching with their belt, or when they sport cute cufflinks with their favourite cartoon character on it. Also, apart from sneakers and boots, think about mojris and juttis as well. Definitely, a must-adopt way to take your kids form smart to striking at any wedding.
- Traditional dressing ideas for girls
Traditional silhouettes on young girls make for a picturesque wedding scene. Pick between flower-patterned angrakha kurta that would make your kid look ethnic chic; or go for short, colourful sleeveless anarkali kurtas and churidaar for a more traditional appeal. You can also opt for ruffled kurta for a trendy diva look for your kid. You can try various mismatching combinations for your kids or match them with your own outfit style and colour. You can go adventurous or pick classy silhouettes for your baby girl, such as bubble skirt, long layered gown or a mermaid dress.
A lehenga will definitely be one of the best ideas if you are close to either the bride or the groom. Instead of going for elaborate lehengas, think about simple and classy designs, in brocade or chiffon.
- Traditional dressing suggestions for boys
Your budding gentleman needs to sport the rich cuts and regal colours for the wedding season. The boys can be dressed in trendsetting brightly-hued kurta pyjama or a Pathani kurta and salwar. For a cocktail party, he can be dressed in a smart shirt, half-waist coat and comfortable-fitted trousers.
Also, a rich sherwani with dhoti pants would definitely set your kid apart from the rest. Tiny men in bandhgala jackets look totally handsome as well. Do not forget to add a stole or a pocket square to complete their royal look!
