Dressing The Kids For A Summer Wedding

Jun 13, 2015

Forgo the Dark, Heavy Layers for Light, Colourful Ensembles that They Can Look Sharp and Play In.

It’s summer, which means wedding season is in full swing — much to your kids’ dismay. While you try bribing them to stay clean and tidy in their lengha choli and kurta, they’d rather be out paddling seaside. This year, don’t fret the fight. Opt for a truce with attire that your aunties would dig and that your kids can actually move in.  





Keep it light and airy in this chic kurta fit for a prince.

This white kurta with an embroidered border and red pyjama is regal, festive and wearable.



There’s nothing cuter than a mini-me mother and daughter combo.


$263 US (3-4 years)

This cream and orange art silk lehenga choli that matches your antique cut-work anarkali is sure to be the showstopper.





Nothing says "luxe" better than the look of raw silk.

There’s dapper and then there’s chic fit for royalty. The raw silk sherwani with black appliqué will have the moms in awe and the fellas second-guessing their own style mantras.


Rock this readymade lehenga choli with dupatta.

Not looking for the fuss of getting something custom-made? Then opt for this faux chinon viscose readymade lehenga in a burst of summertime hues.
If all the shimmer and sequins have your kids acting up, then mix it up for the evening with these “can’t go wrong” Western pieces.


The classic pant suit.


$29.99 US (Boys 4–10)

Forgo the blazer and keep him cool in a four-piece beige pant-and-vest ensemble that means business.


This Jayne Copeland little girls' floral dress can do no wrong.

No matter how hot it gets on the dance floor, your bouquet of cuteness will be cool as a cucumber in this sleeveless floral number.

Accessory Essentials


Whether it’s a salwar, lengha or anarkali, don’t forget to pair the outfit with must-have colour-coordinated bangles.

Bombay Jewelry
$5 US

If she’s sporting a dress, then make sure the focal point is an elegant embellished headband.

$8.50 US



You can elevate any outfit when you pair it with a vest. I opted for a white one in keeping with the light, airy feel of summer. 

$39.50 US

And don’t forget a colourful bow tie instead of a tie that other kids can pull on during tackling sessions on the dance floor!

$22.50 US
