1. Mix and match the color and the design
Indian weddings is all about playing around with colors. Do not get carried away by the trend and the demand of the event. Be very selective, in terms of color options and designs. The child can even set a style statement in subtle and sophisticated attire. You need not go over the top to give them an edgy look. The first thing you need to consider is the personality of the child. The color opted should match and compliment the skin tone. Match the shades of the accessories properly with the attire. For instance, in case of kids ethnic wear, you can coordinate the lehenga or suit with contrasting chunni. The same goes true with the clothing of boys. You can pair the solid colored kurta or sherwani with the printed chunni.
2. Consider the fabric
This is one factor that is avoided while buying party wear for kids. The style is the only consideration in this case. It is not just the looks at matters. The ceremonies of wedding are long affair and the child will have to wear those clothes for a very long period of time. So, make sure that you check the fabric of the clothes. Not only the outer fabric, but the material of the inner lining of the clothes is equally important. Try the clothes on the child before you finalize them and ask whether it’s comfortable or not.
3. Get it tailored
It is a common notion that the kids should wear loose clothes as it will keep them cozy. However, very baggy clothes is inconvenient and may restrict the motion of the kids. You need to take special care for the length of the clothes. It should not be very long to get stuck in the footwear while walking. Get the attire tailored before the day. Make the kids wear them and do a costume rehearsal. The attire should not be very tight at the same time. Strike the right size and it will only add to the style and comfort.
4. Consider the comfort of the child
This is the very first thing that you need to consider. Whether you go for the ethnic wear or for the westerns, it should keep a wearer cozy all day long. While the traditional lehengas are ideal for the main event of the wedding, you can keep it simple for the other ceremonies. Girls tunic dresses and tutu dresses are ideal for such occasion. Similarly, for boys the suit should be lightweight and airy for Summers. For the other events of wedding, you can go for the shirts and t-shirts for boys.
5. Avoid bright shades
Avoid using gaudy colors. The elegance and simplicity is the next big thing of the current time. However, if you wanna give a eye-catchy touch to the look of your child, then, coordinate the classy shades with the bright ones. The contrasting combination is the ideal way of get them ready for the event.
