Summer Weddings

Top tips: Summer wedding outfits for boys and girls

Will your tot be a flower girl, a pageboy, or simply in attendance at a summer wedding? Whatever the situation, it can be a minefield trying to find the perfect outfit for the occasion. Here are our top tips for weddings.

Dress them comfortably

The last thing you want when the bride and groom are walking up the aisle is for your child to be fidgeting and fussing because of itchy, synthetic fabric or tight collars. Avoid heavy materials and choose garments made from soft and comfortable cotton.

Also, make sure your child isn’t restricted by their outfit in any way by choosing a sleeveless dress or an adjustable hook-fastening bowtie. We all know how much they love to sprint and skid around the dancefloor!

Calm, understated and timelessly classic, grey is a subtle and contemporary alternative to bright pinks and blues, and can be used in the nurseries of both boys and girls.

Size guides

When choosing a wedding outfit for a baby boy, girl, or young child, you will always be confronted with the question: what if they grow? To prepare yourself for this, always be one step ahead and plan for their next growth spurt. Why not use our Size Guide for help?

When should you start shopping?

Weddings can be stressful enough, what with all the travel, finding accommodation and buying the right gift. To make sure you're as prepared as possible, we recommend that you should start looking for your little one’s outfit when you begin shopping for your own clothes.
You’ll thank yourself for avoiding a last-minute rush!

Party Outfits

Top tips: Birthday and party outfits for boys and girls

Birthdays are full of food, fun and laughter. That’s why it’s important that your little one not only looks the part but has the freedom to enjoy themselves. Here are our tips for dressing your child for a birthday party.

Bring a backup

Unless you get all of your pictures taken at the start of the day, it’s a sensible idea to bring a change of clothes – especially for newborns and toddlers. Your child will inevitably find a way to make a mess.

From grass-stained knees to splattered food and drink, there’s a multitude of things that could happen – even if it is all part of the birthday fun! Bring along an extra change of clothes just in case and you’ll spare yourself any worry.

Dress them like princes & princesses

Every child wants to feel special on their birthday. It doesn't matter whether it’s a first birthday party or if you’d simply like to add a dash of whimsy, celebrate the occasion and create memories that will last a lifetime by dressing them in enchanting clothing.

Don’t break the bank

Due to the cost associated with buying clothes for special occasions, it’s important to make the most of your money. You can future-proof any purchases for special occasions by buying birthday outfits for boys or girls that allow a little bit of wiggle room. This will ensure they are able to get more than one or two wears out of their special occasion clothes.

Fortunately, there’s no need to fret about cost too much when you shop Vertbaudet’s range of occasion wear. We’ll help your money go further with affordable fashion in a variety of styles and designs.
