There are hundreds of Wedding Planner Guides out there but almost none mention when to sort out the little ones! On your month by month plan, do add in some time to buy their outfits – at least eight weeks before. Sometimes, if they are not local to you, this takes a little more planning to meet up and try on some styles, and to see what works for you and them (this is especially important for the little girls as their feelings always show!)
A lot of our brides have a definite idea of what they want before they consult us and some just want to see what will suit the little ones involved. The beauty of our service is that we offer a bespoke service so you can mix and match our styles to have exactly what you want.
We recommend that you look at our website or come to our showroom in East Sussex to get an idea of what you want. If you would like to coordinate the sash colour of their dresses with the adult bridesmaids, we have a selection of over fifty colours to choose from. We can arrange to post out swatches to you for you to colour match with the bridesmaids, flowers etc.
The Jemima dress (above) is our most popular dress – layers of tulle for a magical look and choice of silk sash colour included in the price – from £159. To see all our dress styles and page boy outfits, visit our Wedding Section
The process of ordering is easy – we need at least eight weeks before the required date to make the patterns and add to our production schedule. If online, order the style you like and if you are confident that the children are a standard size, go with their age for the size. Our clothing is pretty standard on sizing. If, however, you have a super skinny one and a very tall one, then it is best to provide us with their measurements and we can make them so they fit perfectly on the day. If you want to do this, just order as usual and follow up with an email saying that you would like to give us measurements. We will then ask to contact the mums and ask for the key measurements we require. Naomi, our pattern maker will then compare their measurements with our patterns and adjust accordingly. There is no extra charge for this. It’s as simple as that!
Our silk George shorts (£79) and matching cummerbund (£33) with either our silk peter pan shirt (£69) or pure cotton peter pan shirt (£49) is our most popular page boy outfit
If you come to the showroom ( by appointment only), situated in the village of Five ashes, nr Mayfield, E. Sussex, Sue will take measurements for each dress or page boy oufit, help with choosing the sash colour and advise on any other matter. Sue is always patient and helpful and will make it as enjoyable as possible for both the girls and boys (boys generally aren’t so keen!!)
Our bespoke service allows you to create your own vision. Some of our brides have seen a sleeve shape they like or a lace trim they would like to add or maybe a sash in a favourite Liberty print. All this is possible as we can source new fabrics and make the pattern especially for you. Prices for this service vary according to the fabrics required and man hours to create it. But wherever possible, we try to keep the cost in line with our other styles.
