A smart shirt, tie and a pair of formal trousers normally complete the ensemble with the most important bit being a shiny pair of shoes. This is the usual outfit for most boys attending a wedding, but there is no reason why this should always be the case.
This is brought about by the perception that a boy's suit is an expensive purchase which will only be worn on a couple of occasions. Most people associate the expense of a new boy's suit to be comparable to that of a similar man's garment, but this is no longer the case.
Boy's 4 piece suits, boy's 5 piece formal suits and boy's 5 piece tailcoat suits are now available in the UK for a fraction of the price of an equivalent man's suit. this takes away the problem of cost, when a 5 piece boy's suit can be bought for under £30, and the individual pieces of the suit can be mixed and matched with the boy's other clothes.
With regard to weddings, it's now cost-effective to clothe all of the boy's in the immediate family in smart suits which reflect the nature of the day, and which also stop the need for any arguing about "who's wearing what.." Most weddings these days cost an absolute fortune, so buying ready made suit ensembles helps with the budgeting process and removes one of the imponderables from the "what needs to be done for the wedding" list.
Boy's suits are now available in a wide range of colours, patterns and designs, so finding suitable outfits will not be a problem - Smarten Up and smarten up your boys at the same time! The kids will love it and if they grow out of them quickly, you can always recoup most of your money by re-selling the boy's suits on eBay.
