Wedding Planning? When to organise the Flower Girls and Page Boys!

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 Wedding Section  or visit 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 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 offer a guide to the mesurements we need on our Size Guide page. 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!
