Review: Marks and Spencer Children's Wedding Day Style

Sponsored Post

With a family wedding coming up in May I was very glad to be offered a chance to try an outfit from Marks and Spencer's Children's Wedding Range. My daughter is going to be a bridesmaid so it was my son that was going to need an outfit. We last bought him a jacket from Marks back when he was 3 1/2 for his great grandfather's funeral:

I knew how well suited he was to a good jacket so asked if we could review a Jacket, Shirt and Tie combo (currently from £20) with matching Trousers (currently from £9.60). He is a very tall 7 so we got both in a size 9-10. When they arrived my mum and I were impressed with the quality and the little details such as the matching fake handkerchief in the breast pocket:

My son isn't too happy with the thought of a flowery tie but he did like the handkerchief. I have told him we can have a look at an alternative. So now I just had to persuade bribe him to pose for photographs...

One purchased Skylander later I finally pinned him down long enough to get into the suit and agree to briefly be a model:

He did even manage a smile and dimples to show that he does like the suit really! The tie was loose as he wouldn't stay still long enough for me to put the velcro tight enough:

As you can see it has all the details a man's suit would have and I hope you agree he looked rather smart in it. Just to prove it didn't inhibit his movements he shot off show that the photo shoot was over:



I have to say I am very pleased with his suit and just hope he doesn't grow too much in next 2 months so that it still fits him so well!


We're going on an adventure

  1. That's a very good suit! He looks rather like the lead singer of a 90s indie band in the middle photo!
