We often forget about the men when it comes to planning our big day, but one little man that should not be forgotten is your page boy. Have you a page boy who needs to be decked out? If so, we have put together some fun and quirky ideas for suiting up your little man.
There are lots of ways that you can have your page boy looking smart but still looking like a little boy. Lots of modern weddings have a page boy dressed in a preppy, modern style.

Instead of the traditional black shoes a pair of brown brogues with funky colored laces can add a nice touch. This preppy style is very modern and keeps little boys looking like little boys and not mini men. Even better, these are all perfect as separates, so your page boy will get plenty of wear out of his outfit after the big day.
Smart-casual is a great way to go when dressing your pageboy for a summer do. Light linen style suits in soft pastel and neutral colours, topped off by a straw sun hat and a pair of authentic sandal style shoes. This casual style is beautiful for an outdoor wedding or a wedding abroad. Again this style can be worn as separates and so will also be perfect for after the big day.
