It’s A Formal Affair: Getting The Family Dressed For A Special Occassion

When you have a special occasion coming up, you can often dread getting ready for it. Because sometimes, the idea of getting ready for a big event when you have the entire family to think about, can be quite chaotic. But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, you can make it all feel so much easier to manage, just by thinking about things differently. Because dressing for occasions can be a lot of fun. You just have to approach it from a different angle. So if you want to make sure that you can all get dressed up for that special occasion you have coming up, without the hassle, here’s what you need to do.




First of all, you’re going to want to work on what you’re going to wear. For this, you’re going to want to keep a few tricks up your sleeve, and they should relate to the things you like to wear. It’s handy to know what style of dresses suit you the most. Do you like short or long? Fitted or flowing? When you know exactly what style of dress suits your body shape the most, as well as colors, then you’re going to find it much easier to shop for a dress when the occasion strikes.




When it comes to helping your husband find the right kind of formal wear for a special occasion, it could drive you insane. Because you often know that he’s not going to be happy with anything you pick out. So try to figure out the kind of styles he likes. Whether it’s something classic with loop shirt stays or a modern version, getting to know the suit styles he feels most comfortable in will help you here. And when all else fails, you should also think about having a backup suit in the wardrobe, just in case.


Your Daughter


Then you’ve got your little ones to think about. When it comes to girls, they can be quite easy to dress. Depending on her age, you’re likely to be able to find your daughter a sweet formal dress that will cover off everything from weddings to big birthday parties. Of course, you will need to buy more when they grow out of them, so maybe buy when the occasion calls for it, so you don’t have wasted dresses hanging in her closet.


Your Son


For your son, you may be able to be a bit more creative. Sometimes, cute boys formal wear can be quite casual. With a sweet shirt, pair of slacks, and a bow-tie, you will have the look down. And many of these pieces can be reworn daily and styled in a more casual fashion. So they tend to be a bit easier to dress.


Your Parents


If you have your elderly parents living with you too, you might need to help them out. Thankfully for us all, you may be able to do something similar as you did for your husband here, and that’s to have one set ‘formal outfit’ for them that they will feel comfortable in and want to wear when they have something special coming up.
