The Best Ring Bearer Outfits for a Summer Wedding
White, pale blue, khaki, linen, seersucker—those are the shades and fabrics that are always in style for a summer ring bearer. Although you can never go wrong asking your ring bearer to wear a suit, that's not your only option. You can also dress your young attendant in shorts and suspenders or a dress pants a short-sleeved button down. The important thing to remember is that this little guy needs to be comfortable. When the temps are high and the sun is shining, it's important to dress your ring bearer in something light and breathable—and preferably with layers.
Here, we've pulled together a selection of our favorite summer ring bearer outfits. Best of all, we found attire options that work for many different wedding styles and venues. If you're hosting a semi-formal daytime wedding, especially one that's on the water, try Brooks Brothers' seersucker suit. For young ring bearers, a suspenders-and-shorts set, like Florence Eiseman's, will have him adorably stealing the show. (There's also a matching pale blue dress for little girls, so your ring bearer and flower girl can be perfectly coordinated.) White or pale blue suits, which won't get quite so hot in the sun, are great choices for more laid-back celebrations.
Hosting a formal event? Don't worry: Darker colors still work, but are best used when the fabric is lighter. J.Crew's navy suit, in a breathable stretch cotton, is a great choice for a more formal party. If you're open to the idea of something a bit less traditional, look to Boden's overall set, or the striped option from Pili Carrera.
