My brother is getting married in October and we have nothing to put on 8 month old DS. Others are wearing black suits. Dark red is the dress color. Where do I find something dressy/like this for a babe?

Janie and Jack has some cute wedding gear for little ones. I love the pinstripe pants and vest with a white shirt! If you could find a newsboy cap to go with it... OMGosh would that be cute!
Ebay could be a good place to find baby suits if you wanna go that route!
Amazon has a full suit in a 12 month size for $45... Comes with a red tie!
too bad this is brown and not black
how do you feel about a silver vest?

We are living parallel lives - SIL is getting married in October and DS will be 8 months, and we also have no clue what he is wearing at this point....Ill be interested in others suggestions!

You could try Baby Depot for some reasonably priced fancy stuff. I got DS a little suit set at thrift store. Honestly,you could just put him in very nice plain stuff- nice sweater, plain shirt, no characters/animals, and he would look very cute.

You might try here
or Strasburg Children when they get more winter stuff
Christmas lines with black and red will come out soon too
Personally, I could never stand to put my baby boys in suits. DS1 just got his first suit when he was a ring bearer this summer. But you should be able to find a black suit anywhere from JCPenney to Janie and Jack.
Is he IN the wedding somehow? If not, I don't think he really needs to match with the colors.

My DS was 12 months for my sister's black-tie wedding. He wore cute velour black overalls (in a 6-12 month size) that I still have and would be happy to lend you! He wore a white long-sleeve onsie underneath and he was adorable and most importantly he was comfortable (I was afraid anything fancier would be so uncomfortable for him!)
PM me and I'm happy to e-mail you a photo and send you the overalls if you're interested.

That Dapperlads site is so stinking cute. I love the look of those ring barer knickers. I think they look uncomfortable though.
Thanks for the offer of the overalls. I had not thought of that and I have a pair of those put away from HA for him for Christmas. Hmmmm. I'll have to try them on him.

DS was nine months old when we took him to DH's cousin's wedding. I found him a suit at a consignment sale for $8. It consisted of button-down dress shirt, pinstripe slacks and matching vest. The shirt collar was pretty big, so he looked, um, fly.
I'm sure you can easily find a baby suit, if you choose to go that route, on Ebay or any thrift/consignment store. Most of the time, kids only wear the outfit once, so it's in pristine condition.
