Hyland, President of Pegeen®.com
and its head designer, has been walking down the aisle with brides since
1982. She says one trend, due to the current economic environment, is
to reduce wedding expenses. And, unfortunately, in some of the wrong
"Many couples and families in today's environment find it necessary to cut
wedding expenses," says Hyland. "One way NOT to do so is by
eliminating the children who have traditionally been an important focus as
part of the wedding party. At Pegeen®.com,
we work with brides almost every day of every year and they soon realize
that excluding children would be a mistake, at least until all other
necessary cost-saving changes have been made."
just a few reasons why:
Throughout history, children have participated in wedding
parties as part of both immediate and extended families. As early as
Roman times, young girls attending the bride and groom carried herbs and
wheat as symbols of prosperity and fertility. The participation of
children has come to be expected in today's ceremonies. Their presence
lends not only a traditional flair to the nuptials but also complements
those in attendance of the betrothed who gather for one of life's most
With so many blended families today, having children actively
participate in the ceremony helps cement ties between multiple families
establishing new familial relationships as a result of the new union.
Having a child as one of the attendants, when the relationship
to the wedding party is appropriate, can actually help cut costs due to a
lesser expense than that of an adult attendant. In addition, the
younger attendant can help guide and monitor the flower girls, ring bearers,
etc. before and during the ceremony. This is now a popular trend in
certain areas of Europe and we're beginning to see it in the U.S. for the
After almost 30 years in the fashion business, designing made-to-order
formal wear for babies and children for weddings, religious events,
cotillions, and other special occasions, there's not much Hyland hasn't been
asked. And little about which she hasn't provided sound advice for
small, large, destination, theme, very formal, and more casual weddings of
all sizes, in all 50 states and in many areas of Europe.
Some of the most helpful of that advice is that children should be dressed
in age appropriate attire and not as "little adults." Pegeen®.com
has hundreds of styles and colors from which to choose for babies and
children of all sizes and both genders, and the fabrics can be selected and
purchased to match or complement the rest of the bridal party, at a very
most popular styles begin at only $150 (a couture line is also available),
while the quality, workmanship and fit are exceptional AND GUARANTEED.
This is why so much of Hyland's business has always been from referrals
since these high quality services are virtually impossible to find at these
prices. Just as importantly, Pegeen®.com
makes it easy to create appropriate attire for plus size or other
hard-to-fit children at very reasonable costs which can be almost
impossible as many brides, sadly, have learned.
But that's the success behind Pegeen®.com
where wedding planners, brides, and other wedding participants can shop
online, 24-7, and talk by phone or chat online with Hyland almost any day of
