A lot of planning goes into making a wedding happen, and let’s face it- as a bride, you want everyone to enjoy your special day. In which case, it’s important to keep all of your guests in mind when planning your big day. As a sister of four younger siblings, I’ve experienced firsthand how eventful occasions, such as weddings, can be with little ones. Children can quickly become restless and uninterested during a long ceremony or reception. So when it comes to planning a wedding, it’s important to include something fun for everyone! Of course your special day is all about you; however, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to plan something for the kids in attendance to do. Check out these fun ideas that your little guests are sure to love.

Arranging games for the little ones is a great way to provide entertainment. Kids of all ages won’t be able to resist lawn games like tic tac toe and ring toss, or activities like “I Spy.” Having activities set up in an “adult free zone” or at the kids table is a great way to ensure that all of the children and parents enjoy themselves.

Setting up crafts for the kids at your wedding is a creative way to help them have a little fun on your special day. Providing activity books, interactive placemats, or simply encouraging the children to make a card for you and your spouse is a nice way to help keep the kiddos entertained during the festivities.

Another fun idea for your younger guests is to provide disposable cameras for them. The older children will definitely be entertained by snapping photos of themselves and other guests. For an exciting touch, add a photo booth with silly props. Parents and kids alike would certainly enjoy this.

 

Incorporating any of these ideas into your special day is a sure way to guarantee that being at “the kids table” is no longer a bad thing. There are so many creative and cost efficient ways to ensure that even the smallest of guests are having a fun time. After all, your wedding should be a joyful day for everyone in attendance.
