It’s always a privilege to have made it onto the guest list and to be invited to someone else’s wedding to share in the happiness of their special day. While adults will love carefully choosing their wedding guest outfits, getting ready and watching two people they care about entering into a marriage, for young children, a wedding day can seem like a long day.
If you’re currently planning your wedding and want to make sure that it’s fun for the kids too, there are lots of easy ways to ensure that even your youngest wedding guests have a fantastic time.
It’s common for young children to become restless at the wedding breakfast and find it hard to stay still during the speeches. Why not place an activity pack at the place setting for each child on your guest list to keep them entertained. Kids activity packs don’t need to be expensive, simple items such as sticker books, colouring and card games are popular choices to keep little ones amused. It is also possible to buy wedding-themed activity packs online these are great for slightly older kids, and feature activities such as wedding themed word searches, dot to dots, and I spy games.
Photo booths are great entertainment for all ages, and are a great addition to any wedding reception, whether there are kids there or not! Purchasing a photo booth backdrop from a company such as The Backdrop Lab means that your photo booth experience will be a unique one and can match your wedding theme.
Kids will love to spend time posing for pictures in front of the backdrop, and it’s also a great way to grab some fun family photos at the wedding too.
If you would like to give kids some freedom to play at the wedding, then hiring in a specialist mobile wedding creche would be a great idea. A mobile creche comes complete with staff, books, toys and games to keep the children happy. A creche may be useful for keeping kids entertained during the wedding service itself. If you are planning to use a creche service, don’t forget to check that all staff are qualified, insured and have had the relevant checks needed to ensure that they are suitable to work with children.
Garden games are heaps of fun and an excellent way for both the adults and kids to spend time having fun together on the wedding day. Kids will love being outside in the fresh air to let off a little steam and stretch their legs.
From croquet to giant chess, garden games make for perfect natural unstaged photo opportunities to effortlessly capture the happiness of your day.
There are some fantastic children’s entertainers out there that would be great for adding an extra element of fun for kids to your big day. From puppeteers to magicians there are plenty of choices of children’s entertainer available that will wow the kids and keep them thoroughly entertained.
