We love kids! But we also know having to worry about keeping them busy during a wedding (and not having your special moment interrupted!) can be a bit stressful. And think about it from their perspective: it’s a bunch of adult stuff, and then they get cake. But don’t worry! There are so many ways to get the little ones to feel like this is a fun night for them too, from bubbles, to crayons, to fun desserts!
Here are a few kid-friendly wedding ideas that we’ve put together in order for you to keep them entertained at your wedding while also incorporating them into the festivities!
A cute kids table with crayons for each child will keep them at the table and not running around the entire venue. Make it kid-friendly and fun by drawing on a chalkboard so they know where to go!
When the kids get tired of coloring and want to move around, keep them busy all night by giving them a task to photograph the entire night! Provide a disposable camera and a list of subjects/ moments for them to capture. A photo-scavenger hunt can keep them entertained for hours!
During the toast, give kids some milk (in fancy glasses of course) and cookies so they can partake in their own way!
You may love your Grand Marinier-Soaked Citrus cake, but an elegant wedding cake might not be as kid-friendly as these fun cake pops. They are easy to eat and will not get all over their clothing or face–or at least not as much! For a cute twist, try using striped paper straws instead of plain wooden sticks.
After dinner, have a kids corner of the wedding that they can have their own space to play in. Add fun games to the area, toys or even bubbles to keep them occupied.
Giving kids their own space will keep them away from getting in trouble while also giving the adults a peace of mind that their kids are being occupied. It will make them feel special to have their own private area!
