How to entertain Children at your Wedding - Your wedding day is fast approaching, you have everything organised and you are fully confident that you and your partner and all your guests will be happy and smiling throughout your joyous day. But have you thought about your little guests, sometimes weddings can be quite boring for the children, well until the music turns on and they all turn into mini Elvis Presleys. Underneath are a few tips on how to keep your little guests entertained.
Tip 1 - Your little guests will get bored sitting at a table full of grown ups having conversations. So make them feel as important and set up their own kids table. Have the table covered in crayons, drawing books, arts and crafts (nothing too messy). This will keep them amused for hours on end, and will give their parents a nice break as well.
Tip 2 - This is a great way to give the kids something to do. A simple game of I Spy with a disposable camera. They could work in teams or on their own and be kept amused for hours. Also just think of the very funny and amusing photos which they will capture.
A wedding day through the eyes of a child, now that is priceless !
Tip 3 - Hire a Children's entertainer - Add a touch of humour to your wedding day by entertaining your guests with a clown or magician. They could include the children in loads of games and keep them fascinated as they pull rabbits out of hats and make monkeys out of balloons. You will all be laughing at at your very own comedy show.
Tip 4 - Bring childhood games into an extra large version. Giant games are really popular at the minute. Yes, most people use them outdoors but there is no reason why you can’t have them indoors either. Giant Jenga, giant Connect 4 and Giant Snakes & Ladders are just a few giant games which you could have !
Tip 5 - Make your wedding day really stand out with a Mini Crazy Golf Course. The young guests will be entertained for hours on end and the adults can also get involved and have a mini golf tournament. You never know, you could have the next golf pro in your midst !
Tip 6 - A new trend which is occurring more and more on the wedding scene is the release of an object or an animal. Doves, fire lanterns and messages in a bottle are the most common. How about a large balloon release. Give each of your guests a balloon which they can write a message on. It could be a message to the newly married couple, or a personal message. Once everyone has done this let all your young guests collect the balloons and release them into the sky. It is truly a beautiful sight !
Final Tip - Overall, just enjoy your day. Take every moment in, laugh when you need to laugh, cry when you need to cry and love always. This is you and your partners day, it will be perfect and everybody else will see that !
I hope these tips on how to entertain your younger guests at your wedding has helped with your planning and good luck with the rest of your journey.
