Entertaining Children At Your Wedding

Entertaining children at your wedding is something that should cross your mind if you have invited some of the smaller members of our population to your big day. If it is carefully thought out, could help to make the day as enjoyable as possible for the younger members of your bridal party; minimising disruption through boredom!

You could think about hiring seperate entertainment for them if your budget is a big one, but if you are on a tighter budget, then something as simple as a well co-ordinated party bag could be just the thing you need.

Wedding Party Bags For Children – Content Ideas

You could consider giving children colouring pencils and paper for drawing purposes.

Bottles of bubbles, which whilst providing entertainment, also double up as a wonderful prop for your wedding photos.

A disposable camera or even two(one for the child guest to keep and one to be returned to yourselves)

Travel sized board games.

Party poppers or confetti cones.

Alternative Entertainment For Children On Your Wedding Day

If you do want to go down the route of providing physical entertainment on your wedding day for the children, you have a wide variety of options to choose from; from balloon modellers, to magicians and clowns and much more.

Some even hire in care staff to attend to little ones so that the Mums and Dads can enjoy the Wedding too – but if this is an option, do bear in mind that not everyone might be comfortable with strangers caring for their children, even if they are only in the next room.
Another option here is to rope in your friends who are attending with children to “share” childcare.

And last but not least, you may want children to be at the very heart of your wedding – celebrating love and families. If they are involved enough, there may be no need for extra entertainment, but it is definitely worth considering in all cases.
Think about ways in which you can make the children feel a part of your big day.
