Should we invite kids to our wedding?

This is one question that every bride and groom to be should ask themselves as

they plan their wedding and create their guest list.

Most couples already have friends and family members who have children so

this can be a tough decision. Children have a tendency to get bored and fussy

quite easily, something that can turn your wedding into a noisy affair.

If you do decide that you want to include children in your big celebration, you’ll

want to make sure that they’re happy and entertained at all times.

Here are a few fun ideas for keeping those little bodies busy during your

1. Create an epic kids table

Setting up a few kids tables with various activities is one of the best ways to

keep smaller guests busy for hours, especially during the speeches. Add games,

puzzles, activity and coloring books to the tables so that the kids can choose

something that appeals to them. You could also add a few goodie bags to the

table that contain treats, bubbles or a small toy.

2. Include them in the wedding activities

Children really enjoy helping out and being a part of the day’s activities so give

them an important job to do such as handing out pamphlets. If they feel like

they’re helping out, they won’t get a chance to be bored. Another cute idea is to

give each child a disposable camera so they can snap some photos on the day.

3. Let them spend time outdoors

If the weather is warm on the day, set up a few outdoor games such as Jenga or

activities such as hula-hoops. If the children are a little older, you can also set

up a crafts table that they can use to create props for a photo booth or a

wedding memento for their parents.

4. Set up a kids room

If you want to keep children entertained and away from the main festivities, set

up a cool kids room or cave that contains beanbags, tables, movies and

activities that they can enjoy.
