The much debated question whether or not to invite children to your wedding is forever prevalent. Whether you’re in the ‘aw, they’re so cute’ camp – or more the ‘keep-‘em-away-from-my-DRESS!’ variety, the chances are there maybe some kids at your wedding and whether they’re nieces, nephews, cousins or your own children, it’s generally a good idea to include in your plans some ideas to keep them (- and thereby everyone) happy during your ceremony and reception.
Incorporating yet more into your plans needn’t result in adding much more to the bottom line of your wedding budget, as ideas stretch from the cheap and cheerful to the full-on every kids cinderella dream.
Here’s some top tips for you to consider to prevent a Lord of the Flies situation at your wedding!
Help Parents Plan
If you have kids yourself, you’ll know how important it is to schedule in naps, regular feeding and time for ‘letting off-steam’. Kids don’t always go with the flow, no matter how fine-tuned your plans are for your wedding day: Your smaller guests won’t obligingly go along with the hour long photo call if certain requirements of their own aren’t met. With this in mind, it’s best to give parents an overview of the days plans, so that they can work out the best way to manage their kids needs - and not upstage your day when lunch isn’t served as expected.
