Keep Children Entertained Within Your Wedding Reception
February 19, 2017
When it comes to weddings, couples often forget that children attend too, and it’s not all about the adults! From toddlers to grandparents, you will have a wide age range of guests attending your big day, and it is important that they all have appropriate entertainment for their ages.
However, how do you go about entertaining little ones in a way that will still be maturely presented within your wedding?
Here at Signature Occasions, we are so honored to plan gorgeous weddings for our couples. That’s why we have gathered some of the top ways that you can entertain children within your big day. If you are curious for some inspiration, be sure to continue reading to learn more:
A table just for kids. Your wedding reception will be full of tables, gorgeous tables with lovely tablecloths and stunning centerpieces. However, will that entertain children? Probably not! Develop a table just for kids, where they can go and sit and be thoroughly entertained. For your kid’s table, you can find or create some wedding color books accompanied by crayons. Also, consider glow sticks, as they are a fun way to encourage the children to light up the dance floor. You can even create the tablecloth to be paper instead of cloth, so that the children can draw right among the table with crayons, markers or colored pencils.
Games. Every kid loves games, so incorporating some into your big day will certainly present wonderful entertainment (even for the adults too)! “I Spy” is an easy game to create that will keep the kids busy. You can have them try and spy items around your wedding, such as the cake or a certain flower. Or, you can even have them find natural happenings, such as someone laughing or holding hands. Some other great games are Giant Jenga or Cornhole. These activities will surely keep the little ones busy.
Photo booth. In addition to the games, which will entertain both kids and adults, you can have a photo booth too! Photo booths are a great source of fun for all ages. Equipped with fun props and backdrops, your little ones can create goofy images to take home and share with friends and family. The props you can include are funny glasses, hats, boas, and even little props on sticks, such as big red lips or mustaches.
Every wedding should be fun, not just for adults, but for the kids too! Here at Signature Occasions, it is our goal to assist you in planning the wedding of your dreams. If you are still searching for a Ridgeland, Mississippi wedding planner, be sure to contact us today for your consultation.
