Kids at weddings- How to ensure they have as much fun as the grown ups!

Kids Area

One way to keep kids happy at weddings is to give them their own space. This could be their own "kids table" or a "kids room". Our library could be used as a kids room; you can use our built in screen and projector to play some movies!

Who doesn't love to color?! Coloring keeps kids occupied and they will feel special because only the "cool kids" have coloring books and crayons at their place setting.
Games and Activities

By giving kids options of games and activities you are ensuring that they will be occupied for a few hours. We have room on our back patio for games like corn hole or hopscotch. In the library you could set up a few different board games and whoever wines gets a prize.

Goodie Bags

My favorite part of birthday parties was always the goodie bag because you never knew what type of cool treasures you'd find! For your wedding day you could give kids a goodie bag with snacks, a coloring book, a disposable camera, silly string and more. Give the bags to the kids after the ceremony though because you don't want to be covered in pink silly string during your first kiss ;)!

First Look: To Do It Or Not To Do It?!

You will have more time for pictures.

It could help ease your nerves by
taking away the stress of seeing
each other in front of others.

You can fix your makeup if you cry.

You have more privacy than you would
if guest were around.

You can enjoy cocktail hour because all
of your pictures would be done. AKA
more time to party and have fun with
your friends!

You have to be ready earlier which
means less sleep. But it's your wedding
day, who really sleeps? It's like
Christmas eve as a child!

Some say you might lose that
magical moment of walking
down aisle and seeing each other
for the first time.

Your dress might get dirty
depending where the
pictures are.

It could feel a little staged with
the photographer telling you what
to do and when.

You might have to pay
more to keep your
hair/makeup artist
there longer for touch ups.

Another option we have seen that is kind of a combination of both options is a first touch! You are able to touch each other and talk to each other but you still have that moment of seeing each other for the first time when you walk down the aisle.
