how to keep kids entertained at weddings
Keeping children entertained at weddings can be a difficult one. For this reason many couples choose not to have them at a wedding. However, PLANIT weddings believe that the reason why so many people have a bad experience with children at weddings is because there is simple nothing for them to do! This results in them running around and causing mayhem.
Here are some options to allow your wedding to run more smoothly with kids and without the mayhem:
1. Kids Room
Have a separate area or kids friendly room organized to have all the children in. Hire a babysitter or a potential distant family member to mind them for the few hours. The venue may organize separate meals and drinks for them. By giving them their own space for activities they will be kept busy for the duration of the wedding.
2. Get an Entertainer
Get a children entertainer such as a clown, balloon artist or magician. Children love this and will be easily amused for the evening. An entertainer will also keep their attention and allow them to stay in the room and avoid interrupting the wedding.
3. Coloring Activities
Simple colouring activities are a great and affordable way to keep the children occupied. Supply colours, crayons and colouring paper or colouring books to keep them happy.
Bubbles are another fun and affordable way to entertain the children. What child doesn’t like bubbles?? The photographer can take action photos of them blowing bubbles outside. Perfect way to capture the lively moments of your wedding.
5. Disposable Camera
Disposable cameras are another great to entertain the older kids. Give them a little responsibility and get them to capture some snaps of your big day. This is a great way to get unusual photos, which the photographer might miss out on.
