When hosting a wedding the bride and groom have the option to have a kid-free wedding or a kid-friendly wedding. Since there is a need for a ring bear and flower girl, most brides and grooms opt for a kid-friendly wedding. With this factor in mind, listed below is our wedding entrainment for kid’s suggestions:
-Supply a kid-friendly meal
Most children are known to picky eaters; therefore; it comes as no surprise that they are unwilling to eat items such as; seafood, rare meats or exotic fruits and vegetables. In order to keep the kids of your party happy it suggested supplying them with a kid-friendly meal. Consider options such as; chicken nuggets, tacos, pizza, macaroni and cheese, french fries, corn, green beans, strawberries, cake and other sweet offerings. Your young guests should be served foods that are fun and can be eating with their hands. For those who are looking to “go all out” offer the kids of your children wedding entertainer a dessert bar full of various snacks, treats and candies for topping ice cream. read more about Wedding Entertainment for Kids
-Offer fun favors
Another way to keep the kids at your wedding occupied is to offer them fun favors. Suggested favors include items such as; coloring books and crayons, miniature games and jigsaw puzzles and or small toys like race cars and Barbie dolls. Provided you have the room, another suggestion is to dedicate an area for kids only; a “kid’s only zone” where they are supervised by their favorite family member/friend and are offered the opportunity to play video games, and or, watch movies while snacking on popcorn and soda pop.
-Give them responsibilities
By providing young children with responsibilities you can distract them from wanting to “goof off” or “act up.” Suggested responsibilities include; blowing bubbles or throwing rice on the bride and groom as they leave their ceremony, providing them with disposable cameras for capture their favorite moments or ask them to hand out wedding programs, party favors or cake.
-Provide reception entertainment
Our final suggestion for wedding entertainment for kids is to provide them with an entertainer. Since it is after all a wedding, we suggest avoiding the use of a clown and instead considering the option of creating a small area for cute, and lovable small animals like puppies and bunnies or hiring a cartoon character such as Sponge Bob or Dora the Explore. While this suggestion may come a bit costly, it will be well worth it in the long run as the kids will be occupied and your wedding, and reception, will go by without any distractions or disruptions.
