Including Little Ones in your Big Day? We all love those adorable Flower Girls and handsome Ring Bearers as they walk (or run) down the aisle, stealing the show - momentarily of course! We know that it can be tough keeping kids occupied and interested during a long day, such as wedding, so we have compiled a list of 3 Tips to keep them entertained.
1. Give Them a Job, and Remind Them How Important it is. Depending on their age, kids LOVE to know that they are important, and letting them know how much they are helping make your Big Day possible will make them feel more than special. We recommend letting the Ring Bearer hang onto the ring box or pillow (minus the rings) so he knows he cannot forget his task for the day. Same with Flower Girls - keep them involved in any way that you can. It always makes for an adorable photo with her standing in your heels, staring up at your gown. HINT: A GREAT gift for one day down the road on her wedding day!
2. Provide Supplies. Colouring books and crayons are a great start for all of the kiddos in attendance. There are adorable FREE printable options available on Lovely Indeed that will surely keep them interested. In addition, creating little Gift Bags for them filled with Mini-Games or Toys that they love will be a huge help.
3. Set Up A Games Area. Venue permitting, there may be a space available that you can fill with simplistic games that the kids can enjoy, and the parents can oversee. If your budget does allow, some couples are choosing to hire in Professional Child Care, to watch over the kids so the parents can enjoy their evening as well.
Kids will be kids, but providing them with options to keep them entertained throughout the day makes everyones lives a little easier.
