  • Turns out your smallest guests may be the most difficult to please. If you are hosting little ones at your wedding, check out these ideas for keeping them entertained and happy.

    Offer Appropriate Food

    Sure, some kids love fancy foie gras and filet mignon – but for more little ones, chicken fingers and mac and cheese will do just fine! Make sure you provide some kid-friendly options for cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert (though we think most sweets will be perfectly acceptable for kids’ palates!).

    Give Them Jobs

    Whether they’re the flower girl or ring bearer or handing out programs, kids feel important when they have a job to do. Even if it’s something as small as holding your bouquet during the first dance, little ones will feel so special and be more likely to behave themselves if focused on the task at hand.

    Provide Hula Hoops

    If your venue has a large outdoor space and you’re hosting a fairly casual affair, offer activities for your youngest guests. When providing games like hula hoops or bubbles, just make sure there are enough for all the kids so no one feels left out!

    Photo by Cramer Photo

    Play Corn Hole

    Corn hole is another fun games that guests young and old will enjoy. We also love that you can decorate the corn hole board in your own wedding colors and style!

    Have a Piñata

    Who doesn’t love a piñata? Of course, the kids will flip, but adults will also love the touch of nostalgia.

    Photo by Nelly - Photographer

    Create a Cute Kids Table

    Kids may have difficulty sitting at their table for long stretches but if you provide them with activities like coloring books or small games, they’ll at least be occupied.

    Photo by Maiko Media

    Try “I Spy”

    Another activity for kids’ place settings – an “I Spy”-style game that encourages little ones (or those of any age) to look for various items around the wedding – from the mother-of-the-bride crying to a sparkly diamond. The one who finds all of the items first can win a prize – nothing like a little friendly competition!

    Photos (from left) by Julius Photography, Rachel Robertson Photography

    Have a Photo Booth

    Kids will not only love posing for silly portraits, but trying on different props and costumes is an activity in itself.

    Photo by Pasha Belman

    Think About Your Music Selection

    No, we’re not suggesting that you play “Old MacDonald” or “The Wheels on the Bus,” but lively Top 40 music appeals to younger people, who are often the biggest hits on the dance floor!

    Photo by Ian Grant Photography  

    One Word = Candy

    While their parents might not be a fan of the resulting sugar high, one thing is clear – kids love candy. As much as a wedding is already a pretty magical event, offering up candy will make it even more amazing for children!

    With its rich texture and deep, bold hues, this centerpiece is the perfect addition to your autumn wedding tablescape!

    Ingredients:

    Vase of your choice Ranunculus Dahlias Pansies Coleus Waterproof Floral Tape  Scissors

    Step 2: Outline the perimeter of the vase with the coleus.

    Step 3: Add the dahlias.  Make certain you add them in all around so they will be seen from all angles.

    Step 4: Add the ranunculus.

    Step 5: Add the pansies and you are all done!

    Monogram It

    Adding your monogram to your dance floor in the color of your choice makes it uniquely personal – and definitely has a wow factor!
