For cosy or casual wedding parties, it's hard to enforce a no-children rule, especially when your guests find it difficult to engage babysitters or have nowhere else to drop off their kids.
Don't fret, it's still possible for a child-friendly wedding without the slightest of a tantrum. All you need is some prior planning.
Here are 5 impossibly fun ideas to let kids have fun and be a part of your wedding while their parents let their hair down and enjoy the party all night long!
1. Bubbly Time for the aisle march-in
Blowing bubbles is fun for children of all ages! It creates minimal mess (quite unlike confetti) and the best part is - you get to walk down the aisle with some bubbly special effects in the background which might actually turn out magical in your wedding photos!
2. Make it possible for some Lego Fun
Get your kids' imaginations to go wild and far with some loose Lego bricks! Task them to build objects related to the wedding, "How about a big pretty mansion for Aunty Sarah?" and they'll be more than happy to oblige.
3. Let Love Glow
Children are always so fascinated by glow sticks. Have them go "glow" crazy with different colours to choose from!
Oh yes, glow sticks swung at high speed looks amazing in photos too!
4. Introduce a Colouring Contest
Fuel up children's competitiveness with an exciting colouring contest, with the winner announced at the end of the wedding with a special gift to bring home!
Get meaningfully illustrated colouring cards that'll give children a sense of purpose for filling them in with colours, "This would be Uncle Toby and Aunty Sarah when they are seventy years old. Colour them a masterpiece to keep forever."
5. Turn Young Troopers into Budding Photographers
If you've got budget to spare, disposable cameras would be a marvellous idea.
For kids that can't stay put at the tables, allow them to roam about with a mission so they don't get up to no good.
Besides, it'll be interesting to see how the wedding progresses from the perspective of children!
