children at weddings kids table

If you’re having children at your wedding, you might want to consider a designated kids’ table, complete with babysitter. (Read this if you’re considering not having children at your wedding).

It doesn’t have to cost a bundle to keep the little gaphers entertained. Some ideas include:

  • Play Do
  • Bubbles
  • Crayons and coloring pages
  • Simple (non-messy) crafts
  • Beading
  • Make a monster or robot
  • There’s also the option of having a DVD player with a kids movie, complete with popcorn.

Here are a few photos to inspire you.

    These are such great ideas! I love that you included a link to the "flip side" of the topic!

    Kids/no kids? I think that the only right answer is whatever the bride and groom want. It's their day, after all.

    ...sorry this comment wound up on another post the first time around. ((shrugging shoulders))

    Wow, great ideas! One suggestion: If the children are too small, don't have beads there. Before you know, there would be one kid who has swallowed a bead or two, had one stuck up his nose, or in his ear. Lol.

    Excellent point Tammy. I suppose that goes for anything small that kids can put in their mouths!
