Having kids at weddings can be a wonderful part of the celebrations. But they can also lead to some hard decisions – can they come to the ceremony but not the reception, will only children of a certain age be allowed, will only children of close family members be allowed, will children not be invited to the wedding at all – the list goes on and on.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when planning your wedding:
- If you will have kids at your reception, make sure to serve kid-friendly options (for those under age 12) and provide crayons, paper and other games to keep them occupied. Depending on your budget and venue, having a separate kids’ room with a sitter is a great option.
- If you have a flower girl and ring bearer in your ceremony, they should be invited to the reception. Don’t put the parents in a position where they have to explain to their child that he or she is part of the wedding but can’t come to the party.
- Whether or not you’re inviting kids to your wedding, check in with all the parents that you’re inviting. Call them and let them know whether or not their kids are invited and if they are, what childcare (if any) will be available.
- If you only want a few kids in the wedding, it is okay to just invite children over a certain age, or children in the immediate family. Just be sure all parents are aware of this to avoid any awkwardness later on.
So here’s the good part! Win FREE JEWELRY by sharing your experiences with kids at weddings. Do you think it’s a good idea or a bad idea? Will/did you have kids at your wedding?
