Good morning lovelies —
So one thing I noticed while attending my cousin’s wedding in Scotland was that attending a wedding with children can be super fun but comes with it’s own set of challenges to say the least. My nephews are both under the age of three and my niece has just turned one. Of course they charmed absolutely everyone they came across but it also got me thinking about how you keep those little kiddos entertained for what can be a really, really long day for them (and their parents!). My cousin, the bride, had ensured there were little packages of bubbles at every kids’ seat and I thought this was so cute and kept my nephew entertained – and quiet – during all of the speeches. What a fab idea.
So with this in mind, I got inspired to do some research for not only providing entertainment for the children attending your wedding but also how you can make it pretty. Because of course we love pretty things – and this is also another wonderful opportunity to add another lovely decor element. There really is a range of things you can do depending on your budget – from creating a dedicated table or area to making little activity books to lawn games that keep little boys and girls playing for hours and hours (and are also secretly quite fun for the adults too!). Here are some of favourite ideas I came across that I loved, I hope they give you a little inspiration!
