Making Accommodations For Kids At Your Reception

Welcoming families to your wedding can help create a sense of community, and make it easier for couples with kids to attend your special day. One problem you may encounter is that weddings are not exactly planned to keep those young guests entertained. After being patient through your ceremony, kids – particularly younger kids – can be in a more rambunctious mood at the reception. They can also be harder to serve, if you elect to serve a fancier meal during dinner. If you want to welcome kids to your wedding, a little bit of smart planning can go a long way. You can make arrangements to ensure that they have a good time at your reception, and that you and your guests can have a great time, too!

Should I Seat Kids With Their Parents, Or Create A Kids Only Area?

The easiest solution to the question of how and where to seat kids is to put them with their parents. Keeping families closer together in your seating arrangement can ensure that they still have other children to interact with, so they will not feel the need to wander. If you have a smaller number of kids attending, and want to give parents a way to cut loose and enjoy themselves, you can create a kids’ area at the reception. With a designated sitter and some fun activities, this can be a great way to encourage them to enjoy themselves while the adults have their own fun.

Taking Care Of Your Ring Bearer And Flower Girl

Your ring bearer and flower girl can be one of the most adorable parts of your wedding, but you may be unsure of how to receive them at the reception. Unless their parents are also in the wedding party, you do not need to have them at the head table; keeping them with their parents, or having them at a kids’ table will be fine.
