Placing Guests With Kids At Your Wedding Reception

While you can look forward to planning a wedding reception your adult guests love, you may have a harder time figuring out what to do with the youngest guests at your wedding. Your seating chart can help you tend to families in attendance. Keeping kids too far apart can lead to them feeling restless, and eager to look for playmates during your event. When you keep them closer together, and provide a table for their entertainment, you can improve their experience, and the experience of their parents. Texas Old Town offers venue spaces of varying size, so you can find the right room to welcome everyone at your wedding!

Should I Keep Everyone With Kids In The Same Area?

One problem with lumping all families together is that your guests with kids may have little else in common. They can also be eager to catch up with other guests who do not have children with them. As a compromise, look for an arrangement that keeps kids near each other, without trying to deposit everyone in one area. Mixing in some adults, and adult tables, can also make it easier to make sure all of your tables are fully occupied.

Making Arrangements To Keep Kids Entertained During Your Reception

A special table for kids that offers games, puzzles, and coloring books can be a big hit. You can use this area to keep young guests occupied. With a designated chaperone at the area, you can also give parents an opportunity to sneak away and enjoy some time on the dance floor together.

What Else Can You Do To Make The Most Of Your Reception Event?

With the right details, you can make sure everyone has a terrific time at your wedding. Start by thinking about the space itself – your seating arrangements can keep friends and family members close, and introduce guests you expect to get along well. Your reception meal, along with your bar service, can also satisfy. One thing you can do to keep your guests happy during the reception can actually take place before the event itself. If you are worried about the length of time between your ceremony and dinner, set up a cocktail hour that gives people something to snack on. This can keep people’s spirits up, and avoid any impatience while people wait for their meals to be served.
