Wedding guests with kids? Not a worry! Rugrats Wedding Services have some great ideas and activities to keep children entertained on your Big Day…

A wedding is a special day for kids too. Do you remember the memories of attending a wedding when you were younger? What an experience it was. Dressing up, meeting new people, having fun, dancing and trying your hardest to be on your best behaviour.

As children we absorb everything we see and do, setting the foundations for life. Including children at your wedding can create memories that last a lifetime. Memories that help the understanding of our culture with the coming together of two families.

Here are some great ways to incorporate the little guests at your wedding:

Garden games are a great way to keep the kids entertained before and after the ceremony while guests await the reception.

There are services you can hire that not only include a great range of giant garden games but also offer a helping hand to supervise during the entertainment.

This gives parents the chance to relax and interact with other guests. Garden games are not only great for the kids, but guests of all ages will find themselves getting involved and having fun.

For a wedding that calls for the children to be a little bit more out of the way, a professional Child Minding service will cater for the care of little wedding guests.

Combining all the guest’s children into the one location is a great way for kids to have fun together and save on service fees.

You just need to find a suitable location or accommodation for kids to hang out, run around and pass out until their parents come to collect them.

These services will often bring along games and activities for the kid’s entertainment and staff according to numbers and ages. Sometimes it’s best left to the professionals.

Because sometimes, it’s a job best left to the professionals.

Depending on the location of your wedding, setting up a game room or crèche is a great idea to keep the kids out of trouble throughout the day. Simple craft tables are fun and easy.

Choose some activities that are great for all ages, not too messy, avoid sharp objects and things that may hurt others if thrown around.

Play dough, racing sets, Lego and board games are usually easy to find and always entertaining. Colouring in is always a winner with all ages, especially with giant books.

Have a TV set up and some movies playing to keep the kids engaged. If you’re struggling to find such items, check out your local op shops. You can walk out with a room full of disposable kids entertainment at a small price.

Incorporating some of these great ideas into your wedding will keep the little ones out of trouble and help bring you peace of mind on the day.

Be sure to set aside some time allocated for this, ensuring a smooth day for you and your guests.
