Having children at your wedding?

Having children at your wedding can be exhausting and sometimes unavoidable, so keeping them entertained is an important part of the wedding planning process.

For most weddings children are essential guests for the day… Who better to break the ice and be the first to pull some shapes on the dance floor?

There won’t be a dry eye on site whilst watching your adorable flower girl and page boy trundle down the aisle. And don’t even get me started on little people wearing grown up clothes. Cuteness overload!

Giant Garden Games

At Ever After we have plenty to keep your little tikes entertained, including Giant Jenga, 4 in a row, croquet & our giant deck chair.

We can’t control the weather down here in the sunny south west as much as we wish we could, it’s out of our hands.  Assuming the sun is shining, you and your guests will no doubt spend hours locked into intense moments of tower tumbling madness. It’s the game you don’t even have to be playing to grow those tiny beads of sweat on your forehead.

Rainy Day Drinks Reception Entertainment

Now, not to fill your head with rainy thoughts, but we need to be realistic here.

If the weather doesn’t turn out to be on your side, then why not have a child & adult friendly entertainment station? Boardgames & jigsaws will keep the small ones entertained for hours.

Hungry Hippos, Operation & Guess Who will keep them busy and encourage kids to make friends. They might even find their dance partner in time for when the real fun begins (when the lights go low and the music starts to pump.)

Activity Mat

Another suggestion for an any weather outcome. Children don’t always like the idea of patiently waiting for their food. And they usually aren’t as involved in mingling as we are. So being prepared with something to lock their attention is definitely a clever idea.

This inexpensive activity sheet idea has the potential to pull through your entire wedding theme. You can match these sheets with your invitations or keep things super simple and just print on plain white…
Either way this is a sure way to keep the little ones occupied.

Professional Entertainment

Entertainment may not be budgeted for your big day? But if you want to keep the youngsters occupied then it could be something to consider! Don’t forget that if the kids are happy then so are the parents and they’re more likely to relax and actually enjoy all the little details, that you’ve spent gruelling hours preparing ahead of your big day!

A magician could be the perfect partner? It is exclusive entertainment, but not only for children. It’s versatile with all ages, capturing all your guests attention.
