When it comes to planning a wedding, there are plenty of things to think about. Not to mention plenty of big decisions that you need to think carefully about. One of these is the guest list. Choosing who you invite to your wedding and who you don’t not only causes a headache, but also could end up upsetting people. Which really isn’t ideal.
Add into this when you think about kids being invited and you have yourself some pretty impressive stress-inducing things to think about.
Some couples decide that having kids at their wedding is a great idea, but some may think that it is more hassle than it is worth. Especially if they don’t have kids themselves. However, we believe that there is something pretty great about having kids at a wedding, especially if you make sure that they are catered for.
Kids can make the entire day more fun
If there is one thing that goes in kids favour, it is that they are great fun. Kids are not only going to make you smile but once they get on that dance floor at the beginning of the night, everyone is going to be feeling the party vibe and want to get up and join them. Not only this, but they look pretty darn cute in their outfits too.
Some parents may not come if their kids are not invited
When you are considering whether or not to invite children to your wedding, you are going to need to think about how their parents may feel. Some parents are likely to feel offended that their children are not invited, asking what is wrong with them, some may even not be able to secure a day-long babysitter. Which means that they won’t be able to join in the celebrations at all.
Kids really are not that hard to entertain
One thing that you have to remember about having kids at your wedding, is that you can make things a whole lot easier just by making sure that they have something to do. To kids, some of the most important parts of any wedding celebration are “boring bits” which mean that they may end up being loud or disruptive. There are a variety of ways that you can try to keep kids entertained at a wedding, you can make them up packs, you can put some games on the tables, or even better, you can give them their own space to play.
To do this, you need to hire a dedicated mobile wedding creche company. They will come to your wedding and set up a space that your smallest guests can use to blow off some steam and have a pretty awesome time of their own. All whilst their parents spend some time relaxing and enjoying the more grown-up parts of the celebrations.
