Plus those young precocious cousins makes the best flowers girls and ring bearers. But including such adorableness and even those social media savvy teenager requires some extra touches to your event to ensure that they are entertained. This will allow you to sit back and enjoy the festivities, while making it a bit easier on their parents to do the same. The folks from Chicago's Belvedere Events & Banquets combined their massive knowledge and experience to come up with five simple activities to keep the non-adults happy at a wedding.
Children are easily bored, so you need to give them something to do while the adults are busy mingling and chatting. A wedding themed scavenger hunt is a great way to keep the kids occupied and entertained. Provide a wedding themed list of items (bouquet, white dress, etc) and and give the children disposable cameras to record their finds. This is a fun activity for your younger guests, and will likely result in some fun candid shots to add to your wedding album.
Put together some age appropriate goodie bags for all of your younger guests. These should include games, puzzles, toys, crayons and coloring books. You should also include some healthy snacks as well. Designate a children’s area at the reception, where the kids can go to unpack their wedding goodie bags and play without distracting your other guests. Choose one or two members of your wedding party to act as chaperons so the children have some adult supervision.
