3 FUN IDEAS FOR KIDS AT WEDDINGS

Earlier this week Sarah shared her own ideas and inspiration for keeping the kids happy (and stylish!) at your wedding this summer, check out her Kids Rock Weddings shoot over here.  Today we’re building on that with some of our favourite kids activitiy ideas from BLOVED Edit Member Wedding in a Teacup.  From fairy wings to doodle placemats, they’ve thought of everything (and if the little kids don’t enjoy them we know the big kids will!)

Wedding in a Teacup owner, Hester Lear, shares her ideas…

What’s your top tip for keeping the kids entertained? Have a separate kids’ table and bribe the oldest ones to be in charge – they’ll all have a ball. If it’s summer and you have a nice stretch of ground outside, ask responsible, creative, older kids to run a treasure hunt, organise giant garden games, maybe even apply face paints! Award prizes – inexpensive but brightly wrapped.

And during the cocktail or drinks hour? A trunk of dressing up clothes is always a hit with children (ask friends and family to donate them or make them). Pirates and princesses never fail, and it will all add to the magical joy of your day… If your budget is able to stretch and you are looking at ways of entertaining a large number of children why not consider hiring a balloon artist or clown – the adults will love it too, and not only because their kids are
entertained.

What about during the speeches? Use colouring-in place mat kits and bright wax crayon sets on their tables, make your youngest guests feel special, not just tolerated, and they’re more likely to behave like little angels!

As creative director of Sweetpea PR I spend my days securing press coverage for some of the UK's leading luxury bridal brands, being obsessed with all things wedding related and pretty, setting up Sweetpea with my twin sister was a dream come true! In my spare time I have another great love in my life, my little boy Albie. His arrival a year ago spurred on a whole new interest and my daily Instagram and Pinterest feed is now more likely to be filled with baby style inspiration and nursery decor! I am never happier than when scouring the internet for cute clothing finds and gaining inspiration for the next event I am planning!
