I think it depends on the overall theme and style of your wedding. While I love some artwork by kids (I have it on my refrigerator, etc. as I am a teacher and they like to make me things), unless it is a really informal wedding, I don’t know that it makes much sense as centerpieces. Now let’s say if you had  a theme of young love, or kids at heart–then yes.

This is a cool way to involve your children in the wedding! I don’t think it has to fit into a theme really. The only thing I would say is that you need to be absolutely sure that you’re willing to accept whatever they make. You wouldn’t want hurt feelings if you elect not to display their work for whatever reason.

supet cute. Hell, if Angelina Jolie can put her kids pictures in her veil, you can have them do the centre pieces.

I’d think it’s a very cute idea in and of itself!  Your children are a huge part of your lives and your marriage. However,  weddings aren’t children’s birthday parties and no dedicated “theme” other than “marriage” is  necessary or IMO relevant.

brendaray2009:  I’d have to see a finished product, but it SOUNDS like a cute idea. You could also put a small note naming the child who did the artwork, etc.

Can it be made in advance? You might not have time to fix them on the day…
