Have you considered hiring someone to entertain them during the wedding?  You could break them into two groups (the younger kids and the older) and hire two babysitters for a few hours to do age appropiate things with them.  Two nannies for four hours should be about $200.00!

Def consider finding a babysitter who can look after them. If you are having your wedding at a hotel or a venue which has additional rooms you can use then make it into a “play room” with a video console system (PS3 or Wii?), or a tv with videos, toys, an arts and crafts table.

Kids craft table during cocktail hour is always a big hig. I am still getting praises for ours. We just had a big box brought out with the table that was filled with jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, crayons, and crafts to make little frames. During the reception we provided more coloring books and disposable cameras for the older kids to play with or play I Spy. None of them played I Spy though 🙁 But they had fun snapping away with those cameras.

At my sister’s wedding, she had a candy bar, and the kids went crazy for it. Also she had those glow sticks that are bendable and the kids used them as necklaces and bracelets. Came in handy bc the kids were easier to spot in the dim lighting. =)
