    It depends on if you are having just “family” or is it more of friends and family.  If it was family then I would do a childrens table for kids 5/6 or older.  If friends and family then no I wouldn’t do one, to many people to much confusion…

    Commenting to come back and see what the poll results are.  I’m wondering this as well for kids in my family.  I’m worried parents will want to sit with their kids but I think it would be great to have all my little cousins get together and be entertained together as they don’t see each other very often.

    idk, who is going to be responsible for looking after them if it’s a table of just kids?  I would prob seat them with their parents

    I think it depends on age. I personally would not trust kids under about 12 to behave by themselves.

    I’m not having one. If all the kids know each other I think a kid’s table is a great idea, otherwise I think it can be awkward. I know that when I was at weddings as kids I was shy and wouldn’t have wanted to leave my parents.

    I went to a wedding where the bride hired a bunch of responsible teenagers to babysit the kids under a certain age. She set up tables in a semi-separated room, had gift bags for all the kids (stuffed animals, activity books, candy, etc.) and the parents could see their kids but didn’t have to deal with them. It was nice for everyone that the kids could come, but weren’t running amok at the wedding reception and their parents could drink and be a little irresponsible.

    I’m going to have a bunch of kids at my wedding (I work with children and have a large family).  My plan is to sit them with their parents during dinner, but during the more casual/dancing time, have a table available with games, parchment paper table cloth with crayons, and candy.  this way, they are still near everyone and their parents can keep an eye on them, but they can still do more kid oriented activities if they are getting a little bored.
