I would sit them with their parents, personally, if they are under 8 or so. Then I think a kids table would be do-able with older children, but a bunch of 4-5 year olds running around to mommy’s table all the time? No thanks!

Only 1 wedding I’ve ever been to had kids seated at their own table, but also they had a clown and crafts and all kinds of stuff going on.

All the other weddings were just kids seated with parents and sometimes a coloring book with crayons is given, but usually not.

I’m going to seat kids with parents but have a side table somewhere with coloring books, wands and crowns, chips and cookies.

We had a kid’s table where they could gather and color but for dinner, they still were sitting with their parents.  I think it worked pretty well – the kid’s table was in the cocktail reception area so it gave them some space to color and play without needing to go into the main dining room and I did see them going back and forth during the remainder of the night to grab toys or play at the table for awhile.

My kids wanted to sit by their parents. But they were 4, so maybe a little too young to sit on their own.

I would think it the kids all knew each other (lcousins/friends) they would stay there for part of the night. If not they might be too shy to stay away from their parents.
