My wedding is a little more than a month away, we have almost all the RSVP’s back. So far our guest count is
Kids(5-15 yrs old):18
Kids in booster chairs(toddlers): 7
Kids in highchairs(infants): 4
We have A LOT of kids coming,I invited them all, we have very big families that are all coming from oot, and they all have kids. No one would of been able to come if they didn’t bring their kids for the weekend. I also work as a nanny, so I have a love for kids. I’ve been debating on having a seperate kids table for them to play at. (they would sit with parents during dinner, but could ownder over to the kids table to draw/play). Or I was thinking of sitting some crayons at each table that had kids sitting at it.
My question is, if you had a kids table, did they actually stay there? We won’t be having a babysitter to watch them. And I just can’t imagine kids staying away from their parents all night, I would think they would just run around with their parents and dance???

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.
