We have a little over 20 nieces and nephews, plus cousins with kids, so our wedding is going to be very kid friendly.

We’re definitely doing a bounce house/moonwalk thing and having an arts and crafts table for the kids. The entire theme is really kid friendly though, because we’re doing an old timey carnival kind of thing. We’ll have carnival games, yard games, and cake walk, a DJ and a badass candy buffet.

Can I ask a question, what time is your ceremony/reception, meal being served? What’s your intended “end” time? Just curious because I want an evening wedding… and want to invite kids… Thanks!

Mine is going to be at 4 or 5 PM in the afternoon. That way the kids can have a good time, but if they get tired, the parents can take them home without them missing out on anything.

16 out of 54 guests are kids. Were doing ice cream sunday bar for cocktail hour.

We’ll have 4 children at our 23 person wedding. Youngest 2 months, 2 two year olds and a 6 year old.

Because it’s very intimate we won’t have formal entertainment for the kids. But I’ll get some colouring books, crayons and maybe some board games.

@Amndy:  Oh ya we are all just kids inside. We are having lawn games during cocktail hour so if the kids want to play outside they can. We are trying to do colouring books but I am seriously running out of time. For the Out of Town buckets we have a bunch of kid entertainment stuff so they should be set. Ive also requested home made chicken fingers since some kids probably wont eat the lamb or salmon we are serving.

We are having a kid friendly wedding too.  18 kids under the age of 11.  I made each one a gift bag with stickers, coloring/activity book, crayons, bubbles, and a few other little things from the dollar store.  Board games and face painting sounds like fun.  It sounds like you’ve got all the bases covered.  

I love watching kids at weddings.  They always have such a blast dancing around and seem especially joyful.  Hope you have a wonderful wedding!

I immediately thought of a hula hoop contest, although I have no idea whether it would be easy to accumulate enough hula hoops to make that possible.

Well there will be several kids at the wedding and reception and a whole bunch at the day-after pig roast. There is a soft-ball field, volleyball, swing-set and sandboxes plus a friend is bring outdoor kid stuff for the kids to play with.

We are having a very child friendly wedding also.  I’m not doing this but- my cousin’s wedding had a neat touch I hadn’t seen before.  They did a “candy toss”…. Kind of like the bouquet- but was literally just a jar of candy tossed over the bride’s shoulder  and the kids ran around picking it all up.  It was very sweet (in more ways than one πŸ˜‰   )

We had more than a dozen kids, and honestly didn’t do anything. They had access to outside (where we had adult games set up, but they could participate, too), and we had a normal wedding/reception. They were all perfect angels. A new setting and unfamiliar people tend to tame most children.
