Child's Play -- Kids at the wedding

If you are including children at your wedding and reception, just a little bit of advance planning can assure that everyone enjoys the day!

Kids love celebrations, but they are easily bored. Some of the most popular items in my wedding coordinator's emergency kit are sticker books. Providing just a small (quiet) distraction for the kids goes a long way to keeping them occupied during the ceremony.

A kid's table or activities for kids can make the reception as much a party for the younger set as it is for the adults, or consider hiring a clown or balloon artist to provide entertainment in a separate room. One bride hired several teenagers to be "counselors" at "Camp Wed", and provided a whole evening of activities for the kids.

Have you done something fun to entertain the younger crowd during your wedding and reception? I'd love to hear about it!
