A wedding with children is a lot different from a wedding that doesn’t have any children whatsoever. You might want to have a wedding without children if you don’t have many children in your family or you don’t have any yourself.

For those who want children at their wedding, it’s important to know what you need in order to have a successful wedding. Here are a few helpful tips to plan a wedding with children this year.

Pick a suitable wedding venue

Firstly, pick yourself a suitable wedding venue. A wedding venue is a priority for any couple looking to find the perfect place for their marriage. After all, it’s where you say ‘I do’ and celebrate your special day with the rest of your family and friends.

Consider what wedding venues offer when it comes to child-friendly features. You may find that some are a little more adult with the grounds the wedding venue is on or certain aspects of the wedding venue in regards to the interiors.

A wedding venue should be your choice ultimately, but be wary of what you might need to cater to the little ones.

Consider whether you want all children invited

Do you want all the children invited? Just because you’re having children at your wedding, doesn’t mean you need to be open to all guests who have children. It might be that you want to keep it exclusively for your bridal and groom’s party.

It could be simply for family, rather than friends. Whatever wedding venue you do go for, be sure it can accommodate all of the children and their needs.

Hire a children’s entertainer

It’s important to keep your children entertained when attending a wedding. A wedding isn’t the most exciting part of a child’s day, even though it’s a super special day for you! Therefore, it’s good to ensure you’ve covered all bases to keep the kids entertained from morning to night.

One form of entertainment that’s worthwhile spending the money on, is a children’s entertainer. This can be useful to use when the speeches are happening or the ceremony is in session.

Make sure there’s plenty of space available

Be sure to check that the wedding accommodation has plenty of room for the kids to run around in. Whether that’s indoors, outdoors, or both, you want to ensure there’s enough room for the children to burn their energy so that they fall fast asleep as the late night dancing continues.

Look at the option for kids menus

Finally, check in with your venue management or the catering team dealing with your meals to understand what’s available for children and whether it’s worth asking parents of children to bring their own food if they’re under a certain age. There’s nothing worse than a bored AND hungry child!

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, so adding children into the mix can make things even more complicated. Be sure to use these tips to make planning easier for your wedding day.
