Oh the mini wedding guests, they can really make a wedding that bit more fun. But, they can also cause no end of issues when they start to get bored. They are children just being children after all. The last thing you want in the middle of an emotional father of the bride speech is a toddler tantrum or a pre teen strop to ruin the moment. Finding ways to entertain the mini wedding guests is not a difficult one, and today we are going to give you some ideas.

Keep Your Mini Wedding Guests Entertained


Think about having a ‘kids table’

If many of your mini wedding guests are of school age, chances are their parents will be happy for them to sit on their own table. This may not be suitable if all of your small guests are of toddler age though!

If the children are a little bit younger, why not still create a ‘kids table’ but one that has fun activities on it that will entertain once the meal is finished but whilst the speeches are taking place.

Personalise their favours

Whether the children are sitting at the main tables or on their very own special table. Personalise their wedding favour to be more suited to their age group. Crayons, mini colouring books, sweets, and little activities are sure to be a hit!

Let them get involved in toasting the happy couple

Little one’s love nothing more than feeling ‘all grown up; let them get involved with toasting each of the speeches with their very own glass of something special! The cookie will keep them quite for all of five minutes too.

Give them some space

No matter how old the children are attending your big day, giving them their own space will go down a treat. Either a kids VIP room or a cute little tipi like this one below will have even your mini wedding guests talking about your wedding for years to come.

Have a dedicated kids station

Are you having a Pimms or Hot Chocolate station for your adult guests? Then why not have a station for your mini guests such as milk and cookies, a colourful slush station or a fun bubble station.
