Summer Guide to Entertaining Kids at Your Wedding
Spring and summer are ripe for parties, especially weddings. There’s a lot that goes into planning a wedding, and allowing kids to attend is going to add one more thing to your to-do list. Fortunately, there are easy ways to entertain (and contain) kids at our wedding.
Having kids at the wedding
Weddings are about joining families and friends, and that includes the kids. Entertaining and accommodating kids at a wedding will require a little extra planning and a few additional party rentals. As long as you plan ahead, kids are relatively easy to take care of during a wedding.
The best thing you can do for yourself if you have kids at the wedding is to plan for a lot of entertainment and activities that are safe and manageable for kids. Don’t plan wild, physical activities that require a lot of adult supervision. Plan for contained entertainment. You do want the activities to be physical because kids aren’t going to want to sit quietly with a puzzle or crayons for the entire wedding.
A bounce house is the perfect outdoor activity for kids that will keep them active, entertained, and contained. You will need to supervise the bounce house, but once the kids are inside and bouncing, then it’s easy to manage for an adult. You can hire babysitters, or parents can take a turn watching the bounce house.
Adults love bounce houses
Weddings are fun and festive, so don’t discount the chance that a few of your adult guests will want to bounce as well. A bounce house could even make for some fun and action-packed wedding photos. Just make sure that you stay safe.
Kid friendly bar and concessions
For outdoor weddings, having large scale lawn games can also provide safe and fun entertainment for both kids and adults. You can also rent kid-friendly concessions, like cotton candy, Sno-Cones, and popcorn makers. Create a little kid friendly bar where they can get their non-alcoholic beverages and snacks, while the adults crowd around the adult bar.
Rent bounce houses and accessories for any occasion.
