Keeping the children entertained

This is a collaborative post with OMG photo booth hire entertainment at weddings 

The days when children weren’t invited to big family events like weddings are no longer. Children now are included in the day . I know many people who have chosen to ask children to be things like bridesmaids or page boys. Not only does it give them a role to play it also keeps them entertained throughout the day.


Having a child myself I find it realty odd when people say that children are not invited to a wedding . I understand its personal preference and most of the time comes down to cost .To me children make a wedding watching them on the dance floor when no one else will dare to go on it, busting their best dance moves. I remember at my brothers wedding one of the children was trying to join in with the speeches . This was hilarious and one of my biggest memories from the day.

Also popping up at many weddings are entertainment ideas like photo booths. They are a great way to capture a moment and keep it for ever . Equipped with all the props to really make a fool of yourself. It’s always funny when you see your Nan in a bright pink wig and big sunglasses. Most of the time these are purchased to keep the children entertained, but are then taken over by the adults. If I’m honest I cannot remember the last time I went to a party and there wasn’t a photo booth of some sorts there.

Having children at weddings can mean tantrums and tears. it doesnt have to though all you need to do is add a few things into your special day to make them enjoy themselves. They dont have to cost the earth either #wedding #ideas #forchildren #flowergirl #children #entertainment

    I completely agree- children make a wedding for me too and I had about 30 at mine. I love seeing them run around and knee slide across the dance floor in their smart outfits!! Thanks for joining the #weekendblogshare
