Weddings and Kids - Is it a good idea?

This week we have been looking into having kids at your wedding. We know that there is a divided opinion on this topic, with many choosing to opt out on kids at their wedding, but for others, the day wouldn't be the same without them.

We all know, kids can definitely be a handful, with their attention spans often drifting from one thing to the next in a matter of seconds. Which is why we've decided to discuss and provide ideas and inspiration to soon-to-be-brides who are having kids, be that their own, family or friends at their wedding, with ideas with ways to entertain and incorporate them into your special day.

1. Wedding Favours for kids

Especially with their short attention spans, you need to keep kids entertained. Providing them with favours on their table, or where they are seated is a great way to keep them occupied. Have a look at these gorgeous kids table ideas. They have crayons, paper, lollies and even having some Lego they could all play with!

2. Must have photos with your kids

There have been some beautiful photos we have stumbled across this week of children sharing their parent's special day. These photos are must haves for the family and wedding album. A beautiful mother daughter moment, with her little girl captured wearing her mother’s wedding dress. This is a great photo to have of your daughter and then be able to give to her on her wedding day. Another memorable moment with the groom and ring bearer, getting ready before the big day! Such a touching photo and a must have for the family album, so sweet.

Kids will always make you laugh, if you ask your photographer to keep checking the kids for any wonderful moments to capture you could have some of the best photos to share with them on their 18th Birthday! Have a look at some of these great shots of kids at weddings.
