Are you looking for a way to incorporate children into your wedding day to make it extra special? Whether it’s your own children or nieces and nephews, including children in your wedding can make the day unique. Keep reading for tips on how to incorporate children into your wedding day!
Make Them Mini Wedding Planners
If you have children that love to shop and have an affinity for princess dresses, chances are they would love to spend the day wedding shopping with you. And we can almost guarantee that any kids out there would love to help with the cake-tasting portion of wedding planning. If you have older kids, they can also help with things such as designing your wedding website, helping seal and stamp envelopes, and other tasks that make them feel involved.
Give Them a Role in the Ceremony
Another wonderful way to incorporate children into your wedding day is by giving them a role in the ceremony. You can have them escort you down the aisle or give them the role of flower girl or ring bearer. If you want to have a truly special role for them, you can also make them best man or the maid of honor. Whatever you choose, you are sure to create some special memories for both you and the children.
Give Them a “Day Of” Gift
Just as couples often give each other wedding gifts, one way to incorporate your children into the wedding day and make them feel special is to give them a gift as well. Necklaces and rings are common for children old enough to have them. These are keepsakes that kids can cherish forever and will make them feel extra special on the big day. Younger children can receive stuffed animals that are wedding related.
Offer Kid-Focused Activities
If you are going to have a lot of kids at your wedding, you might want to offer some kid-focused activities that make them feel included. You can have a low-mess craft or coloring station at your reception and even design a mocktail ahead of time that kids can order through the night.
