Hello, brilliant event planners! As you design memorable weddings, you may encounter couples who wish to include children in their wedding celebration. Whether they’re the couple’s children, nieces, nephews, or adorable flower girls and ring bearers, incorporating children in the celebration adds an extra touch of joy and sweetness. In this guide, we’ll explore delightful ways to include children in weddings, creating heartwarming memories for all.

1. Special Roles for Little Stars ⭐

Consider assigning special roles for the little stars in the wedding party. They can be flower girls, ring bearers, junior bridesmaids, or ushers. These roles not only make the children feel important but also create endearing moments during the ceremony.

2. Kid-Friendly Activity Stations 🎨

To keep young ones entertained, set up kid-friendly activity stations at the reception. Include coloring books, crayons, puzzles, and games suitable for different age groups. A designated play area ensures the children have a blast while the adults enjoy the festivities.

3. Child-Centered Catering 🍕

Craft a kid-friendly catering menu that includes their favorite treats. Mini sliders, chicken fingers, and sweet treats are sure to bring smiles to their faces. Don’t forget to offer child-sized portions to cater to their appetites.

4. Interactive Photo Booth Fun 📸

Create a kid-friendly photo booth with props and accessories perfect for little ones. Let them strike adorable poses and capture those heartwarming moments. The photo booth will become a cherished keepsake for both children and their families.

5. Dancing and Music for All Ages 💃🎶

Include children in the dancing festivities by playing songs they love. Encourage dance-offs and fun dance moves, making the dance floor an exciting place for the young and young-at-heart.


Dear event planners, including children in wedding celebrations brings an extra layer of magic and delight. With thoughtful planning and creative ideas, you can ensure the young ones have a blast while being an integral part of this special day. From assigning special roles to kid-friendly activities and catering, every detail contributes to a heartwarming celebration that families will treasure forever.
