Tips for a Kid Friendly Wedding in Kansas City
Deciding – Adults Only or All Welcome?
Be sure to decide early on if you are wanting to have an adults-only wedding or all welcome. An adults-only wedding works well for late-night gatherings or more formal events. Families that live nearby and can call for a sitter for the night. With all being welcome, all ages of your family can be there to celebrate with you.
There are a few options as far as where the kiddos will sit. Be sure to choose what is best for YOU!
- Sitting with all other guests
- Separate kids table
- Children ages 7-14 tend to do well sitting at their own table.
- Separate room with child care
- A designated babysitter is extremely helpful.
If the meal provided for the wedding guests isn’t necessarily ‘kid-friendly’, be sure to ask the caterer for a separate kids menu. Happy kids = happy parents.
Kiddos are full of energy and will need something to do to keep them busy. They can only dance for so long!
