5 Fun Ways to Include Children in Your Wedding Day

5 Fun Ways to Include Children in Your Wedding Day

Whether it’s your own children, nieces and nephews, or your best friend’s child, it’s always so special to be able to include children in your wedding, but how? It’s especially tricky to navigate this when you want to include more than one child. 

Here are a few ideas to inspire you as you plan your big day.

  1. Give Them Something Important to Do

If you plan to do a lot of DIY for your wedding day, get the children in your life involved – if they are old enough that is. Whether it’s placing invites in envelopes or having them help you with your wedding favors, there are so many little tasks they can assist you with. Plus, showing that you trust them with a project for a big day will really make them feel special.

  1. Include Them in the Ceremony

There are so many fun ways to include younger children in your ceremony, particularly the procession. Get them to lead the procession as flower girls or ring bearers or hold up fun signs right before you and your wedding party enter. If there are older children, you can always get them to hold onto your bouquet or speech during the ceremony, anything that makes them feel involved and important.

  1. Plan Some Photos

Since family and wedding party photos are an integral part of the day, why not plan a few special shots with the children in your life. Just make sure you work this into your timeline with your photographer. To make the photos fun for the kids, you can even work in a few props that fit in with the theme of your wedding.

  1. Plan Something Special for the Reception

Children can also be a part of your reception. Using some fun, upbeat music, get them to lead you into your reception. You can even plan a special dance with them in the months leading up to your wedding, giving them something to look forward to on the day. 

  1. Have Them Join the Cake Cutting

Who doesn’t love cake? Especially young children! This is another part of your reception that you can include children in. Plus, the moment makes for some wonderful photos. You can even offer them the first slice of your cake as a way to make them feel special in that moment. 

See! Including children in your wedding is easier than you might have thought. We hope these ideas have helped inspire you.
