If you have decided to invite children to your wedding, you will need to think about how to keep them entertained for the day. Weddings can be a bit of a slog for little guests and they can get bored easily… and bored can become bold very fast. This is easy to prevent with just a little forward-thinking. For example, the kids may get a little bored during the speeches so it’s a good idea to put entertainment packs at tables to keep them occupied.

For example, you should try to tell the guests early as they may need to book a babysitter well in advance.
