Have the Bartender Whip Up Custom Kiddie “Cocktails”

Fancy mini milkshakes should get them excited for the Champagne toast.

Make the Kid Table a Play Table

Get creative when it comes to tablescaping for the kiddos—candies, toys, crayons and a doodle-friendly paper table runner will keep them busy through at least the second course.

Set Up A Kids-Only Hideaway

Designate a separate space for the kids to hang, whether that's a breezy outdoor teepee or an adjacent rec room. Stock it with board games treats and even a mini projection screen for watching Frozen.

Print A Scavenger Hunt

Give each kid a list and a disposable camera and challenge them to locate and photograph every last item. Who knows? They might end up being your favorite wedding photos.

Elevate Lawn Games With Prizes

Bocce, croquet and corn hole are mega-popular options for an outdoor wedding. Add some kid-approved prizes and a formal moderator (cough, a babysitter) for extra incentive.

Hang An Enormous Chalk Paper Wall

And challenge the under-ten set to make you a stunning wedding mural.

Rent An Ice Cream Truck

We love a good wedding food truck—whimsical, nostalgic and just plain fun. But who wants plain old tacos when you could have choco tacos?

Set Up A Cupcake Decorating Station

Another sweets option? Set up a table where kids can decorate petite desserts for guests. (P.S. Hire a culinary skilled babysitter to supervise).

Stock A Photo Booth With Toy Props

Have you ever watched a five-year-old take selfies? Yeah, a photo booth should keep her occupied all night long—especially when props like swords and masks are added to the equation.

Rent A Showstopping Amenity

If you want to really ball out, rent a carousel, bouncy castle or merry-go-round. Endless entertainment, epic wedding photos. 

Tell Guests To Bring Their Pups

Better than a babysitter, as far as we’re concerned.
