Are you going to have kids at your wedding? If you are, then it’s important to make sure that you have the right options in place. Let’s go over some of the ways that you can entertain kids at your wedding and make sure that they’re having fun. Are you ready to get started?

Entertaining Children

If there are children in your life that are important to you, it makes sense that you’ll want to have them at your wedding. With that being said, it can be somewhat overwhelming to think about entertainment options for kids at your wedding. Below are some of our top strategies that you can use if you want to make sure that children also have fun at your reception.

Separate Space

Having a separate space for kids to hangout can be a great option during your reception. Kids may be easily overwhelmed at your reception, so having a separate space where they can go could be a great option.


If you are going to have a space for younger ones to hangout during your reception, then consider hiring a babysitter or designating an adult to be in charge of the space. This can be a great way to make sure that there’s supervision and that everything’s okay. If you don’t ask someone to fulfill this role then you may be stressed during your wedding, so consider who you could ask to do this.


Choosing to have a separate space can be a great way to reduce your stress and make sure that everyone’s on the same page. We personally love this option and think that it can be a great choice for some weddings.

Puzzles and Games

If you know what tables the kids are going to be sitting at during your reception, then consider having some puzzles and games for them to play with. This can be a great way to ensure that they’re not bored and that they’re staying occupied.


Puzzles and games are the perfect opportunity for you to add a special touch to your big day. You could even let the kids take these things home as a special wedding favor. If you want to go the extra mile, consider getting some puzzles and games that are made specially for your wedding.


Puzzles and games can be fun for adults as well, so consider if that’s an element that you want to add to your reception. If your guests will have a little bit of downtime during your reception, making some personalized games can be a great way to make sure that they’re occupied and that they have something to do while they’re waiting.


If you have a wedding playlist, consider putting a few different options that the kids will like dancing to. That can be a great way to make them included and make sure that they feel like they’re part of the reception and that you want them there.
