Childs play

Childs play

Q. We're having lots of children at our wedding, and want something that will keep them entertained. What do you suggest?

A. Chrissy Wilkie says: It's lovely to have children at your wedding but keeping them entertained is a difficult task that's often overlooked. Whether you have flowergirls to occupy or kids from a range of ages, choosing the right entertainment can be tricky. Here at Sweet Dreams Teepees, we create a space for the children to have as their own, providing a range of stimulating activities from colouring and word searches to playing games and stuffing teddies. This means you and your loved ones can relax and enjoy the day knowing your smaller guests are having the time of their lives.

Child's play

Child's play

Q. For our summer wedding how can we keep the little ones entertained and in one area of our venue's grounds – I don't want the worry of children wandering off!

A. Susie Young says: We'd suggest having a designated children's area. Our magical tents can be styled to your wedding colours and come filled with games, toys, craft activities, hula hoops, circus skills, bubbles and fun to keep children very happy.

Our DBS checked childcare team can be on-site working to OFSTED ratios to ensure nobody escapes, whilst leading little ones on treasure hunts and setting up challenges and races.

Alternatively, a magician, glitter facepainter or balloon artist is always a big hit.

In the evening, we find children will be tired after a busy day, and a movie with blankets, hot chocolate and popcorn gives them respite from their parents' dancing!

Whether it's for a few hours or available for the whole day, parents at weddings are always super appreciative of being able to have some adult only time at weddings to catch up with friends, hear the speeches and be able to enjoy all of the details you have planned and created.
