Posted in WEDDING IDEAS
You’re by the altar, just about to say the long waited for “I do”… when incredible scream or funny comment destroys the atmosphere. Well, things like this can happen if on your wedding guests list are families with babies. Of course you are concerned about your guests, it might happen that for example your sister or a cousin happens to have little babies, which shall come to your wedding. You don’t want to offend anyone, but still your big day should be just as you dreamed about.
Don’t worry, there are solutions for everything, it only depends on you and your budget. In case you can afford it is always a good idea to hire a professional babysitter and entertainment, but if those do not enter into your wedding expense you might try to involve some of your wedding guests. Maybe you have a teenage niece or a cousin who happens to love children? Well, ask her or them to give you a hand!
Oh yes, this is the part which could be really hard. After all it is difficult for children to sit still and quiet for one hour, listening to priest and not understanding anything. But there are some simple ideas to keep our little ones out of troubles. The best way is to get them involved in the ceremony. I mean, is there anything cutter than little lovely flower girls, or tiny, smiling ring bearer? If you don’t trust completely their good manners ask maybe one of your bridesmaids or eventually teenage guest (they can be so useful sometimes!) to give them a little assistance. Of course, you cannot get all children to take part in your rite to keep occupied other ones make someone hand out just before the ceremony little bags containing some candies, a toy, some crayons and a little coloring book.
After the rite give them some bubbles to blow while you have your photos taken, children will really love that! And don’t forget to let them know that you noticed their good behavior and you’re proud of them.
