How to involve children at a wedding?
Children usually evoke warm feelings in adults and put a smile on their faces. Especially during ceremonies such as weddings, the sight of them is touching. Moreover, such moments most often remain in the memories of guests. If you have children in your family, you should involve them to help during this important day.
The wedding cortege
Let's start with the wedding. You take care of the interior of the church. Beautiful flowers, carpet to the altar. The faces of the guests are facing you. And in front of you they are. Toddlers who lead you to the altar like fairy-tale characters, with expressions that touch everyone. Sometimes it will be a sweet smile, sometimes it will be too serious the face of a child taken over by his role. This is what your wedding can look like. However, remember not to force your children to play this role. Not everyone will feel comfortable in it. Talk to the youngest ones if they would like to accompany you at this important moment and what role they see themselves in. Maybe you are planning a dress with a long train and some girl dreams of carrying it for you. It will be a great experience for her, and an unforgettable and special moment for you.
The first dance is of course reserved for the bride and groom. But maybe it is worth considering whether to invite children to the next one, especially if there will be a lot of them at your wedding. Slightly older children will probably not be ashamed anymore and will be happy to take part in the fun. Girls especially like to shine on the dance floor, like princesses. If younger kids feel uncomfortable, their parents can join them too. Make a big circle and dance. A must for a melody known to children - songs from fairy tales will be a great idea.
First-hand photos and video
A professional photographer and cameraman is practically a must have during a wedding. However, if there are school-age children in your family who show an interest in the camera, ask them to take photos during the ceremony or even make a film. Most kids love to take pictures of adults. It's a great idea with only pluses. Not only will you not have to wait more than a month for photo editing, you will certainly see your ceremony from a different perspective. It's amazing how children perceive the world differently from adults. Such material can be a great souvenir - funny and touching at the same time.
There are many ideas for involving children to actively participate in the wedding. But remember that everyone must feel like it. This is the key to having fun.
