How to Have an Elegant Wedding – with Kids of All Ages!

Children and weddings can be extraordinary – in every sense!

If you choose to have children at your wedding, I hope you have a game-plan! Here are some tips and tricks to having a successful night. 🙂

1. Have a plan! Keep your Moms and Dads in the loop! Depending on how many children you have in attendance, think about creating a separate program just for them. Include on it the do’s and don’ts, where parents can change diapers, give little ones a chance to nap, etc.

2. Give them responsibility. When faced with one task, some children will do whatever they can to feel like they are being useful. Let them hand out bubbles or fans as your guests enter the church! Even better, hand out some disposable wedding cameras and let them capture a whole new perspective you would have never thought about! They’re plastic, let the photographer grab all of the essential shots while your kiddies grab some candid ones. Keep them busy while putting them to work!

3. Keep them busy! Hand out this amazing Wedding Activity Book! Included is word puzzles, crosswords, colouring activities (yes, complete with crayons). It’s an essential for your reception! What better way to keep your kids busy? They can keep themselves busy!

#4. Cater to them—Your kiddies will not appreciate the gorgeous Swish Cup Set that you picked out for all of your adults, and I doubt they’ll be able to do much with the Love Dove Bottle Openers you picked out either. So what do kids want?

I think you already know the answer to that.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking – you want me to give the kids CANDY? Well yes, I think that it’s a great idea. They’ve been running around all day, by the time they get to the reception and are ready to show off their dance moves, they are going to be tired. A bit of a sugar rush will be just what they need before they pass right out.

#5. Be understanding – kids will be kids. Yes, kids are goofy! Likely you’ll have the occasional tot crying or whining, but the older kids will probably be a little mischievous. They’re at a family gathering with cousins that they may not regularly see! Let them have a bit of fun at the reception- you can relax now too. 🙂

Ciao for now!

Personalized Wedding Favours – To Go

Brides and wedding planners are telling me all the time – we’re busy! So, when they ask if our wedding favors are already packaged and I say yes, it’s kinda like telling them they’ve just won the lottery. Yep, most of our wedding favours are delivered in great gift packaging which saves you time and money. From clear boxes in a variety of shapes to those finished with sheer organza ribbon, there’s great party favor packaging options to suit any taste!

For my wedding (no thaaat long ago!), I bought individual shot glasses in bulk…ran around to find the ideal semi-transparent party favor boxes, and then of course, the perfect decorating ribbon. All in all, I thought they were the best, unique wedding favours! And I just ran labels through the printer (a few dozen!) times and voila, I had personalized tags for my wedding favors, too!

Would I do that again? No way!

Back then, I would have loved to buy personalized wedding favours that were pre-packaged in custom favor boxes. As any bride, though, I was on a mission to get the exact, wedding favours I imagined. Now, I’m running In Casa Gifts with literally thousands of options to choose from. One of our favorites are our custom personality favors, which let’s you pick from a bunch of favor box designs and tag options. How cool is that?

Anyway, if you’re looking for unique wedding favors, make that personalized unique wedding favours with personalized tags…glad we could help! (oh, did I mention we’ll deliver them right to your door anywhere in Canada or the U.S. – FREE?).

Now get to all the other things on your list! Bye for now…
