How to Entertain Children at your Bell Tent wedding

How to Entertain Children at your Bell Tent wedding 

So, you’ve booked your Bell Tent wedding, it’s a family occasion and the children are a big part of your special day. 

Once you’ve decided you want children at your Bell Tent wedding, it’s important to think about what part of the big day they will be involved in. Is it just the reception, or the ceremony too? 

It’s a good idea to make a list of your family and friends that have children and consider their ages before you invite them. It’s also helpful to get the opinions of friends and family too – some parents might welcome no children during the ceremony, but others could be offended. Remember, it’s your big day so what you decide as a couple is final. 

There are many ways you can involve children in your big day, for example, giving out programmes, confetti throwing and even making them bridesmaids or page boys. 

However, keeping children entertained all day requires some thought and by putting in the effort, it will mean everyone can have the best day ever at your Bell Tent wedding.

With this in mind, we highly recommend setting up a ‘Children’s Only Bell Tent’ and turning it into a ‘play den’ which has games and activities in, just for them. It could even involve their own picnic food and special items that the children have chosen themselves. We offer ‘Chill Out Tents’ that are perfect for this and can be adapted to suit your requirements. 

You can also hire entertainment to keep the little ones busy, such as circus skills or other children’s entertainers, but is often the simplest games and activities that keep them busy, for example football, 3 in a row and Jenga. You may find the older guests enjoying them too! 

We have lots of ideas and contacts when it comes to entertaining your little guests, so if you need any inspiration, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
