Scotland wedding videos can be made all the more charming by the presence of lots of little cherubs running around (they do look delightful in suits and flower girl dresses, don’t they?), but play it safe with your wedding and decide on a few rules for them and their parents to follow before the big day. Here’s our guide.
Who can come
Don’t feel as though you have to invite all children if you’re inviting one or two. It’s fine to say that youngsters are allowed as long as they’re close friends or family. Don’t worry about how people will take it – it’s your wedding day, it’s your rules.
You might be tempted to stick all the kids on one table with one adult guest to monitor them but have a heart. Your adult wedding guest may not have the best of times if this is your strategy. If you can, seat all kids and parents together at one table or on several near each other so responsibility can be shared.
Don’t expect children to get a kick out of munching merrily away on beef Wellington and Eton mess. Their palettes aren’t necessarily as refined as ours so make sure there’s something available at your wedding breakfast that youngsters might enjoy a bit more.
With just a bit of preparation, adults and kids alike can have a great time at your wedding but as with anything, if you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail. So make sure you give it the thought that it needs.
