Keeping Kids Entertained At A Summer Wedding

Having a hard time figuring out how to accommodate those beloved little ones on your special day?

There are endless possibilities when it comes to entertaining kids post-reception. For a summer wedding you really can’t go wrong with outdoor activities, but with our moody Irish weather, it’s not a bad plan to have a few additional backups! From lawn games to arts and crafts, these ideas will have your littlest wedding guests occupied while the adults celebrate the day. Bonus! There’s a pretty good chance that these some of these ideas will entertain more than just the kids’ table…
