Four Cute Ways to Involve Your Kids in Your Wedding

More and more couples today are settling down and having children before deciding that it’s finally time to tie the knot. Perhaps you have children from a previous relationship, or maybe you’ve been investing your time and money into building your family before deciding to go ahead with a wedding. Whatever your reason, you will probably want to make sure that your little ones play a huge part in this wonderful day to celebrate mom and dad. We’ve listed some really cute ways that your kids can get involved with your wedding, both during the planning stage and on the day.

#1. Bridesmaids and Ushers:

Most parents will give the important roles of bridesmaid, flower girls, groomsmen or ring bearers to their children. Allowing your little ones to be such an important part of your bridal or groom party is the perfect way to make your wedding a true family affair. Your little one will feel so proud and happy to be able to walk up the aisle with their mom or hand the rings to dad when it’s time to say ‘I do’.

#2. Making Wedding Invitations:

If you’re hoping to save as much money as you can on tying the knot, then you might be considering making your own wedding invitations. Thanks to online tools where you can create wedding invitations at a fraction of the price that you’d pay a professional, it’s easier than ever to get professional, beautiful results by doing it yourself. Allowing your kids to help out with making invitations can make them even more unique and wonderful, not to mention that it can be a great family bonding activity!

#3. Include Your Children in Your Vows:

When traditional wedding vows were written, it was in an age where having children before marriage was generally frowned upon. However, things have changed, and with many couples now getting married after starting a family, including something about your children in your wedding vows is a popular choice. Mentioning your love and commitment to your children together when you say your vows to each other is a perfect way of making your little ones feel special, and demonstrating your commitment to the whole family, rather than just to one another.

#4. Have a Parent-Child Dance:

After your wedding ceremony has ended, it’s time to head to the reception where you can dance the night away with your new spouse, family and closest friends. During the wedding reception, it’s tradition to have the first dance between husband and wife, and then other family members such as the special dance between the bride and her father. To involve your little ones, why not include a special family dance, perhaps after your first dance together, where your children get up on the floor and you can enjoy the moment together as a family unit.

Many couples today are already parents by the time they pop the question and tie the knot. Did you involve your little ones in your wedding? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.
