From the cutest of page boys to adorable flower girls, having children at your wedding can be a truly wonderful experience. Depending on their age, they may be quite happy to join you on the dance floor and throw some moves, or sit and colour in while their parents enjoy a well-deserved cocktail, while others may need a little more entertainment to keep them amused throughout the day. 

The Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have plenty of ideas to keep little ones entertained at your wedding, here are just a few to give you some inspiration!

Table Games

There are lots of activities that will see kids happily occupied at a table, giving your guests the opportunity to tune into the speeches and enjoy the emotion of the day. From crafts such as colouring books, jigsaw puzzles and stickers, to Lego sets and play dough, why not create a theme and give prizes to the most creative? 

Alfresco activities

At Delamere Manor, we’re lucky to have a wonderful swing, available for both adults and children to enjoy! Alongside a swing, boules, croquet and giant outdoor games such as Jenga, Chess and Connect 4 bring a real sense of fun to the party and can be enjoyed by a range of ages.

A pinata will always go down well (with both kids and big kids!), and who doesn’t love a bubble machine? Not only do bubbles keep kids happy, they also look great on photos!

If you want to take the entertainment to the next level, a children’s entertainer can make a real difference. Whether it’s a magician, face painter, balloon modeller or one of their favourite superheroes, there are plenty of options available which will keep the littles ones mesmerised for hours!

Entertainment tent

Once the meal and speeches are complete and it’s time to turn your attention to the dance floor, the younger members of your party may be starting to tire. A small bell tent or gazebo with a film projector, bags of popcorn and some bean bags offers the perfect place for them to kick back, relax and enjoy a movie.
