Children at weddings are wonderful, but sometimes you want them to be seen and not heard, especially when you’re saying your vows. Wedding nannies and creches are the best way to ensure the little darlings are entertained and looked after while you take your vows and make your speeches.
Wedding childcare comes in different forms, from Wedding nannies or a wedding creches to venue-based assistance whereby a small room can be put aside for a few guests and their children. It’s a place where mothers can breastfeed in private if they want to, and where toddlers can be watched while they nap. Small children can get bored at weddings and may want to run around outside or sit and play, and a dedicated space for this at a wedding is very useful. If you’re not hiring professional wedding nannies and creches for your big day then it’s a good idea to bring along a mixture of age-appropriate snacks and activities for the children. Check with their parents before giving them as not all parents will thank you for offering their children sweets or messy felt tip pens. Parents will bring snacks and favourite toys along but will appreciate a new colouring book and some small colouring pencils (not felt tips!) or puzzle books for older children and most children will enjoy a small box of raisins or similar. Weddings are all about families coming together, and so it’s lovely to invite children along to join in all the fun and the celebration of the big day too.
If you have any guests who are breastfeeding then not inviting children will mean not inviting them. Far better to invite everyone you love and, for families with several babies or small children a wedding nanny or creche, with their qualified nursery nurses, are the answer. Wedding nannies and creches quite simply make everyone’s lives easier on the big day.
