Entertain children within your wedding

Your wedding is a big part of your life, but it is important to remember that children are as well. Whether you have your own kids, cousins, nieces or nephews attending your big day, you will want to ensure that they are all thoroughly entertained.

Children are high-energy, and unfortunately can become bored easily. Providing entertainment within your wedding specifically for kids is a great way to ensure that they are happily occupied. But, what fun activities would be best?

Here at I Thee Wed, it is our goal to create your wedding to be not only beautiful, but entertaining as well. That’s why we have gathered some great ideas for keeping children occupied within your big day. If you are interested in some inspiration, be sure to continue reading to learn more

·         Get crafty. Kids are creative! Their imagination is certainly out of this world. So, why not let them express themselves? Create a kid’s table within your wedding reception that is crafted just from them. Instead of a tablecloth, lay down craft paper, provide crayons, stickers, stencils, and let them create works of art. They will certainly appreciate this fun table.
·         Scavenger hunt. What kid doesn’t love a good scavenger hunt? And the best part is, it is so easy to create! You can use items from within your wedding to build the list. From the red roses within your centerpieces, to spotting the guest book, you can list tons of items that have created your wedding for the little ones to seek.
·         Games. If you are looking for fun for not only kids, but all ages, games are certainly a must! You can create a game board table specifically for those looking to have some fun. Or, you can incorporate fun, interactive games, such as giant Jenga or Cornhole. If you really want to impress the kids, video games will always do the trick!

Couples planning a wedding often forget that little ones will attend. And while entertainment is provided for the older crowd, it is important that the children have some fun too. Here at I Thee Wed, we believe that every wedding should be planned with ease. If you are ready to begin planning your greater Cincinnati area big day, be sure to contact us today.

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

So, when you begin visiting venues and you learn that a venue has an event coordinator who tells you that you do not need to hire a wedding coordinator/planner, ask them if they will show up at the hotel while you and your girls are getting ready earlier in the day. Ask if they will be with you …

Emily + Tom

One of the perks of being in this business as a planner is the opportunity that we're given to really get to know our clients. I worked with such a special family last season and felt privileged and honored to be their planner. I felt like "one of the family" with this bride's family. The closeness and openness they have with each other and the way they are enjoying life is so refreshing and inspiring. They possess a unique family closeness that I can only hope for with my family as my children grow older. Emily was so easy-going and appreciative when it came to planning her wedding, as well as with the particulars that her mom and dad expressed. Her groom Tom was equally as expressive. These two are so much in love and I had so much fun working with them!

I love this pic of the girls kissing their mama!

In case you're wondering what this is, they are "Rolling on the River"!
