Children (or child) at wedding

Recommended Posts

Hello brides!

 

We're getting married in less than a month in Turks and Caicos! We only have on child at our wedding (my only niece) who is also our flower girl. I want to make sure she has enough activities to do during the reception since she's the only little one. She's 3. Any ideas? I will definitely have a coloring book and crayons, but have any other ideas? She's my only niece (or nephew for that matter) and I want to make sure she has fun.

 

Thanks!

 

 

Betty

 

btw..the wedding is outside on the beach!

Hey Kim!

I would think that your niece's mom would definitely pack plenty for her to do; perhaps some of the guests will be available to babysit to some effect later in the evening as well?

 

I know my sis and bro in law are likely bringing their boy and girl (who will be in the wedding with us as well), and feel great about doing so because grammy and grampy will be around to babysit throughout the resort time! LOL

Maybe a puzzle? A disposable camera for her to take pictures? A little doll/stuffed animal that's a bride?

She's at an age where it is a little difficult to figure out what you could give her that isn't noisy/messy. Maybe you should ask your niece's mom what types of things she likes (ie characters, activities, etc.). 

 

Hope that helps a little.

You could set up a table or blanket off to the side with a variety of toys/puzzles to occupy her time. And when the "babysitters" are there to play with her she'll enjoy it even more as it will feel like her own personal little playhouse. And yes, her parents should definitely add to the batch by bringing her fave toys. An ipad works wonders for kids too. Keeps them busy for hours.

I've heard an idea where they give the kids an "iSpy" game. They print out a pretty list of things/people for them around the event space. If she's old enough, you could give her a camera to photograph all the things she finds.

 

Also, if all else fails, you could set her up with a comfy chair, some cocoa, and an iPad with a good movie idea.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
