First Things First: Choosing a Date
By: Taylor Selcke | Posted: 02/18/2014
"Kids or no kids?" is the question that will inevitably crop up in the thick of hashing out your guest list. Everyone has their own opinion on whether or not a wedding should be a kid-free or kid-friendly event, but at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is what you and your groom-to-be decide. And should you choose to extend the invite from "Mr. and Mrs. Jones" to "The Jones Family," you'll need to keep the kiddos in mind throughout the planning process.
Luckily, kids are pretty easy to please, so before you freak out over adding more thing to your wedding to-do list, check out our suggestions for keeping even the rowdiest ring bearer and fussiest flower girl satisfied all night (well, until the babysitter puts them to bed).
If the word "chicken" isn't followed by the word "nugget" on the menu, they won't eat it. So don't even try. Instead, be prepared with a few kid-friendly offerings. Think: hot dogs, cheese pizza, mac 'n' cheese, french fries, and, yes, chicken nuggets. Waylay any impatience that may arise between the ceremony and dinner with goodies they can snack on all night long, like popcorn (Lasting Impressions By Amy of White Bear Lake even offers a popcorn buffet, with flavors like Chocolate Drizzle and Pink Cotton Candy) and other sweets. For dessert, we suggest D'Amico Catering's adorable milk and cookie "shooters."
