Wedding Entertainment for Children
Weddings are a family celebration. For that reason we believe that it’s important to make sure that all of the guests have a great time on the big day. We’ve found that the entertainment for the children is particularly useful during the speeches.
With that in mind, we would like to provide you with a few ideas of what’s appropriate for the different age ranges during your big wedding day.
In short though, hiring a professional entertainer for the children, is a great way to make sure that their wedding experience is as special and as memorable as yours is sure to be.
Children age 0 – 3
This age are easily catered for, and often just want to spend time with their parents and family. My recommendation would be to hire some soft play equipment and place it in a separate room. If you have some child friendly music and nursery rhymes, then that’s a good idea too. Storytelling is another good idea for children of this age range.
Children age 4 – 10
Ready Steady Magic specialise in entertainment for children in this age range. All we require is a separate room and one other responsible adult and we can keep the children entertained for up to an hour (and longer too, if you wish). The basic package starts with a 45 minute magic show suited just for the age range of the children. It’s lively, silly and lots of fun. This is followed by a balloon model for each child there. Parents can watch and be involved with the show too. As can older and younger children.
Children age 11 – 17
For this age, we have two recommendations. Firstly they will usually enjoy the evening entertainment. And if you are having a disco then choosing some music that they enjoy is a great way to keep them involved. Secondly, Ready Steady Magic can provide close up magic, which is a great way to keep guests of all ages involved. Close up magic is a live, interactive personal performance of magic. It’s great family entertainment as everyone can be involved together.
We have on occasion been asked to provide a series of family games and challenges, and although we realise that this may not suit every wedding. For some it is another great way to enjoy spending time with the family in a fun, relaxed way. Another idea is to hire garden games for the guests to play.
Often we’re asked to provide a combination of the entertainment suggested above. If you would like to discuss your event and have us put together a custom package just for you then get in touch by email or on the number above.
