I like kids. Chet likes kids. However, we had not intended on kids coming to the wedding. There a multiple reasons for this, some being that we're having the whole shebang in a historic building with historic, expensive, breakable things. We also felt that it's hard to have an intimate ceremony when kids are running around and being kids.
Hear that: they are just being kids! We just didn't particularly want that at our wedding.
Well, we were over-ruled. And, that's okay I suppose. This was one of those things that it was easier just to say bring the kids and we'll get over it.
So, now I am trying to figure out how to keep the kidlets occupied.
One bride posted some great pictures and ideas:
1. Cover their tables in butcher paper so they can color on the table.
2. Coloring books (to be used with colored pencils – must not ruin your dress!)
3. Fun stickers
4. Pipe cleaners

Minus the "must not ruin your dress" comment, these are some good ideas. And cheap, because that is really important to me currently.
