Children at a wedding

 

Weddings are the greatest thing for children. The children used to play weddings and what do you think, how happy they are when they are finally invited to a real wedding celebration. The little guests are the highlight at every wedding celebration. They make people laugh and it's fun to just watch them jump around the dance floor without fear. cheap formal dresses

The little ones have shining eyes when they see the bride in her dream dress and everything is solemnly decorated. Little, cute girls' dresses, which are equipped with tulle skirt and sequins, can be seen at every wedding. Every little girl would like to be a bride and so it is a very special moment for the little ones. The little boys are just like dad and put on a cute suit with a little bow tie or tie. Nobody can compete with them if they conquer the dance floor and ask Aunt Hilde to dance. It's incredibly cute!

But so that the little ones don't get bored after seeing their fill, they need a special place. If you are planning a wedding with children, you should also ensure that there is fun, the right food, small emergency baskets and favors for children.

Nobody wants to see children crying at the wedding. So that that doesn't happen, you should come up with something. Children have special needs and demands that must be met so that the celebration can run smoothly. A nicely designed children's corner with toys and painting supplies, little things to snack on and also a quiet corner where children can take their afternoon nap should already be included. You should also think of a quiet place for breastfeeding mothers, for child-friendly food at the wedding and exciting entertainment for the little ones.

So that the parents and other guests who are present can celebrate and enjoy the day in peace, you should ask yourself the following questions: How do you keep children busy at the wedding? How do you set up a play corner and what should be found in it? Are the children allowed to take on small tasks to include them in the wedding? What is the right food for children and what is the best way to decorate the children's dining table so that it blends in with the rest of the wedding decorations? We'll tell you that and much more today.


Child activity - a stress-free wedding

Children are always ecstatic and excited when they are invited to an event, especially a wedding. They can hardly wait for the day to come, they are tucked into chic dresses and small suits and are allowed to look like the big ones. Together you go to see relatives and friends and this creates a festive mood for the little ones.

Before you start, you can make the little visitors happy. How about sending the little guests of friends and relatives a sweet wedding invitation card? So you know what to expect and it will be a very special day for you.

It's always great for children to get mail anyway, and when it comes to eating cake, looking at the bride and groom and dancing to the music, the little children's eyes get big. With an invitation card all for them alone, you will make them very happy and they will only long for the day.

Then the invitations are sent and the children come. Now it's time to plan. Preparation is essential for you so that little Lisa and little Jens don't get bored. While the grown-ups are partying and talking, they need something to do. These can be fun games, something to paint or do handicrafts, a clown or magician who keeps the children busy for some time so that mom and dad can also have fun and relax.

Constantly taking care of the kids, seeing where they are walking, or calming down crying kids can be stressful at times. It is better if the hosts - that is, you - think in advance how they can best keep the little guests occupied. So everyone is more relaxed and all guests can enjoy the celebration in peace.


What tasks can children take on at the wedding?

To keep the little ones busy, they can take on many meaningful and at the same time sweet tasks. It is best to integrate the little guests into your wedding, because this way they have something to do and they won't get bored.

For example, you can use them in the classic way as flower children who scatter the petals in front of the bride in church to make the whole walk to the altar even more romantic. Even if you are not getting married in a church, you can have the flower children scatter their flowers in front of the registry office. Usually nobody has anything against it and the result is such wonderful pictures.

However, if you choose the flower children, you should make sure to use harmless flowers. Many petals look beautiful, but if they come into contact with skin or mucous membrane, they can be harmful. Since small children in particular like to put things in their mouths, you should make sure that your flowers are by no means poisonous. It is best to seek advice from a florist and do not pick flowers from the flower meadow yourself.

If you have children yourself or if you invite close friends and relatives with children, you can assign these children special tasks. Children are almost always happy when they can take on large and small tasks. If you describe the tasks as extremely important to them, they will be even more pleased.

It can also be funny to hand the small children funny signs and send them down the aisle through which the newlyweds are walking. Sayings like "Here comes the bride", "Security" or "Ring-Bringer" are quite entertaining for little girls and boys. Especially when they are still very young, because then they stumble down the corridor in small steps, but have an important task and will conscientiously take care of it, no matter how small they are.

Of course, the children should always feel comfortable. As soon as a child becomes scared and does not want to do the task, you should understand it and not force it. After all, it's not that easy to appear in front of so many eyes. And if the little ones don't dare to do it, you shouldn't scold them.


So the gaming table can be designed for different age groups

It is perfectly normal for not only children of one age group to be present at a wedding. After all, not all of your acquaintances, relatives and friends have children at the same time. There may be a few babies who are a few months to a year old, but also toddlers who are two to three years old. However, younger children between the ages of five and ten can also be present. You should think about something for all of them so that they don't get bored.

Since small children, whether they are babies or toddlers, cannot eat or play on their own and therefore need all-round care by their parents, they do not actually need a children's table. Building it up makes more sense when there are really young children present who want to be busy and also need something to do so that the parents can relax for once.

A cozy corner for babies and toddlers

Small children can sit alone, but cannot eat alone and prefer to be with their parents. Especially if the children are not yet in kindergarten and have therefore not yet got used to other children, they may feel intimidated by them. So they definitely need supervision. But what is the best way to design a baby corner or a corner for small children?

The children's corner for small children and babies should by no means be carelessly furnished. The parents would definitely not leave their children there like this. Your children's corner should therefore be designed to be inviting. Colorful, beautifully decorated, cozy, cozy and above all not in the middle of the room so that the little ones can sleep if they want. You should also make sure that the corner is not out of reach of the parents so that they can intervene if something should happen or the children need help.

A table is completely superfluous with really young children. You won't sit down on it anyway. It is worth putting on lots of blankets and pillows. The cozier it is, the better. If mom or dad are not comfortable there, they will hardly spend their time there, so you should do your best.

Cozy large floor pillows, small pillows, large blankets, cozy play blankets - you can decorate your children's corner with all of these things. So that it doesn't get too cold from below if a ceiling slips, it is worth laying out a small carpet as a foundation. Then you spread your blankets and pillows generously on it so that it neither gets cold nor the children could hurt themselves. You can decorate the corner with fairy lights, pennants or lanterns to bring a little more cosiness into play. Indirect light is perfect because it allows the little ones to sleep a little when they feel like it.

Which toys are suitable for babies and toddlers?

You have now set up a cozy corner for the very little guests that has neither sharp edges nor cold corners. Everything is wonderfully softly lined with blankets and pillows and so now we get down to business. Which toys are right for young children? What do you have fun with and what is the best thing to keep you busy for a long time?
It is nice when you set up play boxes with toys in them. You can also sort the toys by age group if you want, because that way the parents also have a better overview. However, this is only worthwhile if there are really many small children of different age groups at your wedding. Also, it is worth asking parents what are the children's favorite toys. These can then also be brought along.

Everything that can be grasped is suitable for babies and toddlers. Rattles, blocks, stuffed animals, but also picture books or books made of fabric that make noises are very popular. Crackling paper, hand rims and towels are welcome to give the little ones a change.

For children from one year of age you have to work harder. You want to be really busy and you can already walk. Soft toys, books, but also balls (preferably made of fabric so that nothing breaks and you can't hurt yourself), cars and dolls are ideally suited to bring fun.

With all toys that you have ready for babies, toddlers and small children, you should always make sure that they cannot swallow any small parts under any circumstances. So make sure that the toy is really suitable for small children.

Which toys to choose for the children's table?

For children who are older, who go to kindergarten or elementary school, you should have a few books with exciting topics ready. Dolls, teddy bears, and stuffed animals are also good choices. Balls and board games for different age groups are also a good idea.

Many children also like to paint. You can have different coloring books and pens ready, but also individual copies with the same motifs so that the children don't start arguing about who is allowed to color which picture. It can also be useful to have different pens such as wax painters, felt-tip pens and colored pencils ready, because every age group likes to paint with different pens. It would also be important to make sure that the pens only make stains that can be washed out again, otherwise it could be that the cute suit and the cute little dress were worn for the last time at your wedding.

If you have enough time, you can also pack the coloring things individually in bundles so that every child has the same starting point and there is no argument. The same coloring book with the same pens, each book labeled with the respective name of the child and everyone is already painting the same thing without a fight. Stickers and adhesive books, which can be individually designed, are also particularly popular.

However, you can also let the children get creative themselves. To do this, set up a table, decorate it with a long wallpaper or roll of paper and pens. The children can start painting on the table and are guaranteed to find it even more interesting than painting on a piece of paper or in a coloring book.

Special tasks for school children

School children sometimes also like simple tasks and puzzles. A few games of skill, a few books that are interesting and from which you can still learn something, or card games are definitely a good idea.

If you want to integrate the older children into the wedding, you can also make a fun game that every child will likely be happy to participate in. All you need is a notebook, a disposable camera and a few tasks. So you could give them tasks for the wedding: How many people are there? Are there more women or more men? How many children are there? Who has the most beautiful dress? Who's the funniest tie? Which cake tastes best? Who has the nicest necklace? These are all questions that you can answer quickly and easily, take photos and keep you busy for some time.



How to design the children's corner when you're partying outside?

Those who celebrate outside often have many options for setting up a children's corner. The easiest way is to spread blankets under a tree or a shady spot and place pillows and other cozy items on top. A wooden bench or beer bench is also an ideal highlight for children, especially when they notice that they can be there without adults. So play and fun develop all by themselves.

Anyone who does not celebrate in the garden but has rented a location should take a look around on site and discuss with the service staff where best to set up a play area for children. The blazing sun should be avoided and a road should not be nearby. It is also practical if the parents can keep an eye on the children without having to get up all the time.

When you have cleared the place and the location, it goes to the decoration. Blankets and pillows are compulsory to make the children feel comfortable. But the atmosphere also has to be right. So you can hang colorful cloths, lanterns, fairy lights and pennants in the trees and bushes. Small tents, tipis and tunnels are also fun so that the children can have fun. So you have a place of retreat when you get tired or just want to be alone for a moment.

If you take your time, you can make a small campfire with the children in the evening (of course, only under supervision) and grill stick bread with them. This requires little effort, but is a lot of fun on the part of the children.

What children's games to prepare for a summer wedding?

Even if you have set up a shady spot for the children with toys and crayons, they still need a little more variety in summer. Children want to cool off or play in the sand. A sandpit shell is just the thing, because you can pour sand into one half and water into the other half. So they get cooling and fun all at once. Let parents know in advance so they can pack swimwear for the little ones.

Outside they can play hide and seek, practice with the hula hoop, jump rope, make soap bubbles, tinker paper planes, play ball or drive around on a scooter.

Should it be professional childcare for the wedding?

A cozy champagne reception, a great 3-course menu or a wonderful wedding ceremony where the children present start crying? Please do not! Help is available in the form of professional childcare for weddings. Especially if you have children of your own who you cannot look after so intensively during the wedding, professional childcare can be an advantage.

If you hire a professional, you have more of the day, because professional childcare specializes in distracting children in certain situations, playing great games with them or showing them something. There are magicians, soap bubble artists, clowns, but also puppeteers or a whole team that keeps the children busy so that they don't bother the other guests and the bridal couple. It is particularly practical if the childcare service organizes an entire program for the children so that it does not get boring. There are painting rounds, but also little magic pieces or tricks that are rehearsed or demonstrated, or funny games to keep the children busy.

So the parents have enough time for themselves, can drink a glass of sparkling wine in peace, congratulate the bride and groom and toast with them, enjoy the 3-course menu or simply dance or chat in peace. This allows the parents present at your wedding to really relax, knowing that their children are in good hands and busy.


Where do the little ones eat?

It is best to speak to the parents before planning the meal and ask them whether their children should eat at their table, whether they can already eat at the children's table by themselves or whether they want to sit down to eat at the children's table. There are many options and anyone who asks the various pairs of parents will quickly and easily find a solution that everyone agrees with.

It is important that the parents sit close to the children's table or the children's dining table so that they can intervene if something happens or the children cannot cope with their food on their own.

Incidentally, the space for parents should not be underestimated. Small children generally need help with eating and so parents need a place to help them. A corner bench turns out to be rather impractical. However, individual chairs and children's chairs are ideally suited to stand at the children's table.

Also keep in mind that it can sometimes get loud at the children's table. That is normal. However, it can be that other guests feel disturbed by this, so a little distance from the other guests makes sense.

If, by the way, dogs are allowed at your wedding, place the dog owner somewhere else and not in the corner of the children's table. Otherwise the dog would be nervous all day and so are the children who are afraid of dogs.

So you can decorate the dining table for children

It becomes practical when several children can sit together at the children's table and eat. So they are busy with each other when the adult guests eat. It is important that the service staff is informed that this is a children's table so that they do not stock up with china or other fragile items.

It is easiest to put on cardboard or plastic plates and cardboard and plastic cutlery, so nothing can break and the children cannot hurt themselves with it. There are now really nice cardboard and plastic dishes, so that the difference to real dishes is not even noticeable. Many restaurants have beautiful dishes for children, so it's definitely worth asking. If you buy paper plates yourself, you can ensure that the cardboard or plastic dishes match the rest of the decoration.

You can decorate like on the other tables. Children like flowers in plastic vases and confetti. But you should leave out candles and other dangerous things so that the little ones cannot injure themselves. If you don't want to do without candles, you can also use plastic tea lights with batteries and spread them on the table.

Which dishes are suitable for children?

Even if caviar, artichokes, rum cake and quiche Lorraine are very popular with you, you should come up with a few dishes and feasts for the children present. Alcohol should never be included in a dish and some children have allergies. It is best to ask the parents whether the children are allergic to anything and arrange a meal for everyone accordingly.

Remember what you liked to eat as children. There should also be something for the little ones that they can easily put in their mouths with their hands. You can safely leave out noble 5-course menus. A child is neither so hungry nor do they want to sit still for so long.

Pasta with sauce, French fries with ketchup or mashed potatoes with chicken nuggets are just the thing to make children happy. A few nibbles should also be ready at the table, because children often get hungry in between. Sliced ​​vegetables with a few dips, cookies, pretzel sticks and chips are good for in between meals. As long as the pieces are small, the children can even take them by themselves and do not need adult help all the time. Different fruits or vegetables are nicely arranged to highlight. It tempts the children to have healthy snacking and tastes good at the same time.

What to do with breastfeeding mothers?

It is now common practice for mothers to simply breastfeed where they sit, but there are also enough mothers who just don't want that. You should set up a small corner for them to breastfeed so that they don't have to go to the toilet.

It will be easiest if you put a chair or a small bench in a quiet corner. It is best to conceal the corner a bit and equip the chair with a cushion so that it does not become uncomfortable when breastfeeding for a long time. You have already solved the problem and the breastfeeding mothers will also feel good at your wedding.


What gift for the children?

Favors are welcome at the wedding. A lot of couples choose to do something individual. For example, there are Smarties with the faces of the bride and groom, a candle with a couple print or even homemade love jam that has been beautifully decorated.

But these gifts are not necessarily something for children. They prefer something to do, so that they don't just use the gift after the wedding, but can have fun with it during the wedding. Yo-yos, spinning tops, a coloring book with pens, bouncy balls or a small handicraft book are just the thing to keep children busy and at the same time give them a gift.

Balloons filled with confetti or soap bubbles with a picture of the wedding couple attached are also nice. So the children can play with it and you have a little more pretty decorations at the wedding.

Emergency basket for children at the wedding

You probably know an emergency basket for the bride or groom. This usually contains chewing gum or mint candy, deodorant, hairspray, but also anti-stain pens, headache tablets or a lint roller. So the bride, groom and guests still look good even after hours of partying.

An emergency basket for children makes sense in any case, because children often get dirty when you can't use it. Many parents have a change of clothes with them, but not a whole wardrobe either. So it can be useful to have wet wipes ready for children so that dirt can be roughly removed. Even small children's plasters with funny motifs provide quick help if a child has cracked their knee or got a small scratch.

It is also practical if you provide diapers in different sizes, think of the changing mat, provide wet wipes and baby cream or even think of a baby bib to eat. In this way, parents do not have to worry about anything if they forget something at home.

Nice end: thank you card for the little ones

Anyone who, in retrospect, would like to give the children great pleasure and remind them of the beautiful day can send them a special thank you card just for them. In particular, if the children were very involved in the wedding, for example as a flower child, ring bearer, photographer with a disposable camera or security, they look forward to a thank you card with a special greeting.

Select a child-friendly card and write in it how beautiful you have done as a flower child, ring bearer, etc. Thank you for your help and put some pictures from the wedding in it. So you have something in your hand that you can show your friends and what you can put in your room. A nice memory for them - even if they get bigger. long sleeve formal dresses australia

This is how you can find the right precious metal for the engagement ring and your wedding rings

 The selection of precious metals for engagement and wedding rings is large. Which is the right choice for you depends on many factors. Your desired color can play a role, but also properties of the material, the desired fineness and, last but not least, your budget. We introduce you to the various precious metals and the most important selection criteria. formal dresses online

The precious metals and their properties

Most couples are guided primarily by color when choosing a precious metal. Gold is a popular classic that is available in many colors. If you want silver nuances, you can also choose platinum, palladium or silver in addition to white gold. In addition to the color differences, criteria such as durability, wearing comfort and the desired style are decisive.


Gold - the classic in many variations

Yellow gold is the most classic choice for wedding rings. Many couples still choose yellow gold rings  , which have a high symbolic value. The typical yellow-gold color is more intense the higher the fineness. The stone setting on a yellow gold engaement ring comes into its own thanks to the color contrast with the precious metal.

White gold offers the symbolic power of gold, but shines in a white-silvery color. The white gold gets its light color from the coating with rhodium. At AURONIA only high quality alloys with a high palladium content are used. As a result, the white gold rings are color-fast and of high quality. White gold is also the right choice for you if you value a comfortable weight. Allergy sufferers also often choose it because white gold is extremely skin-friendly.

In contrast to white gold, gray gold is not rhodium-plated. As a result, it retains its natural color, which is a little darker than the white-silvery white gold. It is ideal if you want a gray-silver ring for a modern style. As for ring made of white gold AURONIA only uses high-quality alloys with a high percentage of palladium for gray gold rings. Accordingly, the gray gold rings are color-fast and skin-friendly.

Red and rose gold tones are particularly popular with multi-colored designsDepending on how intense you want the red gold tone, you can choose between rose, apricot and red gold. Rose and apricot gold offer a delicate pink shimmer and a warm sheen. Red gold on the other hand, has a deeper shade of red that harmonizes with all skin tones. All three precious metals get their reddish shimmer from the addition of copper to the high-quality gold alloy. If you combine them with white gold, platinum, palladium or silver, you will get effective contrasts for your rings.


Palladium - Resistant precious metal with high wearing comfort

Palladium is visually very similar to platinum. It offers you a gray-silvery shade with a high color fastness. Palladium is very robust and scratch-resistant. These properties make it the ideal precious metal for rings that you want to wear every day. Compared to white gold and platinum, ring made of palladium are lighter and are therefore very comfortable to wear.

Platinum - solid exclusivity

Platinum is one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals in the world. It gives rings that seal the bond of marriage a very special symbolic value. Rings made of platinumlook very noble with their gray-silvery color and are suitable for both simple and elegant and modern ring designs. And a platinum engagement ring in particular becomes an impressive statement thanks to its exclusivity. Just like rings made of palladium, platinum rings are extremely suitable for everyday use and color-fast. They do not rub off even over many years. Thanks to the high-quality alloy that AURONIA uses, platinum allergy sufferers are very skin-friendly.

Silver - a wide range of design options

Silver has been used to make jewelry for centuries and is considered a budget-friendly alternative to white gold. With its silvery sheen and its good malleability, silver offers many design options. To protect the rings from tarnishing, they are coated with rhodium at AURONIA. Rings made of silverare particularly light and offer you a comfortable fit even if you haven't worn a ring before. For example, compared to white gold, gray gold, palladium or platinum, silver is less robust and therefore more suitable for friendship rings.

What is the fineness and how does it influence the properties of the precious metals?

If you choose a precious metal for engagement or wedding rings, the question of its fineness also arises. It denotes the proportion of the most valuable precious metal in the ring. The fineness is given in thousandths. The higher it is, the higher the percentage of precious metal in your ring and the better its properties come into play. It is therefore generally advisable to choose the highest fineness that is available to you according to your budget.

The additionally added precious metals can strengthen the structure of the rings or influence the color. In any case, AURONIA only uses high-quality alloys without nickel and manganese, which are extremely skin-friendly and allergy-friendly.


The fineness of gold alloys

In gold alloys, the fineness starts at 333 and thus with a gold content of 33.3 percent. This percentage of gold is particularly budget-friendly. However, the color tone of rings in yellow, gray and red gold is less intense than that of precious metals with a higher fineness.

With a share of 37.5 percent, the gold content is already higher at a fineness of 375. However, even with this fineness, the color is not as intense as with higher levels. With a fineness of 585, the gold content is more than half at 58.5 percent and the properties of the gold are already shown to advantage. This fineness is therefore recommended for your engagement or wedding rings.

If you want a high-quality gold alloy with optimal material properties, a fineness of 750 is the best choice. The share of gold is 75 percent and the golden color nuances come into their own.

Only a fineness of 916 is higher. Yellow gold shines particularly intensely, but this alloy is less robust and suitable for everyday use due to a lower proportion of strengthening metals.

The fineness of palladium rings

Palladium rings are also available in various grades. The proportion of palladium ranges from 50 percent to 95 percent. With a fineness of 500, half of the palladium rings consist of other high-quality precious metals such as silver. These make the hard palladium more flexible, making it more suitable for making jewelry. At the same time, the rings retain a high degree of hardness and are well suited if you are looking for rings that are suitable for everyday use. Rings with a fineness of 585 are also characterized by high color stability and stability.

With a fineness of 950, the palladium rings contain small amounts of high-quality copper, tungsten and ruthenium. This makes the robust palladium flexible enough for jewelry production, but retains its resilience and color fastness.


Platinum - valuable alloy in two grades

Ring made of platinum are available in a fineness of 600 or 900. With a fineness of 600, the platinum content is 60 percent. Rings with this fineness offer high color fastness and resistance, but are a little more budget-friendly than platinum rings with a fineness of 950.

With a fineness of 950, only small amounts of other high-quality precious metals are added to the platinum and its properties come into full effect. This fineness is also particularly popular with allergy sufferers.

High quality sterling silver

Silver with a fineness of 925 is also known and popular as sterling silver. With a silver content of 92.5 percent, it only contains small amounts of other precious metals. These help stabilize the otherwise relatively soft metal. formal dresses with sleeves

Which precious metal with which fineness you choose is entirely up to your personal taste. In addition to your budget, factors that you can include in your selection include the question of suitability for everyday use. After choosing the metal, you can influence the style of your rings with further design options, such as the gemstone setting, joints, steps and / or a personal engraving.
