Having a Kid-friendly Reception? Some Ideas to Keep Them Entertained!

Kids add joy to everything – especially weddings! By the end of my wedding, my friend’s 5 year old and my cousin’s 6 year old were besties. And when the DJ dropped “Gangnam Style”, they OWNED the dance floor. It was absolutely adorable!

Unfortunately, South Asian weddings are kid-friendly but often boring for them. Here are some things you can do to help out our little friends…and their parents!

1. Pre-place activities for them. They’ll be excited and their parents will appreciate the gesture too!

2. Designate a kid room, nearby the ballroom. Outfit it with games/activities and to really go the extra mile, hire a babysitter(s).
