Wedding receptions are designed to accommodate adults. Therefore, children can get restless really easy, especially if the children are younger in age. So, give them something to do! Set up a play tent that matches the colors of you wedding and fill it with play clothes and props. Place a big mirror inside or outside the tent and watch the kids go crazy all night. You can also place games, blocks, and a comfy rug inside the tent to make it a great kid getaway!

Who Sits Where at the Reception

seatingThe bride and groom hold the two most important seats at the reception. Their table should be easily seen from anywhere in the room so all the guests can be witness to their expressions of happiness. The following diagrams offer suggestions for seating attendants and family members.

The Wedding Party
Traditionally, the table for the wedding party is rectangular, with seating on one side only, facing out, so the guests can see the couple easily; often the table will be on a dais. The table should be centrally located, and flower arrangements should be kept low so as not to obstruct anyone’s view.

If the table is round, the bride and groom should still face the room. The best man is seated to the right of the bride; the maid or matron of honor sits to the groom’s left. The remainder of the wedding party is seated outward from the bride and groom, alternating groomsmen and bridesmaids.


Parents of the Bride and Groom
At the most traditional hosts’ table, the bride’s mother sits in the center facing out, where she can keep close watch on the party; the bride’s father sits directly across from her, and the groom’s father sits on her right. The officiant may be seated to the left of the bride’s mother. The groom’s mother traditionally sits to the right of the bride’s father, with the officiant’s spouse to his left.

The seating arrangement above allows the closest relatives and friends of the bride and groom to join them at one table. The wedding party is represented with the best man to the right of the bride and the maid or matron of honor to the groom’s left. Traditionally, the male-female pattern continues around the entire table. Grandparents or siblings can be seated on the other side of each of the honor attendants. The officiant is seated to the right of the grandparent next to the best man; the bride’s mother is to the right of the officiant. On her right, the groom’s father is seated with the officiant’s spouse (if he or she has one) on his right. Finally, the father of the bride is seated to the right of the officiant’s spouse, while the groom’s mother is seated to his right.




Wedding Bell Ringer

A bell ringer is a great addition to any wedding. A bell ringer comes down the aisle either before the wedding party, or before the bride. Most often the bell ringer comes before the bride, and sometimes yells “The bride is coming, the bride is coming.” The bell ringer is usually a child around 2-8 years old. Bell ringers are a great option if you have many young children you want to include in your wedding. Bell ringers may also take the place of a flower girl or ring bearer. If you don’t  like the ring bearer tradition, or if you have a child that you think would enjoy being a bell ringer more, then this is a great option. One thing is for sure, the bell ringer is simply adorable and is sure to be a crowd favorite!
