The celeb world is abuzz with rumours that Hollywood’s golden couple – Brangelina will be marrying any day at their Chateau Miraval estate in France. Whilst I am not going to speculate on what the world’s most beautiful couple will be wearing, I have been thinking about how they might involve their brood in their Wedding planning and celebrations aside from being flower girls and page boys. As Angelina explained to Vanity Fair “Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It’s for life.”
So Angelina, Brad if you’re reading here are some last minute ways to involve the kids in your Wedding:
Bijou Brides and Grooms you could encourage your children to write a poem or give a reading at the ceremony, nothing could be more of a tearjerker for both you and your Wedding guests. But if they show a flare for performance how about a sing-a-long during the speeches started by the kids or a mini rock band moment to get the disco started. Could your kids compete with these two?
This is where you can let your kids’ creative juices run riot. Their sketches of you and your Groom or the whole family could be incorporated into a unique Wedding stationery concept. Or as a fun project leading up to the big day, the kids could draw a picture of each Wedding guest which could then be used as an escort card or table place setting.
Brad and Angelina have 6 children and could have a guest table for dinner dedicated to each child using their favourite colour, toys etc. They could even have the kids decorate their table with the assistance of an older family member of course. A less involved option would be to take photos of your kids holding big foam digits to be used in frames as your table numbers.
One of the best ways to involve the kids in your Wedding, have them make the favours. A family bake day would be a fun way to de-stress before the big day – cookies, chocolates, cake pops, lollipops all the scrummy things.
When if comes to your first dance as a married couple, why not switch half way through to a family dance with your children to joining you.
