Yep. Just that really, youngest will be 5 months oldest will be 6 years and there will be 17 of them cries

The ceremony is in a village hall and will be followed by a buffet lunch

So far the ideas I have are - create a kiddie corner away from ceremony area and buffet area

Have low table with kiddie type food on (crisps chocolates cherry tomatoes juice cartons what else)

Have giant paintable tablecloth with those patterns you can colour in on floor

Lots of washable marker pens, drawing sheets, stickers of various kinds

Couple of playmats

A tent

Rugs and some cushions


Thinking of going to pound land for any toys

What else?

Thanks for any ideas!!

Hire a nanny/childminder or two, or three.

Don't invite the children until after the ceremony????

Unfortunately the guests all come from at least an hour away. We live in a town by ourselves and all family is scattered across other counties and most friends taking train up from London so not sure how the kids could be brought later

Perhaps just be prepared for interruptions and a bit of noise.
