    I haven’t followed the link yet (so for all I know this is already in there), but something else I’d recommend is giving them the tools to make something for the bride and groom. It doesn’t have to be messy (although you could have a kids’ corner with someone to watch over them if you wanted to go that route) and it’s something they absolutely LOVE doing because it becomes a gift.

    What a great idea! I wanted to do something like this for our wedding, but never quite got around to it.

    Love this! I have a couple of pages that I made (a word search and a maze) that were specific to my fiance and me but I’ve been wanting a few more pages to make a book. I will definitely be using these! <3

    Hi Gemma,

    I’m not sure what the font is… however, if you click the link for Lovely Indeed you may be able to find out information on the font. Good luck!

    something that kids love doing is paper flowers… They are slightly messy but its mostly just scraps of paper as all they need is scissors, paper, straws and stickytape. Making chatterboxes work well too. A deck of cards will never go astray with kids either they can usually find something to do with those. Balloons are cheap kid entertainers too.

    Great ideas, Sarah! I love the idea of paper flowers… plus, it ties into the wedding theme a bit, too. Thanks for stopping by!
