The big day is here. It’s finally arrived. Whether you’re the bride, groom, groomsmen, parents or parents who have children in the wedding, this day is meaningful and important. I wrote this guideline for how to be your best on wedding day many years ago, but it is still relevant today. It’s the little details that make a wedding day nearly perfect. This will be a five part series. Today, we’ll focus on how to be the best parents who have children in the wedding on wedding day.

Parents of Children In The Wedding

This really is a day when children should be seen and not heard. They are an intricate part of the ceremony, but the big day should remain about the bride and groom. That being said, you have a great responsibility to make sure your children are prepared and joyful come wedding day.

  • Be prompt.
  • Make certain that the children have had naps and snacks before arriving.
  • Dress the children at the wedding site to avoid wrinkles, dirt and accidents. Come prepared to dress them quickly and without interrupting the adults.
  • Do not force your children down the aisle. If they resist, move away and let the processional continue.
  • Have a small treat of some sort (non-food related) after they have completed their role.
  • If they are not attending the reception, whisk them away to the baby-sitter after the pictures have been taken.
  • Beam with pride if they did as told and accept all the accolades for your beautiful children… well done!

This is by no means an extensive list, but if you keep these in mind on wedding day, you’re well on your way to being the best parents of children in the wedding. 😉
