The never ending debate: to include children in your wedding or to opt for an adult-only celebration? I’m not going to tell you which is best for you… but if you do decide that you’d like the muchkins at your shindig… I AM going to show you some of our best ideas to spoil them rotten! Prepare yourself for a truck load of gorgeous kid-friendly inspiration!
You may or may not know that one of my favourite ‘business people’ in Vancouver to have coffee with is the lovely Stephanie from Sweet Heart Events. Her sense of humour and passion for weddings make me love what I do even more (if that’s possible?). When she mentioned that she had been asked some questions about ideas for kids at weddings- we decided this would be the perfect follow up. Why just give you ideas when we can show you, in pretty, pretty photos? Everything you’re about to see was hand selected by Stephanie and I, and I could not be more proud of this session!
To make it even more dear to my heart, that sweet braided girl is my niece Stella (remember her from the Frozen Party?). This was also Bespoke Decor’s first feature at Style Me Pretty (surreal)! Stephanie talks a bit about what this shoot is all about over there if you’d like a read.
We started dreaming up this shoot based around our John Deere Truck… we wanted a lemonade stand and that gorgeous vintage trailer from Tin Can Studios. It all grew from there. The idea behind the shoot was not just to spoil the kiddos during the wedding (and keep them happy- which means happy parents) but to keep them entertained throughout the evening. We decked out the Tin Can with comfy blankets and pillows (and gifted each of the littles a personal favour- a teddy bear!) so the littlest guests would have a place to snooze while their parents killed it on the dance floor.
I don’t know if I have a favourite part of this session, friends! It was all crafted with love… but I have to say that those little cookie place markers are adorable… I’d like someone to mark my name at dinner every night in cookies. What’s your favourite part? Do you have any ideas for kiddos we didn’t think of? Spill!
