Kid-Friendly Wedding Menus for Reno & Lake Tahoe

We are often asked by our soon-to-be Lake Tahoe brides and grooms how to make their wedding a little more kid-friendly. After all, they don’t want their sweet ring bearer or flower girl to feel left out of the party fueled by dancing and champagne. 

To make the day even more special for the kiddos, we recommend crafting a kid-friendly menu full of snacks, dinner and dessert. For starters, we love fueling the ring bearers and flower girls with pre-ceremony snack. We fill their snack tray of ham and cheese slices, crackers and our favorite fruit kabobs with plum, pear and peach chunks. And of course, plenty of napkins come with the tray, we wouldn’t want anything on their fancy new outfits before pictures! 

During dinner, meals kids are familiar with will keep them satisfied through speeches and get them ready for the dance floor. For one special wedding, the kid table was served handmade chicken tenders with ranch, grilled vegetables, and homemade white cheddar macaroni and cheese. 

We also love giving the kiddos an alternative to wedding cake or fancy French macaroons. The unanimous kid pleaser (and adults too) are our root beer floats! They’re such a sweet treat for those warm Tahoe nights. 

Along with kid-friendly wedding meals, we also love seeing the bride and groom treat the kid table with favors. Coloring books and crayons, Legos and bubbles are always quite the hit!
