Watch out for the 'I feel rejected' syndrome immediately after the ceremony
Where children tend to be left out is immediately after the ceremony. The bride and groom walk away and are crowded by 'big people' - with the children left out of the immediate post ceremony celebration. Remember most children do not know what they are supposed to do after the ceremony ends. This is easily avoided. The couple should simply take a moment to hug their child/children, thank them for helping in the ceremony, and then telling them they are free to play etc. This time of quality recognition is very important.
