Looking after the little ones...

Perfectly Practical Parties

Wedding crèches are a relatively new phenomena in the wedding industry but Perfectly Practical Parties Ltd has been working in the business for over 3 years and our reputation for excellence goes ahead of us.

Why recommend us to your brides? We provide:

• A safe environment for children to burn off energy without disturbing your staff;
• The ability for guests to book a room for the night knowing their children will be looked after until the end of the night;
• The opportunity for parents to spend more time socialising and relax with a few drinks while their children are being entertained;
• An outstanding customer service that will leave guests talking about the wedding for months.

What did our customers say?

Thanks so much for doing a fantastic job at our wedding. The kids had an amazing time and the parents were so grateful. In particular my friend with her new baby...it... was a massive deal to her so thanks.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to other clients so will be in touch hopefully with future events. Thanks again we were really happy with everything and I honestly couldn't give you any other points as the service and the games/toys you offered where above and beyond what I expected!
