The essence of the contest Baby at the wedding is that the main participants in the future performance in a pair play an imaginary child who performs all the commands of the host. Words are written in advance or the script is agreed with the actors immediately before the performance. Musical accompaniment and props are selected according to the image of the main character of the competition: a gentleman in a hat, as in the photo below, or a cool rocker - it all depends on your desire, imagination.
Props for the contest Kid
The main requisite for the contest Kid will be a screen, which is easy to do with your own hands. You will need a wide canvas of fabric measuring 1 m by 1.5 m and children's clothing. As a basis, we recommend using any cotton plain sheet in white or another discreet color.
A hole is cut in the canvas so that you can stick your head through the material, a bib, a vest, children's pants or a whole jumpsuit are hemmed from the bottom of the neck. It is advisable to choose children's clothes for the screen in bright, contrasting colors so that the hero of the performance is clearly visible to all guests. Additionally, holes for arms and legs are cut. A beautiful screen for a spectacular performance is ready.
For the wedding contest you will still need: a bottle, a nipple, a rattle, a hat, a toothbrush, a bonnet, balloons, a pot and a tray to effectively bring different objects to the stage.
A few minutes before the start of the scene, the participants prepare the hero for the performance. To perform the role, a team of 4 people is required: 2 artists - more often the bride and groom and 2 extras - young witnesses to hold the screen during the scene. If the main participants in the spectacle are newlyweds, then the groom throws his head through the neck in the canvas, and puts on his sliders (like gloves). The bride thrusts her hands into a gown sewn onto the sheet. Preliminary preparation is finished, the baby is ready.
A contest is announced, a melody sounds, and witnesses bring a screen onto the stage. To the first laughs of the guests, the music gradually subsides. The host begins his story, and the baby accompanies his words with actions. The proposal to put a cap on the groom's head explodes the room with laughter. The guests' fun is caused by any activity of the acting character. Various dance moves from hip-hop to the dance of little ducklings look good. Rehearse difficult movements in advance behind the scenes if improvisation is not your thing.
Explosions of laughter of guests evoke the words of the leader «Our baby learned to drink and eat himself!» and the bride’s attempts to get a glass in her mouth or feed the groom a snack. The active actions of the newlywed, who wants to help the narrowed one, look funny - from the side it looks like a baby is eating legs. The main thing is not to rush and pay attention to each action of the competition.
The scenario options can be different - it all depends on the nature, age, type of activity of the guests present. The real life story of the groom finds a good response, use the comic form of presentation. If a particular style is chosen for the wedding, then the competition should be held according to the general style of the festive event. Imagine yourself or take advantage of our tips..
The host announces: «Ladies and gentlemen! The kid came to visit us! Meet!»
«Our baby was born strong in the city of N. - the presenter continues the story. - «They called him Ivan (use the real or home diminutive name of the groom). Our boy shouted loudly and cried (the crying of a child is depicted), until he was given a pacifier (they make the props). Then he began to grow, learned to walk, wash, brush his teeth, dress» (the groom performs each action, playing and fooling around for the fun of the guests).
