Do Kids Belong at a Wedding?
You just got an invitation to a wedding. What do you do about junior?
Weddings come in all shapes and sizes. What’s right for one bride and groom may not be right for another.
The choice of whether or not to invite children belongs to those throwing the party, but sometimes parents get to make that call.
For my wedding, we decided to have a no kids policy. There were a few teen cousins, but that was it. Not every guest or family member was happy with our decision, but I don’t think everyone would have been happy if we’d decided to invite children either. It was a decision that worked for us and for our wedding.
Sometimes, the bride and groom leave the choice up to their guests. So, what do you do? Do you bring along a youngster, a toddler, what about a nursing baby? What if your child is the flower girl or the ring bearer? Do you arrange care for the child after the ceremony or do you include the child in the reception?
