Kids Keep Out?
Kids at a wedding. A topic which strikes up serious debate time and time again. Do you invite them? Don’t you invite them? Do you risk offending your friends who have kids if you tell them they’re not invited? Do you risk your wedding becoming a crazy creche if you do decide to ask them along? Tricky.
Of course, children at weddings has its draw backs. You have to allow for the occasional shriek during the ‘I do’s’ and you have to be prepared for your friends not being able to let their hair down quite as much as they would should they be child free. But you also have to consider how close you are to the children you know. Perhaps you have nieces or nephews or even your own children who are clearly on the invite list. If you don’t want too many kids descending upon you, perhaps you could just invite a handful; maybe just family. Alternatively, you could leave it up to the guests themselves. Tell them that kids are welcome but if they’d prefer to arrange a baby sitter and come along for a boozy, dancing until the early hours affair then that’s fine too. I’m sure you’d be surprised at how many of your guests would take the opportunity for a day/night off to be foot loose and baby/kid free!
How do you envision your big day? Could you think of nothing worse than organising a kids area and making do with highchairs dotted around at your wedding breakfast and pushchairs parked outside your marquee? Or would you embrace having a bunch of little ones running around, making everyone laugh, looking adorable and adding to the fun atmosphere of the day?
Hopefully these images will inspire you one way or the other!
