Kids at the wedding: things to consider
#1 – Budget. Let’s be real about cost right away. Weddings aren’t cheap, and neither is childcare.
Getting ahead of this kids-at-the-wedding-convo allows you to have an answer ready when people ask, that you already know you can afford.
#2 – This is YOUR day! You get to pick who attends the wedding – if this means kids, great! If not, that’s okay too. This is not about what your mother wants, this is not about what your bridesmaids want.. this is about what you want! People can get pushy about their kids at weddings. Having a solution in place early will avoid you being pushed into something that you don’t want. Trust us on this one.
#3 – Kids’ ages and the schedule. Kiddos under 4 will definitely get tired and crash early, especially if they have had a big day full of sugar and treats (read: can get loud or cranky).
#4 – Time with your guests. Will they be pulled away by parental duties? Spending the day (and getting undivided attention) with those you love is important. If this includes kids, great! If not, that’s okay too.
#5 – Attention and Focus. Nothing steals the spotlight faster than a toddler in a tuxedo or a flower girl on the dance floor. If you prefer the focus be on you and your partner, it should be (and it’s okay to say so). For real, we can help here.
