    My H2B and me decided to have children at the wedding as he already has a son from a previous relationship.

    We already discussed this before our engagement, and we agreed to have children at the reception.

    We want to include everyone in this wedding

      We have decided to have kids at our wedding, right now it looks like there is going to be 5 of them in total. I am trying to include all of them in as much as I can and then for the adult only events (i.e. the stagette etc.) we have already talked to some of the grandparents about babysitting. To try and include them, I have made them their own welcome bags with beach items in it, all five of them will be in the wedding party and then have a blanket set off to the side with some activities so during the ceremony they can occupy themselves and finally I am making up "Cancun wedding adventure" coloring books for during the dinner. All five of them are generally very well behaved plus the oldest is going to be almost 9 and he has agreed to keep an eye on all of them throughout the wedding day. As for the rest of the trip our resort does have a kids club and lots of kids activities so parents can relax as well.


      My fiance and I looked at doing an adult only however we didn't want to risk not having our family and friends come down just because they couldn't find someone to watch the kids.

          Kids are technically invited to ours, however the timing is such that there shouldn't be any schools out for winter break yet!  It's harder for kids to be pulled out of school right after Thanksgiving vacation and before Christmas/Winter Break so we won't end up having any.

          My preference is no kids, but if it is the only way for someone to come, then okay.

          I put on our website that it's an adult only ceremony and reception. Luckily our resort has a kids club all day until 11pm, so child care would be taken care of!

          We chose an AI so no children will be on property. Fortunately for is there are no small children on either side of our families.

            My FI has a 9 year old daughter who is going with us. My best friend is bringing her two kids as well. It wouldn't be the same without those 3. They are our only kids going. At the AHR we will have our immediate family kids and no others.
