Every wedding is unique :)
I could NOT imagine celebrating without my children ages 1 and 7. There will be a 1,2,4,5,8,10,13 and some more teenagers and about 22 adults.

I couldn't be happier. I'm planning on bringing a bunch of glow sticks, bubbles, maracas, tambourines, games, blankets, kids tumbler cups, fairy wands etc and just having a big blanket with all the goodies set up at cocktail hour.

For the adults... Well tequila :)

I'm doing passed French fries in tall shot glasses with ketchup at the bottom for the kids too!

So that's just how I'm doing it :)

My kids are looking forward to our wedding almost as much as we are!! Most of our friends have kids and are planning come coming with their families. The kids are so excited to be going on a week long holiday with their besties... They are going to remember it for the rest of their lives and it's such a wonderful way for them to remember the day that Mark becomes their step dad. There are about 20 kids coming so far! All around the same ages as our kids! I don't know who's parties are going to go later! Haha

Identical twin boys who will be 9.... I will also be gaining a step son who will 15 at the time... But he's in the awkward " I'm a teenage boy who is excited by nothing and just wants to sleep phase"...So he will be happy just to not have school for a week.

Oohhh that's you with the twin boys!! These forums get confusing! But I do love your boys being included I'm sure they love that. As for your step son.. Ugh teenage boys what can you do really?!?!

Definitely. Our 5 yr old daughter is so excited about being a flower girl. This is her first time on a plane and on a big vacation. We could not picture celebrating without her.
Good Luck :)

We don't have kids but I know some people would have been unable to attend if we said no kids. Who would watch over the for a week? Kids always make things interesting :). we don't have any flower girls or anything like that but I wouldn't stop couples from bringing their kids

Having no children of my own it's funny that I can't imagine my DW without the children in my life part of the celebration. I am Step-monster to a 19yoF, aunt, great aunt and favorite person in the world to others! Plus, I have dear friends who would not be able to attend if there were no kids. Sooooo,  I have created an activity book for them, will find some 'special job' for them during the weekend and have a special I Spy game for the reception. I'm thinking of some activity to keep them occupied while in the air. Bubble Yum for sure! 


Love over 50 is still LOVE!!!

Invitations out! RSVPs in

Us, them (bridal party), + 48 guests!!

This may sound a little harsh... children are invited to the DW, but we requested the wedding day to be for adults 16+ only. Our resort has a kids' club & childcare


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.
