Children at Wedding

Recommended Posts

I didn't really want kids at the wedding, he loves the idea of kids at a wedding lol. I have 10 nieces and nephews, plus most of my friends have little tots themselves now. He only has 1 nephew and several younger cousins between ages 8-17. So we compromised on choosing a family friendly resort so only our immediate relatives could bring their kids. At the end of the day it's worked out well so far. None of my nieces & nephews are going. Only his nephew will be going as he is the ring bearer, and the younger cousins won't be going as their parents want an adult only vacation. We did have a guest tell us she wants to go but will only go if she can bring her 4 kids along. My response was of course she could bring them but our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception are adults only save for the ring bearer. She & her hubby can hire a babysitter thru the resort or bring along a nanny. She said she'd think it ver, I thought I was fair in my response to her.

I actually wanted all the kids to come, but for most people it was too expensive to bring the kids (our resort has a crappy kids rate only $50 for the week cheaper then adult rates. So both of FI's sisters and both of my sisters are leaving the kids home with their husbands and enjoying a no kids week. The only exception is my sister is bringing my 8 year old niece and leaving my nephew home. And I will be bringing my 13 year old son (only cause I have to) haha!

We've decided to handle things more or less the same way. Both my FI and I have some young cousins (aged 7+), so we've included them on the invitations (it would be a huge issue if we didn't). But as far as our friends go, they all have babies (all < 3 years) so we've told our friends that the resort is family friendly and we'd love to see XY&Z in Mexico, but we're not having young, young children at the ceremony or reception. So far though, like I said in another post, it hasn't been an issue at all. Hopefully it stays this way :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
