- Wedding: October 2014 - Vegas baby!
Hi ladies. My fiance and I are just starting our wedding planning. We’ve been together for over 3 years, have known each other (and dated as teenagers) since we were kids. We have been engaged since December. I was married once before. I got married at 21 and divorced at 25. I have two children from my previous marriage (ages 5 and 3).
My question is, we have really been discussing the thought of a destination wedding. Vegas to be exact. We have looked into it a lot and a traditional wedding just isn’t for us. When we get married, FI will be 31 and I will be 30. I’m not concerned with what our families will think, and neither is he really. My big concern is that it’s most likely going to be the two of us and maybe 2 close friends that go with us. Should my (our) children be there too??? Or since it is a Vegas wedding should we just treat it as a honeymoon type thing? For the time that we are in Las Vegas, my little ones would be staying with my parents.
Do you think this is acceptable? I feel kinda funny not including them in this, but we are planning to get married at the Paris Hotel, on a balcony at like 400 ft in the air! And it’s Las Vegas, not really kid appropriate. We include our children in EVERYTHIN in our lives, and I kinda feel like this is the one time that we deserve to do something alone as adults. What are your thoughts? Please help ease my mind that not including the children is the right idea.
