- Wedding: June 2010
My fiance and I originally did not want babies at our wedding — we have nothing against babies, but we’ve been to weddings before where a crying baby has really interfered with the ceremony. However, after thinking about it some more, we decided that if our friends wanted to bring their babies that would be fine with us — I can imagine how stressful it would be to have to leave your baby with a sitter, and our wedding is a little far too.
We haven’t sent out invitations yet, but today my fiance’s cousin emailed him asking about hotel accommodations. She also said, “we’re planning on bringing Baby, hope you don’t mind. I promise he won’t make a fuss at the ceremony or reception. He’s not eating solid foods yet so he won’t need a plate.” I know we were planning on “allowing” babies anyway, but I was a little annoyed by her email — what if we really didn’t want babies at the wedding?? And she didn’t ask if it was ok — just told us that they were bringing their baby.
I know it’s not a big deal at all (especially because we’re allowing babies!) and I probably sound so petty, but just needed to vent a little. 🙂 Thanks for humoring me!
