- Wedding: May 2011
A little background first…..
Our Ceremony is being held in a National Park at the entrance of a cave opening (alot more beautiful than it sounds lmao) in order to get to the opening of the cave you have to go through the museum (street level) and take an elevator at the back of the museum; down 200 ft to the bottom. The Reception area is next door to the museum in a huge victorian home. I dont mind that kids come to the wedding but it REALLY gets on my nerves when kids act up or cry during exchange of vows or the sermon lol. More importantly the area isnt very kid friendly…. the side yard of the house has a small wrought iron fence along the side that connects right to the drop off for the cave. (think big cliff) Im just nervous for the children playing around outside. The home itself if very very old…. the lady that let us rent it for the day said that the glass in the windows of all the doors is over 100yrs old and cost over $1500 a piece to replace!!!!!!!!!!! I will just die if someone slams a door and knocks the glass out (she had that happen once!) ANYWAY… sorry for the ramble… I just dont know how to tell them its not a very kid friendly area. Im thinking of saying along the lines of “Please keep in mind this is NOT a very kid friendly area. Children are more than welcome to attend, however constant adult supervision will be required”
The museum is offering all my guest a cave tour free admission. its 45 mins long. I was thinking of having the guest take the tour as a “cocktail hour” while reception is being set up. Its very low impact, just some walking. Nothing major like crawling or fitting in tight spaces but what do I do with my guest that do NOT want to take the tour?
thanks so much ladies!
