What do you guys think of having no kids as part of the wedding entourage? No flower girls or ring boy?
We thought this would be a way to cut costs: no spending on their outfits and gifts.

Perfectly fine! I think it’s great if you have someone the right age for those jobs that you really want to include, but if not, those roles will absolutely not be missed and many couples choose an “adults only” wedding, including the wedding party.

I think it’s perfectly acceptable to leave children out of the wedding party. It’s your wedding, do what you want. We’re not having any kids at our wedding or reception.

I was a bit worried that having no kids in the Wedding Entourage would take away from the livelihood of the group, but every bit of cut-back helps our budget 🙂

Thanks CE! I didn’t want kids at our reception either… especially since a lot of the kids are loud crying toddlers (we have abou 20 coming)… but it was not an option to leave them out 🙁 Lucky you!

If you don’t have any kids that you are really close to, I can’t imagine a reason you would HAVE to have them.

Not necessary and I’m sure they won’t be missed! Everyone "awww’s" when the kids walk down the aisle but they are all just waiting for the bride to make her entrance. Plus if the kids are too young, they can be distracting.

I cant imagine my wedding without my 6 nieces and nephews; they’re very dear to me, I may have just my sis as my Matron of honor and make all my nieces and nephews as ring bearers and flower girls

MY niece is adorable! I love her to pieces! But i don’t think it was needed for our wedding. Not that i didn’t have her dress bough before she was born and took tons of photos with her. I’m glad we didn’t have children in ceremony , it worked out just fine for us. Go with your gut girl!

We don’t have any children in our wedding party. We’re not inviting anyone younger than 16, so I didn’t want to send mixed messages to our guests by including them. I don’t think it’s necessary to have kids in the wedding party. Whatever works for you is totally okay!

We’re not having any children in the wedding party and we’re not having any children younger than 16 at the wedding, so I think it’s fine! I went to four weddings last year and none of them had children in the wedding party either.

You can do whatever you want. There are no rules to a wedding…just traditions. Sometimes we don’t even know why we follow traditions. So whatever works for you will end up being the perfect thing!
