I had kids both in the wedding and at the wedding. i absolutely love the energy and all around cuteness they brough to make my day even more special! One of my nieces was one of my flower girls, look at her, how could she possibly have done anything but made the day more magical!

There were no kids crying or misbhaving through the ceremony and it was so much fun watching them build a straw forst after the ceremony out of our straw bale seating! I also loved watching them dance and just running around having fun. Granted I had a casual outdoor wedding that made it easier on them.

Spectacular! I’ll share mine as well. We had 150 total guests including 8 babies under 1, 4 toddlers, and about 4 gradeschool kids. We had an outdoor ceremony with nowhere to go if kids started crying. We hired a couple babysitters (the ladies that run the nursery for my dad’s church) and they watched about four kids at my Dad’s house during the ceremony. The rest just sat with their parents at the cermony and we heard not a peeo. And our ceremony was about 40 minutes. The kids ran around and played during cocktail hour, then ate the buffet that everyone else had, the danced their hearts out. A lot of the babies were for bridal party, so we had invited their parents and they cared for the babies later in the night so that parents could part. The night away. It was awesomeand I think the kids contributed to the fun, festive, party atmosphere.

@SarahCF:  Perhaps because I’m at church most weeks, I don’t mind a bit of “kids noise” during the ceremony anyway. So long as no kid screamed (and at our wedding, none did), I was happy. I’m glad it went well for you too!
