    We did, and it was fine.  It’s by no means necessary, but if you want to have them, then have them.  We had older children for ours (they were both about 9), to alleviate the problems that usually arise with children in the wedding.

    We are having my niece as the flower girl, but I really didn’t want to because she’s annoying and doesn’t behave.  If you don’t have little ones that you’re close to you don’t have to have them in your wedding.

    i didnt want to,but my brother(3 his kids)really wanted them,so i did.i should have know better.the kids were great,there mother on the other hand is a nut and uggggh cause so much drama at my wedding i waited 20 years for i wanna cry,i did cry.anyway if you dont want kids in your wedding,trust your gut,i wish i didnt.not because of the kids behavior,but their 30 year old mothers behavior.but even though that happen i still had a beautiful wedding♥

    no flower girl.  one because we do not have any little girls on either side of the family 

    we will be having a ring bearer, bible bearer, and a lil boy carrying a “here comes the bride sign” because we do have three little boys in the family that we could not imagine our day without.

    Totally not necessary, unless you want them. 🙂 We didn’t for a few reasons: 1. We requested an adult-only reception (besides DH’s nieces, nephews and my 4 first cousins) which made me think it was a little weird then having kids in the wedding, and 2. DH has 9 nieces and nephews (I didn’t have any at the time but did have a 6 year old Godson/cousin) that I didn’t feel right only picking out a few to have a role while the others didn’t.

    My youngest son is 4 and my youngest daughter is 15 months, and we wanted to include all of our kids in our wedding so they were our ring bearer and flower girl, but if we didn’t have little ones in our lives that we were close to then I don’t think we would’ve had a ring bearer or flower girl.  That being said, little ones make an adorable addition to your wedding party and can create some truly amazing photo opportunities!

    Absolutely not, our wedding is a Destination Wedding (for everyone but my Fiance and I) and in downtown Boston, there isn’t anything for children to do at an “adult” downtown wedding weekend.  The only “child” we might have is a 7 month old (one of my bridesmaids is pregnant) but even then I’m hoping she leaves the baby with family/a sitter.  Everyone else is over 18 at the minimum (my sister, 18, will be the youngest guest)
