    Wish we married before having kids

    No regrets - married after first baby

    Married after first baby - wish we waited to include the others

    No regrets - loved having all our kids there

    I wanted to get married before kids, and my reasoning is stupid (honestly!). My DH was born before his mum and stap dad were married, so he is in the wedding photos. His younger sisters are not. My cousins have the same- one child in the pics and not the others… In my mind we wither got married before kids or after we were done having kids, not after one… and that would have meant waiting a while.

    Kids at weddings are cute. They are also cute at birthday parties and other family events without the stupidly large expense of a wedding… 

    I can’t tell you what to do, but we got married first as getting married made us feel like a family, with or without children.
