If I had a child, I’d definitely want them there! No question about it.

Our daughter is going to be our flower girl…and a lot of our friends have kids, so we’re inviting them. We’ll have activities for the kids, and I’m considering hiring a child wrangler so the parents can have fun without chasing them around all night!

I have been at quite a few weddings where the couple already had children and the children were ALWAYS present.

Here is a pic of a dear friend and her hubby on their wedding day with their three ADORABLE girls!

@trueblue14:  The littlest one’s face/pose is precious! 

 

When one of my cousins got married, he and his now-ex-wife already had one child together. He wasn’t very old so he wasn’t old enough to be in the ceremony, but he sat in the front with his grandma. At one point, he even toddled his little way over because he wanted to see what mommy and daddy were doing. It was so cute!

I didn’t want children at my wedding other than my ringbearer and flower girl, but I also don’t HAVE any children of my own–if I did, of course I would have wanted them at the wedding. 🙂  Weddings are about the family you’re creating with your husband, so having your children be a part of your wedding only seems natural to me.

While it is true that not everyone has kids before marriage, many, many people do!

And whether she is 1.5 or 2.5 years old, she will not remember unless she sees the wedding pics and believe me, it is so commonplace that she will not find it unusual at all.

Not only is my 12 year old my only attendant we have written her into the declaration of intent, vows and are doing a ring exchange.

I can’t IMAGINE getting married and not including my daughter.  This is a HUGE change for her as well.  and also for my FI who will now be committing to being a parent. 

We are creating a FAMILY.  It’s more than just me vowing to spend my life making him happy and him vowing to make me happy.  WE are vowing to keep our family together, happy and strong.  And my daughter is committing to accept our love and support.

I think it’s really sad if you don’t have them there.

They will ask you why when they are older.

Why would it be weird if your kid was there? I think it would be extremely weird if she WASN’T there. I don’t understand why it’s even a question…

My fiance & I also had a child sooner than we expected. He will be our ring bearer and although we did things backwards, I’m excited that our son will be able to share the second most important day of our life with us.

@Moomin:  +1  I think it’s really, really weird to not have your own kids there.  It’s fine to not invite other people’s kids (I am not a fan of kids at weddings) but it’s YOUR child, they should definitely be there!

@babylexii:  She’ll be adorbs in a little white dress!!  It’s important for everyone that she be there 🙂  I think you would regret it if she weren’t in the pictures and memories of such an important day for your family!
