- Wedding: May 2016
As I say to everyone, it is your wedding and your day. Do what you want. However…
I know my ring bearer is probably going to scream all the way down the aisle and I am okay with that. We will laugh about it later and I will probably laugh at it during the wedding. Our relationship isn’t perfect and our marriage won’t be perfect either. No one’s is. I’m sure my 2 year old (and I mean TERRIBLE 2 year old) will cry at everything during the reception and that’s okay with me. He’s a baby. I CANNOT tell his mother how to discipline her child. But it’s honestly okay. 10 years from now, when I am sitting next to him looking at my wedding album, I would feel terrible explaining that he wasn’t there because I didn’t want to hear him scream. Even though I probably missed out on perfectly good photos of my nephew and I in my wedding dress that will never happen again. If a baby starts crying during a toast, oh well. Your day is not ruined…I promise. I also would feel bad making people find babysitters for their kids so they can come. I would feel worse if those people missed my reception because they can’t get a babysitter.
Honestly, some adults whine more than children. But again, it’s your day. You can do whatever you want. Your reception will be full of dancing and food so they will have plenty to do.
