I know it’s hard not to, but DON’T feel bad about your decision.  Make sure to stick to your guns!  In the end, you will be very happy that there wasn’t a kid crying during your vows or destroying the cake, because for real, it happens.  No matter how much parents insist, there is always a possibility of kids acting out.

I think you should go over in your head what you think the WORST case scenario.  Then, think about how you will deal with it if it happens.

 

For example: Worst case scenario — a kid cries during your vows.  How you will deal with it — you will be so happy to be marrying your one in seven billion that you won’t even care!

@Pearberry:  I do that when I am really worried about something so I can kind of…show myself that I can handle it, so I can stop worrying.

Perhaps it’s because I’ve consumed a smidgen too much Moscato tonight, but I say phooey on them!  It’s your wedding – have it EXACTLY how you want it.  Trust me, you’ll have PLENTY of time after the wedding to think of the “could of, should of, would of”s and this doesn’t need to be one of them.  🙂

I think you can have any type of wedding that you want but you also have to be prepared for others not to agree with your choices for whatever reason. As long as you are prepared for that and not hold it against guests or complain about their choice when they decline the invitation then stick to your guns. If you don’t think you will be able to handle the disappointment of declines or the possible family talk then maybe rethink your position.

Stick to your guns but if a kid is brought trust me its not the horror storries your expecting. We had 15 kids between 15 months and 14 years of age and they were incredibly quiet even better than the adults (except for one girl whispering a question when we went to sign the documents). One thing I tell everybudy is try to make sure the wedding isnt on the same day as kids birthday whom you are not inviting (I still hold a grudge to this day to my moms favorite cousin).

My family is giving me SO much grief about not inviting kids. My aunt even had her granddaughter corner me at my bridal shower this weekend to ask why kids aren’t invited! But I just stick to my guns and FI backs me up. Kill them with kindness!!!
