- Wedding: November 2011
I’m still not sure why no one is responding to the reasons posted like…
I personally think those are legitimate reasons. Not “appalling” and not “Bridezilla.” And really not all that “selfish.”
I’m not sure why so many people feel like bickering about silly things this week, but can we agree to disagree on this one?
For those who want to invite kids to their wedding, that’s wonderful, and that’s your choice. But for those who choose not to invite kids, it’s also a choice on the part of those hosting the party.
Let’s keep this away from personal attacks or general rudeness, please. I know you’re all capable of being better than that.
Don’t care if there are kids or not but I HATE when babies start crying and interupt the service! Take the wailing little one outside!
I think what we’re talking about here is the result of a cultural shift as well as a basic difference of principle. The camp of “this day is about our union” and the camp of “this day is about our families and the community”. Both are correct, both are okay, and I think things are being taken a little too far here.
I would agree that most of the reasons cited are not selfish. You know what’s selfish?
Though I have extended family and friends as well who have children. But I am not going to be extending inviations to their children. I know that my friends with childen wont even for a second think of anything other than getting a sitter. I am the same way. We havn’t thought once about bringing our son with us to a wedding. Thats an event I rather enjoy as an adult night out. Wheather there are kids at weddings or not, doesnt bother me because I dont have to watch them. But I do agree that children can change the mood of a wedding if people are seping all over them constantly.
for me personally, I don’t care if the kids run wild…
my sister and I ran wild at quite a few weddings and those are very good memories for us.
It just depends on the people, I guess. and the venue…
