My first “real” confession… is that I’d rather go to the doctor get shots, give blood, get 2 tattoos on my feet (again), and than head to the gyno rather than head back to the damn DENTIST. Literally I mean literally after all of my young years at the dentist, and than pre-teen and teen years at the orthodontist… I LOATHE the dentist, especially after my cap than scarred me for life….
Onto wedding anxiety happenings, I have a big family… no not big…. HUGE. My mom’s side alone NO kids…. 85 my dads side… around 40 also NO kids with kids it’d be around 80… yes EIGHTY. Plus friends, parental friends, le boyfriends family… It’ll be about 250-300 wedding. Awesome right? Ya that’s all with no kids.
Well what I’ve been pondering is what in the hell to do, about no kids, I LOVE KIDS. I love my little cousins, and of course my nephew, but having everyones child AT my wedding will cost me more than I’d care to spend on a wedding.
So the only kids that’ll be allowed at the wedding will be the children that are IN the wedding party. That’ll leave people upset, or wondering WHY they can’t bring their kids even though they are well behaved. Well unfortunately neither le boyfriend or I are millionaires nor are my parents. So the cuts will be no kids, I can’t do it. I won’t play favorites but I will have the kiddos in my bridal party, that I won’t back down. I already know who and that’s that. No more no less. I already know who is in my bridal party on the girls side adult wise.

Yeah, people are probably gonna be upset that they cannot bring their kids…but its NOT their wedding so keep still to your decision! They will get over it. At least you are still inviting everybody else. My husband and I, on the other hand didn't invite a lot of people (friends and family) included, because food was so darn expensive. Good luck with the planning! Always remember that this is YOUR wedding. You guys make the rules. Unless, of course, if your parents are paying for the wedding, then they can alter the rules themselves ahaha. Who's payin?
I always enjoy weddings without kids more- plus most people i know would rather not bring their kids so they can enjoy the night without responsibilities. I think you are good 🙂
See that's what I thought… parents night out no kiddos. I've had it both ways, never a friends with kids so I don't know. It was always family that had kiddos. 🙂 Thanks girlie!
Both le boyfriend & I are paying for what we can, my parents will be helping with the Venue for the most part. But everything else is us. I mean they could say they want the kids to come but with the numbers of adults already coming I am assuming that they'll see the reason of why no kids. Don't get me wrong I love kiddos, but the amount of kids is huge. We shall see what happens.
The kids would probably be bored at the wedding anyway. It gives the parents a break and keeps the kids from attending something they probably don't want to attend. 🙂
I think I'll just elope and go straight to the honeymoon LOL. That or hire a wedding planner to take care of all of it and surprise me. Of course I will have to pick my own wedding dress, I don't trust anyone out there to do it for me. Good luck with everything! I'm sure you guys will figure it all out 🙂
I hate the dentist too.. I probably haven't been in about five years….. Yeah, that really needs to change.
Wowsah that's a big family! Mine is huge, too, so I know how you feel. We're allowing only kids in the family and the kids have to be over 3, so basically no babies. I hope that doesn't make people mad, but we won't have a babysitter and my cousins can watch each other. To save on dinner costs we have a separate room for the kids to hang out and eat kid food during the cocktail hour and dinner, then come to the dance floor with the rest of the group once all of the speeches are finished. That… Read more »
Oh girl we should chat! Mr. HodgePodge and I paid for our whole wedding and kids were not allowed. You would think it was the end of the world. I even offered to pay for a sitter. My cousin, who I haven't seen in ten years was so insulted she couldn't bring her kids that her whole family didn't come. Really!? It's my wedding!! I have friends that are closer that aren't bringing kids!
Now following from Friends blog hop!
I was thinking with the same thing about kids (even though there wasn't many kids in either of our families). At the end of the day, it's YOUR wedding day & it's gonna be YOUR rules. I'm sure they'll understand…eventually.
