Kids at Weddings
August 24, 2011
So one of the most difficult decisions for me was that we decided not to have children at our wedding.
This was kind of a bummer for me, I love kids at weddings, it was not a decision taken lightly.
I mean seriously look at this flower girl… who wouldn’t want that!

I know many people have issues with weddings that set rules like this, I personally think people should do what is right for them at their weddings, I do believe that its their day!
When it came to our wedding, I found it more difficult and did actually want to think of others!
In the end it simply came down to costs, we were having our wedding at a city centre restaurant, we were starting at 5 and after a quick ceremony and dinner it was all about our party, not really a child-friendly day.
So I asked all of our friends and family to leave the kids at home, not because we didn’t want to see them we LOVE kids, more because we were having a party with drinks and loud music and wanted everyone to relax and have a good time… not worrying about their little ones or leaving because they were tired.
Ultimately a simultaneous selfless and selfish reason for not having them.
I am still gutted my God-kids won’t be there though, they would have made an amazing page boy and flower girl and melted everyone’s heart!
