On principle, if it says no kids, I don't go.

I am seriously thinking of banning children from my wedding...ruins the atmosphere...
#7

Anyone masochistic enough to get married should allow kids there.

On a serious note any weddings ive been too have all had the reception brightened up by the antics of toddlers, especially when they try to dance!

#10
We on about the wedding or the reception here? Coz i have one a "no" and one a "yes".
#11
i doubt a child would care if they werent at the ceremony - mine would probably find it boring!

if it was me i'd take her, but stand somewhere where you could take her outside if she got noisy and was likely to disturb things :-D

I understand your problem, but think you have to honour their wishes...they have paid a stack of money and what their day to go perfect.

I agree :)
If the wedding is anything but a fake glitzy sham then it's a family occasion - that includes the children of freinds and family. That said parents should be considerate enough to keep their children under control or not to bring them! Everyone understands restrictions when numbers are limited but the Bride / Groom should explain why.

I agree you can't just turn up with children if asked not to; I'd explain your childcare problem to the bride/groom and if the issue is numbers at the reception perhaps just turn up to the ceremony rather than stay away all together.

after a while parents become deaf to their children so they dont do a thing...

my GF would like a nice wedding and I would like a classy one.

I took my sister, her husband and their two daughters (2 and 4) out for a really nice meal to celebrate my graduation and my new job (set me back £500 at the end of it) the food, service and setting were excellent but the kids really ruined it... and I love my nieces to bits... i'm sorry but I dont want a similar affair at my wedding...tbh
#18
I feel in an arkward position, there is only my mum (who cant really look after her due to illness) and my sister who really doesnt like looking after kids especially my youngest as she is really mardy. It is poor as she could if she wanted. No i feel like i wont enjoy the day which ever way i look at it as i will be worried if she is there and worried if she's not. One thing is for certain though, i wouldnt let her make a noise and disturb anyone, i would be right out the door with the slightest murmer.
Original plan was to get mum to have her during church bit then take her. One thing is for sure is that im not deaf to the noise, more the other way, they only have to make a bit of noise and i take them away

I agree - family is what its all about. Having said that, any child over the age of 4 should know how to behave itself and parents with children under that age should be ready to take them outside if they start getting noisy. IMHO:roll:

I dont blame people if they dont invite kids as i have been in the position lots of times where if you invite one lot you end up with double on the list and where do you stop.

It's not deafness........it's the line between them being kids and being naughty.

If my kids aren't invited then i don't go..........i know where my priorites lie.....and no-one is more important than my kids. :)
#23
i wouldnt want kids who cant behave at my wedding so would be a bit confused as to what to do,
would prob just allow kids to the evening do would like to put well behaved kids only but would prob pee some people off!

some kids just cant behave,im all for kids having fun but some kids just dont know when enoughs enough!

Totally agree Sy

sorry no way I would go to wedding if my children wern't invited.

I would have been gutted if anyone thought they couldn't have brought thier kids to mine. We had the best day ever.
#26
We had kids at our wedding and they were all wonderful, their parents kept a close eye on them and they certainly didnt ruin the day they actually added to it. A wedding should be a funfilled family occasion IMO, a time for all generations to get together from both sides of the family.
I have been invited to a wedding where children were not allowed and to be honest it was pretty dull!

OK sorry i just meant general occasions that i have had problems ie. Christenings- 3, wedding- 1
#28
Depends dunnit, if the kids are well behaved and are going to sit like their mouths are gaffered up then no prob, but badly behaved kids who run riot and ignore their parents...no chance!
#29
We didnt invite any children apart from our own and the bridesmaids to the reception, although we had loads of children at the service itself, including all the members of the childrens group I ran at the time. We planned our wedding service knowing the children would be there and packed in loads of active songs for the kids and had the bible reading read in an interactive way. There were party poppers and bubbles too. We served drinks and cake at the back of the church while we were having photos taken.
All the kids then went home while the adults moved onto the evening only reception and had a relaxed time without the worry of handling tired and bored children. We have been to loads of weddings where young children who are bored and tired have ruined the reception, we really didnt want to go there, and thought that this was a good compromise.
Most of our family and friends agreed they would rather not bring children as they could relax more and not worry about keeping their kids under control.,

Personally, I wouldn't have any party without my kids, little sister, nieces and nephew there. If any of them were missing then I'd be absolutely gutted. I went to a christening on Sunday and was a little worried about my son, but the church had a little creche room at the back and they said that the kids were welcome in there, so he was quite happy playing with the toys in there, but had he have started making a noise, I would have taken him out straight away.

As for weddings, I think children should be invited as yes, they are young and can be noisy, but they are also part of people's family which in my eyes is like asking one family member and not another. It's down to the parents to be responsible and they should have the decency to take the child out of the room for a bit if he/she starts getting too noisy or upset. At the last wedding I went to, my little girl outdanced and outlasted me !! I was shattered by about 10pm but she was still dancing away with most of the guests and carried on until 11pm when she came over and fell asleep on my knee. All of the old people were loving having a dance with her :-D
