Hi East Side Bride!
I did a search through your archive and found this article, but it doesn't quite help me out.
My partner and I didn't write anything about having a child free wedding, we just made sure people knew about it. Neither my partner or I have any nephews or nieces and few of our friends have children so it seemed we were going to be home free!
Unfortunately it seems that my Uncle and his partner are bringing their baby with them (baby is nearly 1 year old) from New Zealand (we're getting married in Australia) and as excited as I am to meet my newest cousin, I am not at all happy with him coming to the wedding. My parents think I will cause unnecessary family drama by offering to arrange a babysitter for them considering they've come so far to attend my wedding. I asked a friend with a similar aged child how she'd feel and she thought it would be okay, but apparently family like drama.
Are my parents correct, am I being childish by desperately not wanting a baby at my wedding? I am definitely not much of a child person, and every wedding I've been to that has children at it has been interrupted by one of them screaming during the ceremony - something I'd be really pissed off about. I've been very chilled about most things with this wedding - it's just a big party that I happen to be getting married at right? Well, I don't invite children to my parties so why should I have to have one at my wedding?
What do you think?
ONE BABY will not ruin your wedding. You're gonna be so blissed out you won't even notice the thing.
