19 Polite Ways to Exclude Children at Weddings

Regardless of how you feel about having children at a wedding, you need to be 100% clear on it to your guests. Addressing an invitation to Jack and Sarah and assuming they won’t bring their son, will undoubtedly lead to misunderstandings.

Including Children

If you belong firmly in the group that believes the more children, the merrier, then let your guests know. Be prepared! Think about food and the seating arrangements. Are the children old enough to have their own table? Will they need to sit with their parents for the main meal? What activities will be available to keep them occupied? A table with drawing or building materials can go a long way to keeping them quiet during the speeches for example. Perhaps you are able to have hired childcare to entertain them in a separate room or tent. Most children aren’t interested in eating a proper sit-down meal so instead of wasting money on an expensive menu, consider having a child-friendly menu just for them. Is there room for them to run around and let off steam without running between the tables and being a nuisance?

They are not actual invitations but do let your friends and family know in advance that you are planning a wedding and give them plenty of time to book time off work and even book hotels or flights if they live further afield. They are often the first step to making it all seem ‘real’ and are of course a great way of spreading exciting news!...

Quarantine During Lockdown

We’ve loved reading the stories of all the virtual weddings taking place around the country with guests live streaming via Zoom, Facebook or some other app. From pets acting as ‘bridesmaids’ to cardboard guests & friends, to a maid of honour pronouncing the couple ‘still not married’ via video link. The big wedding may not be taking place just yet, but the love and sense of humour are still very much present.

Help, my wedding has been postponed!

Many of you were lucky enough to have got engaged to the love of your life in the not too distant past. Congratulations if that was you! You got all excited and started making plans. The date was set, and you invested time and money into planning your perfect wedding be that a small intimate affair on a beach in the Bahamas or a huge lavish function in a country mansion with hundreds of guests. Then you started hearing worrying news and suddenly we were being forced to take a pause from our work and way of life. COVID19 hit! We could see it as an opportunity to slow down and take stock of our lives. But for most of us it’s been upsetting and, in many cases, costly...
