I truly believe that your wedding should be the way YOU want it. It’s you and your fiancés special day, and I don’t think anyone else should have that much of a say.

I’ve been hearing lots that friends and family are upset because children aren’t allowed at the wedding. I think if the couple wants it that way, they have valid reasons for it…And they should be respected for it.

Here are 6 reasons why you might want a childless wedding


1. Children get bored easily at weddings.

I can guarantee there isn’t a child that enjoys a wedding ceremony. I also think wedding speeches are probably dull for them.

2. Weddings are elegant events.

Having a wedding without children will allow your friends and family to have a nice relaxing “date” night.

3. Weddings are expensive, especially when children are added.

There are families that have a few children. You can’t invite some of their children, but not all of them. It makes for a sticky situation. If you plan on having a wedding without children, it makes the invite list that much shorter.

4. There won’t be any children crying or making noise when

you are saying your vows.

The only thing your guests will be focused on is you during your ceremony.  It will truly be your day.

5. Guests will be able to sit back and enjoy themselves.

Your guests will not have to always be worried about what their children are up to. Children are highly unpredictable, and without them at the wedding things will go much smoother for everyone.

6. Your cake, food and décor will be safe from children.

I’ve mentioned this before, I’ve seen children touch the wedding cake, taste the wedding cake, lick the chocolate fountain, put half eaten food back in the buffet…Without kids, you’re not going to have to worry about any of that.
