Should you have children in your wedding party?

Although small children can be a complete joy, if you choose to include them in your wedding party, you need to expect the unexpected. Even the most well behaved child, who has been a perfect angel during rehearsals, can sometimes add an unexpected twist to your ceremony. Some children understandably will experience “stage fright” upon seeing all of the guests at your ceremony. They may also be having just an off day.

Choosing to include children can be an absolute delight, adding their cherubic faces to your wedding photographs, but if you prefer to be in complete control of your plans, then you might wish to reconsider having children in your wedding event, no matter what their age. In the end, it’s your wedding day and only you can decide what is best for you.
