Wedding Etiquette Tips 15


To invite children to wedding or not?
There will be a time when you start compiling the wedding guest list, and the thought of inviting children can be quite a dilemma.

So whether to invite children to your wedding or not? Or they should simply stay at home? Before you make that decision, it is good to know that it’s not an offence to not invite the children; as wedding banquet are really expensive to hold, it is wise to stay on with your wedding budget. But if you can afford the children to come, that will be great for your guests as they don’t have to look for a nanny at the last minute.

It is always a good practice to book a small separate room during your wedding ceremony or wedding reception to house the kids. Have an experienced person to handle the children so that you will not have annoying children running around during your wedding ceremony. Even the most behaved child’s patience can be tested during a wedding ceremony as they will not enjoy them as the adults do.

You will also not want a crying baby to ruin your dream wedding. But then again, not all parents are willing to leave their children with someone else, so it is a good practice to have the bridesmaids or the groomsmen to advise the parents to take their children outside if they start to get excited or started to cry.

It will also be good to brief the bridesmaids or the groomsmen that if such scenario happens: eg. the parents are still not doing anything to stop the disturbance to the wedding service, have them run over to their table and politely ask them to take their children outside.

But most parents are sensible enough to agree that noisy children is a distraction to the wedding service, and who doesn’t want a perfect memory of their wedding being recorded on video.

Having all said, please do not forget to include a map in your invitation. As not all of your friends and family stay in the same area as you do. Some of your guests come from a far distance to grace your wedding, to be clear of all their inconveniences, it is good to include a clear map of major roads and famous landmarks, if any. Telephone numbers of hotels should also be printed clearly. You can even assign a person to receive phone calls from your guests so happens if they are lost.
