For every couple that adores the thought of kids being in attendance at their wedding, there is another couple that dreads the complications that kids can bring. Neither group is in the right or the wrong for their feelings around children being in attendance. After all, it is your big special day, and your choice to have kids in attendance or not is your choice.

Many couples will end up going back and forth on whether they should have kids in attendance. In order to help you make a good decision, the wedding professionals at Oklahoma Bridal have constructed this blog to give you a guide on what to expect when inviting children to your wedding.

Should you invite children to your wedding:

●Avoid guilty feelings: If you have made the choice of not inviting children to your wedding, then you should not feel guilty. Do not allow anyones thoughts or opinions to change your final decision. You will find yourself inviting everyone's kids to your wedding if you and your spouse do not stand by your decision.
●Mention it on wedding webpage: Your wedding website is a great place to share important wedding information. Because of this, your wedding website will make a great place to share information about children being accepted at your wedding.
●Be prepared for parents to leave early or not attend at all: Some may be upset if you do not allow kids at your wedding. This is due to the fact that some may have to leave early to tend to their kids or they may need to hire a nanny. Many may not accept this idea and would rather not attend.
●Invest in a chaperone: If you choose to include kids in your wedding, then it may be a good idea to invest in a chaperone. This will make things simple because the kids will be under control by a responsible adult.
●Find a way to keep children entertained: Children tend to get bored during weddings. Afterall, children are always going to be children. Because of this, it is important to keep them entertained as well as the guests. This could be by having a separate children's area for them or offering children friendly games that they can partake in.

Whether you choose to include children in your wedding or not is up to you. This is a personal decision that you and your spouse should make and stand by. There is not a right or wrong answer to this decision because both hold their own pros and cons. Are you in search of planning assistance for your big special day?
