No Children Wedding Not going down well with family
Hi all, I'm Debbie and I'm getting married to my boyfriend Alex on 28 Aug this year. My OH and I decided quite early on that we would prefer not to have babies/children at our wedding ceremony and breakfast but all were welcome to the evening reception. Our immediate families were fine about this, particularly my brother who has 1 year old twin boys, he said that he can't wait for a "day off" to be able to enjoy himself. We sent save the date cards when we got engaged in Nov 09 with a little note to all those with children about our decision, we didn't get any negative responses then, however we've just sent out the actual day invitations this month and what I'm now finding is that some members of our family are really not that happy about our decision, and are not coming to the wedding at all. I'm strangely more upset about this then I thought I'd be. I'm also worried now that we won't have that many people at our wedding. Trying to remain positive, but this is my special day, are we being unreasonable to expect our guests with children to be able to find childcare for one day?
