Fast forward forty five minutes later and the Bride & Groom are cutting the cake. After the pictures are all taken and toasts are all read, the bride leans over to me and whispers “Was that a finger hole in my cake?”…. “YEP… but I promise it will make for the best story later.” She laughed. Thank goodness.
1. Do not print “No Kids” or “Adult Only Reception” on the invite. Instead, address the invite to who you are inviting. For Example, “Mr. & Mrs. John Smith” instead of “Mr. & Mrs. John Smith & Family” or “Mr. & Mrs. John Smith, Sarah & Mike Smith”
2. In addition, you can speak with family and close friends and ask then to help spread the word.
3. Put it on your wedding website!
But what do I do if my Bridesmaid is traveling and has kids she doesn’t want to leave? An on-site babysitter! You can provide a babysitter, a pizza, some crayons, and a few movies… problem solved!
After I have asked for no kids, is it then acceptable to have a flower girl and ring bearer there? YEP :) Absolutely!! You can even have them join the babysitter after the ceremony (if you would like).
