My partner and I have taken the plunge, yes folks we’ve finally set our wedding date and booked our venue. How exciting?!
Iv been busily planning away, researching photographers, wedding cars, reception venues etc.
Then it suddenly dawned on me. We will be getting hitched with a 23 month old and a 6 month old in tow!
I started to think what would be the best option for our reception do.
I mean after all an almost two year old and a 6 month old have a routine and a set bedtime, how we would juggle this if we went ahead and had an evening do? All our family would be with us celebrating this happy occasion. Could we really ask one of them to leave the party early to take our children home and put them bed? Would they settle if it was someone other than mummy and daddy putting them to bed? Would I or my my partner have to leave to put them to bed ourselves? This is a dilemma!
Maybe we should just go for a simpler alternative. As we can only have limited numbers at our wedding ceremony it will be just family, therefore should we just book a nice three course meal for our family to enjoy after the ceremony? This would solve the bedtime problem as both me and Rob would be home in time to put the babies to bed ourselves.
Of course it would be nice to have all our friends and family get together for one big celebratory party, but then again a much smaller family do also seems like a good option.
Have you been faced with a similar dilemma? Or do you have any advice on what we can do? We really would love to hear from you. Please leave your comments below x
