Wedding Planning

We’re getting real with you today. Should you have kids at your wedding? Whether this is a part of the wedding planning you’ve looked forward to for years, or the question you’ve been avoiding all along, it’s a topic that begs you to ask some hard questions. No matter what your opinion is, it’s totally valid! But in case you’ve been on the fence, it might be time to whip out an old T-chart for some pros and cons. Because at the end of the day, this is a decision you’ll want to be comfortable with. And nothing says solidarity in a choice like a good old fashioned list.
