I know there isn't a requirement. Until our FG's parents mentioned it we hadn't really even though of it. However, when they asked we were very happy to agree!If the children get upset it will be something that will have to be handled regardless of if they are in the wedding ceremony or not. Both sets of parents are in it and someone will have to watch them. As a PP said the grandparents may not want to have to handle an upset child instead of watching the ceremony so a babysitter may happen anyways.I would rather pay a qualified babysitter $40 for a couple hours in case of necessity than have anyone feel they have to leave our ceremony to console a upset baby.
Well it didn't bother us that they asked. Like I said we adore her and just hadn't really gotten that far into wedding planning. I mean yeah if we never talked to them or saw them I would be a little taken aback but when they did it it was more like "Oh my gosh, Laney could be your flower girl!" and I was like "YEAH!" because we are extremely close.Unlike my cousin who has 3 kids who are pre/teenagers(12-16) and a few weeks ago she was like "so what are my kids going to be doing for your wedding" and I replied "nothing" because I never see them or even really know the kids. That was awkward.
@Jen4948It never occurred to me how it couldn't work. I never had any negative thoughts or feelings about it until I got on here and heard some valid points like the crying and the walking thing. We just got engaged in November so the planning just hadn't gotten that deep into it. I was just worried about the RB because we knew he wouldn't be able to walk. So saying it wouldn't work for us wasn't really a thought at that point.I understand. I'm just saying how I myself might have handled a similar situation. All the best! (Sorry for the quote box)
