How to Include my 4month old into my wedding ceremony/reception?

July 6th, 2011

me and my boyfriend had a baby unexceptionally at the age of 21 and We are still deeply in love even after the baby. Then he proposed and of course i said yes now we have a dilemma of what to do with My Little Princess we planned to have her picked up at 7:00pm at the reception
I definitely want her there for the ceremony if you haven’t noticed.

    A 4-month-old baby really doesn’t need to be at your wedding ceremony. Babies cry and you don’t want to be tending to her when you should be saying your vows. Do yourself a favor and get a sitter for her. If you insist that she be present, at least wait until your reception. Hire a sitter for the day and have her bring the baby to the reception but still tend to her there so you don’t have to.

    Your baby really is too young to have any formal role in the wedding. You can dress her up prettily and let the guests ooh and aah over her at the reception.

    Personally, if it were me, I’d leave My Little Princess at home for the whole day.

    Well… Options would be…

    1) Don’t have her there at all and just get a babysitter for the day. This is an option because, she’ll either sleep the whole ceremony or she’ll be awake and there’s a high chance of her crying. Then someone will be stuck with calming her so they’ll have to run her out and miss the ceremony. It’s not like she can be a part of the ceremony at 4 months old. Giving her a “job” would be slightly unreasonable.

    2) If you’re insistent upon having her at the ceremony, hire a babysitter to attend the ceremony as well so she can hold her. This way, if the baby gets cranky, nobody of importance will have to miss your ceremony in order to calm her down. Then the babysitter can take her home after pictures and you can have a baby-free night.

    Geeze, Don’t these other people see that obviously you’d like your child in your wedding in some way?

    I think that’s sweet, even if she is really young. Maybe have your or his mom walk down with her in their arms when they get seated.
    You could even get a pretty blanket with something embroidered into it, like your wedding date or her name or something cute on a white silk trim blanket? Make it like a grand enterance lol

    Congrats on both your new baby and your wedding 🙂
