There are several hot button issues associated with any wedding and today, we’re tackling The No Kids Issue. Specifically, why it’s NOT ABOUT YOU if you’re invited to a wedding but your kids are not. Here’s the deal, I adore kids and we had tons of them at our wedding. But it was easy and totally possible for us to do so. The wedding was at our house, outside, and featured a simple buffet catered by us. Lots of room for the kids to play and run around safely and no dealing with a kid’s menu. But other people’s weddings aren’t like this and many times, their hands are tied on the whole kids at the wedding issue.

So you may need to consider delegating some of the projects to family or friends. But how? Here’s so tips and advice for delegating your wedding’s DIY projects from some great wedding bloggers and my own experience.
Getting married doesn’t have anything to do with having a wedding. The actual act of getting married is pretty basic and simple (see how to get married in your state here) and requires a little paperwork and no fanfare. But having a wedding? ANYONE can have a wedding (The Boy and I had two!). Which begs the question – why have a wedding? Well, I can only speak for myself but I loved having a wedding since it was an excuse to gather up friends and family I rarely see and have a great party.
