Hi, I am Miss Barn and I am Polish. Why does that matter, you ask? Oh, because I have an insanely large family, that’s why. My father has 11 brothers and sisters who are all married with children, and even some of my cousins have children of their own. My father’s side of the family (immediate family) makes up a third of our guest list. That’s a lot of people. In our family children are always welcome to a wedding, and the Barn wedding is no different. There was no question that we would be having children at our wedding. There are a few reasons:
1. I don’t want K and R to be the only children and bored.
2. I love seeing kids tear up the dance floor.
3. Since all of our friends and family are traveling to attend, I wanted it to be easy for them.
4. I didn’t want to limit it to just the bridal party and hurt other guests’ feelings.
5. I love kids.
Now I understand that kids at weddings can be tough. Infants can cry. Children can get tired and cranky, so even though children are invited I still expect their parents to keep them in check. I am sure we won’t have too many problems with our guests, as they all have experience bringing their little ones to weddings. (My cousin K just got married last year, so it’s nothing new for them.)
