WHEN THE GUEST LIST HAS CHILDREN To host kids or not to host kids, that is the question. Some couples want to include children at the wedding because having the entire family present is meaningful, while other couples conclude involving children at the wedding could be a distraction. Regardless of your reasons, for or against, it’s advised either scenario is handled as follows: • With Children: Deciding to include children will require you provide a kids meal option. In addition, inquire about arranging crayons and coloring sheets to be placed where the children will be seated, to keep them occupied. • Without Children: For guests traveling with children from out of town, it’s common courtesy to provide child care resources. Whether it’s a referral or a web link to a list of certified caretakers in the area, make it easy for your invited guests to enjoy the wedding without a worry.

MAKE THE GUEST LIST EARLY Establishing a guest list early on is not only a priority, but it’s also a tremendous aid in the planning process. Crucial details revolve around the guest list—such as invitation orders, catering estimates, chair rentals, engagement

to individuals who will receive a wedding invitation; otherwise it’ll seem like you’re just fishing for gifts.
