The big debate: children and weddings. Some think a wedding wouldn’t have the atmosphere without them, and others couldn’t think of anything worse than having a swarm of children ‘aeroplaning’ all over the dance floor. I think I’m somewhere in between..
As I’ve mentioned, David and I have a young daughter, Vivienne, and the wedding is around a week before her second birthday. My initial concern was that she would simply refuse to wear the gorgeous headband I have bought for her, the second was that she wouldn’t hold Evelyn’s (David’s niece) hand and be wary of walking down the aisle in front of the congregation, and the third was that she would have to wear a cream dress all day, bearing in mind that she enjoys rubbing banana in her hair and turning our dining room into a scene reminiscent of a chimp’s tea party. And then it dawned on me, the most important problem with children at weddings, especially young children, is trying to keep them entertained.
