Your wedding day is something very special; both spiritually and for your own new life you will begin. So making the guest list is one of the hardest things to do. Why is that? Because you do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings and because you are on a budget. This means you need to cut expenses and this means you need to cut people off the list. However, many of those you want to invite have kids. So here comes the question: ‘Do kids count on the wedding guest list?’
This question has a very simple answer. As long as they are able to sit on a chair, at a table, and eat with their own hands, then yes, kids do count on the wedding guest list. Therefore, if you really want kids at your wedding, you should count them and pay attention to the venue’s requirements. If the venue says it can host only 200 guests, this means that kids are included in this number.
Now, another reason for which the answer to the question ‘Do kids count on the wedding guest list?’ is ‘Yes’, has to do with the food you will order. It can happen that the caterer you hired will make a discount and charge less for the kids’ menu. Not only this, but they will also prepare food that children will enjoy, so that you will be relaxed when they are eating at their table.
Having spoken about some of the reasons for which kids do count on the wedding guest list, let us see a little bit how you welcome your kids at the wedding. First of all, you include them in the invitations you send. Second, you ask at the venue to set a table especially for them. If they are very little, you can hire a baby sitter. You will think of different favors for them than those of adults’ and that would be about all.
Since all is set for those kids who do count on the wedding guest list, the only thing for you to do is to count them, talk at the wedding venue about their table and chairs, talk to the caterers and let the event take its course.11
