Obviously this is a very personal choice. So I will only tell you what happens at each type of wedding. So you can make you own decision. A wedding with children at it should have something for them to do. Asking them to sit there and be quite for hours is just not going to happen. They will start running around and playing with other kids. If you don’t have an activity for them, they will talk during your speeches and run up to you during your first dance. I love children so for me this is not a problem. But for some this maybe a deal breaker… Guest at your wedding tend to drink less if children are there and will leave early with their kids. For weddings with out children, Just imagine any night out with the girls/guys.
