We’re now turning to an issue that has led to many a family fallout when someone is planning their big day! Should you invite young children to a wedding?  

Are you planning your wedding? Are you stuck between whether to invite your second cousins’ children or putting in place a strict ‘adults-only rule’? 

Head of Content for Her.ie Niamh Maher is recently engaged and decided to write about the issue.

We were also joined by Caroline who is planning her wedding for September and has a strict 'adults-only' rule. Wedding planner Tara Fay gave advice for couples dealing with this dilemma.

Brian in Athlone chatted about the serious expense of bringing children to weddings and Tina in Wicklow whose daughter put her foot down in and didn’t allow any children at her wedding.
