Young children have no clue what's going on during a wedding, but many parents insist on bringing them as an excuse for adorable family photos or to, of course, cut the cost of childcare. Even if a wedding isn't explicitly child-free though, if there's a chance that your baby might ruin the vows...is that a risk worth taking? So, when a conflicted guest decided to consult the gloriously petty Reddit group, "Wedding Shaming," about how children can ruin weddings, people were eager to pile on.
I’ve never wanted to offer to take a stranger’s baby more in my life. My husband and I attended a wedding of a dear friend of ours. The wedding was small, less than 50 people, and the ceremony took place in a small chapel that just fit everyone.
