While some parents believe that an invitation to a wedding should always include all of their children as well, other parents prefer to take the night away from the kids and relax at the open bar and dance floor. Even if you attempt to make a wedding as child-friendly as possible, watching two adults exchange deep, romantic vows while that one estranged aunt hits the margarita station too hard or every friend in the bridal party gives an impromptu speech about how they met the bride isn't exactly a kid's dream evening. Ring bearers and flowers girls are an adorable way to include children in the ceremony, but with early bedtimes, a piercing cry, and a low tolerance for boredom, kids just aren't usually the ideal wedding guests.
