People Are Sharing Their Opinions On “No Children” Policy At Weddings, Heated Debate Ensues

Recently, a quarrel on Twitter emerged after a woman named Alice tweeted a bold statement: “Probably going to get slated for this, but people are perfectly entitled to request no children at their weddings.”

As you may suspect, this didn’t pass unnoticed. 12.3K retweets and 3,866 quote tweets later, it seems like everyone had their own argument laid out on the table. While some people agreed with the tweet’s author, others were far from impressed.

Below we wrapped up some of the most interesting, illuminating and thought-provoking responses shared in the thread. After scrolling down, let us know what you think of no children policies at weddings in the comment section!

People can invite whoever they want at *their own* party! If I ever get married. I will invite children because I want to make it a more fun gathering. But that's just me :)

Exactly. I prefer weddings without children, I just don't think everywhere is suited for/needs to be suited for them, and I hated them as a kid myself. But you're paying for and organising a day to celebrate, it's up to you who you want there.

"children make the wedding day" - well no they don't unless they're yours on your wedding day. As for the argument in any other setting you would be slated for saying no elderly, no gays etc. isn't true either. Plenty of places have age restrictions, even cinemas, restaurants, clubs, shops, there is places that cater for religious people, gay people and no you absolutely do not get to join these facilities if you don't meet the criteria. Same as amusement parks, children activity parks where some children won't be able to participate due to health and safety. But wedding is about two people getting married, that serves alcohol, and most of us wouldn't be comfortable with children running around while adults drink and smoke. Weddings should have age restrictions just purely because children don't care, and parents literally are just quests. And most won't get upset if you miss one wedding because you chose your own family needs. I would leave my own wedding if family brings kids.

All of this and also elderly, gays, fat people etc are all adults so they really can't say it's the same as no kids!

People are so touchy these days. Child free weddings sound good to me. Most weddings I have attended have had the ceremony drowned out by wailing or kids whose parents ignore their kids and rely on everyone else to watch their kids, same goes for the receptions. It makes it harder to enjoy for everyone else if they have to keep your kids safe and prevent them from tearing stuff up.
