Keep Your Wedding Small

You don’t have to do this, but this is what we would do if we were in your position. The wedding itself we recommend that you keep relatively small. The reason for this is because the less people that you have at your wedding, the more intimate it feels.

Plus, when you have a new baby it can be tough to balance this, on top of having a whole load of other people there as well. Some people just find it easier if there are not a load of people to contend with, instead having more time to focus on the baby and the wedding itself.

Also, you never know how a baby is going to be at any given time of day, so you don’t know if they are going to start crying at any point. The only people who should be at your wedding are the people who will not mind this interruption, and understand what it’s like.

Give Your Baby To Someone They Love

For the duration of the time that you are up there getting married, it’s best to choose someone that you know your baby loves and is happy to settle with. This will give you peace of mind throughout the day that when you are not with them, they are happy and content with someone else that they love.

Keep in mind that this should be someone who doesn’t mind holding the little one on and off throughout the day. It’s important to check with them before you just decide, as the last thing you want anyone to feel is that you’re dumping your baby on them for a while.

However, the people that you invite to your wedding would probably never feel this way, it’s still a good idea to check. Your guests may even be happy to take turns if your little one gets restless throughout the day.

Keep Toys On Hand

Of course, even when they are little, you need to ensure that they are not bored throughout your wedding day or else it could be chaos for you. Keep some toys on hand at the locations throughout the day just to make sure that they are easily accessible when they are needed.

Hopefully they won’t be needed too much, but it’s always best to have something and not need it than the other way around. This is supposed to be your special day and one of the best of your life, so it’s important that things go as smoothly as possible.

When you are packing the toys, keep them small and fun. Make sure they don’t make too much noise but are also suitably entertaining for the little one.

Make Sure Everyone’s Health Is Good First

The last thing that we want to say is that you want to make sure that everyone’s health is good before you have your wedding. You can push it back if this is necessary if mother or baby needs a little more time before a big event like this.

Think back to when you were going through the baby prep tips before you had your little one, and think about what you were taught about how to ensure they are happy and healthy. It might have been the case that the baby cost you a little more than you thought and now you need a little more time before you go through with the wedding, and that’s okay. Or, mother or baby might not be fully recovered just yet, and that’s okay too.
