Children should not be allowed at weddings says top wedding planner

Top wedding planner Tara Fay says that children should not be allowed at weddings, despite the fact that she has three young kids of her own.

Fay, who organised Rosanna Davison’s wedding to Wesley Quirke last summer, says that she wouldn’t be able to relax and enjoy herself if she had to look out for her kids.

Tara also stressed that she fully believes weddings are for adults and excessive drunkenness around children is just not on.

“I am very traditional and a bit of a prude, as I don’t believe that children should be around alcohol at all”, she said.

“I’ve been at weddings where there have been near misses and things have nearly been spilled on babies by accident.”

A recent poll on parenting website MummyPages.ie showed that mums are divided on the issue with 52 per cent agreeing with Fay, while 69 per cent said that it was up to the bride and groom.

Only 12per cent of those polled though it was a good idea to bring a newborn under six months to a wedding.
