  • I brought my first born to a wedding with me and he was 4 months old. It was an outdoor ceremony and the reception was indoors. He was fine! There's usually music and chatter. Even if your child gets fussy it will probably go unnoticed. If the ceremony is indoors I would probably leave them with a sitter and get them afterwards for the reception.

  • It's not too soon to expose her to crowds. How long should she be there? You'll have to judge her behvaior and tolerance at the time.

    HOWEVER - remember that ths is the bride's big day. She may not want babies there. Be sure to ask her if it's OK. You should never assume that your invitation includes your child unless it clearly states "and family".
