When it comes to hashing out the details of the big day, every couple has to make the guest list decision: kids welcome or adults only? It’s not always an easy question to answer, and today we’re weighing the factors to consider on both sides of the coin to help you make the choice that best fits your wedding vision. Grab your pro/con list and let’s get to it…

Are you back with me? So, now that you’ve browsed Style Me Pretty’s list of pros + cons of having kids at your wedding, let’s transpose this to your destination wedding in Tahiti, shall we?
Well, first & foremost, if you’ll be inviting dear friends and family members who have kids to your destination wedding in Tahiti, what are the odds that they can leave the kids at home while they go to Tahiti? It’s probably every parents’ (secret) dream to just leave the kids behind while they kind of get a honeymoon for themselves in Tahiti, but let’s get real: it’s unlikely to happen. While some may be able to drop the kids to their grandparents for a week, chances are, either they’ll be traveling with them, or they’ll decline the invitation.
You need to be ready to hear, and accept, both alternatives.
Good news is, the Tahitian airline Air Tahiti Nui offers a Tahiti family fare special that includes TWO children tickets for (nearly) free with two paying adult tickets! So children up to 11 years old will only pay little taxes and will make it to Tahiti with their parents without them breaking the bank! Yeah!

Holding Your Destination Wedding In Moorea Is A Very Safe And Super Family-Friendly Choice
The people in Tahiti are very warm and welcoming, and they’ll be eager to share their culture and craft skills with visitors of all ages.
Many Tahiti resorts also now have family specials and can accommodate families.
I am based on the gorgeous island of Moorea which is ideal to hold a destination wedding as it is only a 30-minute ferry across from the capital island of Tahiti, and offers a variety of accommodation types ranging from b&bs, to family-run pensions, small hotels, vacation rental homes & villas, to luxury resorts so there’s something for every budget and every party size!
Plus, Moorea is absolutely great for families as it offers lots of active, fun-filled and adventurous activities, both on the lagoon and on the mountain side. Kids won’t get bored so this is actually a fantastic opportunity for them to discover new horizons, and be mindful of how diverse our beautiful planet is.

Will My Guests Still Be Able To Enjoy Their Time In Moorea With Their Kids There?
It’s very common to have kids attend a destination wedding in Moorea, and I can of course help to secure a baby-sitter or two for the night of the wedding so that mummy and daddy can enjoy the party while the kids get entertained in a nearby bungalow or room (or simply put to bed), but also during the stay when the parents are willing to take an activity that is not suited for kids such as scuba diving or a whale watching tour in season.
So to sum it up I say go for it!
