"We have an FAQ section on our website which is where we are kind of addressing all of these miscellaneous questions," Lauren says in the video. "We said, 'Hey, we love kids, but this is an adult only affair.'"
The comments section was of course, flooded with debate. Turns out, people have a lot of thoughts on whether children should or shouldn't be invited to weddings.
BuzzFeed reached out to Lauren to see how she and her fiancé came to their decision and how she's addressed varying opinions from family and friends. "My fiancé and I talked in the months leading up to our engagement about our vision for our wedding day and kids just weren't part of that vision for either of us," she told BuzzFeed.
"Most of our guests are traveling from out of state to attend our wedding, and New York is a complicated enough place to travel to," she explained. "That, coupled with wanting our wedding to be black tie and elegant, we didn't see kids fitting into the equation."
This is how Lauren and her fiancé addressed the no child rule on their wedding website:
Lauren said all of their 65 guests have been "incredibly understanding."
But for those who might complain, Lauren says she won't "sacrifice" her own vision to make others happy. "We want everyone at our event to have the best time possible," she said. "It's hard to make everyone happy, but one thing we won't sacrifice is our needs on the day of our wedding."
