A former colleague did this - the service was then made somewhat interesting by the fact that the (human steamroller of a) Head then proceeded to stand in the aisle and conduct/encourage/chivvy on the singing!
One of our brownie leaders had all the brownie pack there at hers and has a set of wedding photos of her surrounded by them all.
I think this has been a tradition for a long while. My Mum offered an open invitation to children she taught to come to her wedding (and had a photo with them) and that was in 1959! I seem to remember children coming to my uncle's wedding too (his bride was a primary school teacher) though I was only 5 or 6 at the time and my memories are quite vague.
I got married in 1998 and lots of my 2-3's came to the wedding, (well the ones who weren't struck down with chicken pox as the day before they all seemed to come down with it) A lot of the children who had left too came to see me which was wonderful
How lovely! When I was in secondary school my form teacher invited us all to her wedding ceremony - not the reception - at a church in a village just outside the town. I remember going with a group of friends and it being one of my first major excursions without parents/adults on public transport which we had to organise ourselves. It is a memory that has stayed with me. We were about 13/14 I think.
DD has been 'invited' to sing at the wedding of one of her teachers on Friday. She was asked months ago along with the rest of the choir and I agreed but asked for more details which DD finally gave me to day. The wedding is about an hours drive from our house and I have to drop her there, wait about 2 hours for her and then take her home. Not sure if it is nice or a bit of a cheek
My friend did this when I was her maid of honour. We were up until midnight the night before her wedding making little wedding-colour-matching sweetie bundles to hand out to the kids who might turn up. Loads did and my friend was so touched - it was lovely.
