17 things you need to do to nail a wedding with a baby 

Weddings. With a tiny baby. What could be worse?! Well, yes – we’ve all seen and heard the horror stories. But it doesn’t have to be that way with some preparation and life hacks! 1. He’ll chunder, spit up, probably leak all over, and generally ruin his first outfit. Decide if you want your baby…
