Because I'm 14 and I'd be really offended it someone didn't want me in their wedding fearing I'll break down crying or scream at people.

Is that allowed? Like in terms of social acceptance? I've always said, "if I get married, no kids allowed, I don't care if people get mad." People get so offended when their children aren't welcome somewhere and I think that's crazy. Under a certain age, children can't be trusted to comport themselves appropriately, and no sound ruins an event like a crying baby or toddler. In fact, I'm pretty sure almost every wedding I've been to has been interrupted by a crying baby, like right during the ceremony. Parents never like to hear this, but until your child is old enough to shut up on command, you really should avoid bringing them to things like this. That said, by 14, I'm pretty sure a kid is capable of handling themselves just fine. The only worry is if there's more than one, then they can get overexcited and mischievous and get loud. Honestly, I'd prefer everyone at my wedding be 18-50, I'd want to be able to play uncensored music at the reception without offending grandma, haha. Actually, maybe that would be my solution: make it an "adult themed" wedding! Nudity, filthy music... make it innapropriate for lame people to be there, hahaha. But seriously, in your case, I'd think it would be ok.2
