Thread: Should I carry at my daughter's wedding?

  1. Should I carry at my daughter's wedding?

    In a few weeks, my daughter is getting married . The wedding and reception are in a large city, downtown ,parking is in a local parking ramp and not connected to the reception area. I'm not sure I want to tell my daughter that I will carry and encourage my law abiding friends to carry or do I just wait until she asks or finds out on her own.

  3. I wouldn't unless you dislike the groom! Seriously, I'm assuming CC, but I'd check local ordinances, unless already known.

  4. I would, I did a wedding a few months ago and there was a guy their had one, you never can tell when trouble will hit. If you can conceal it well why not just don't tell nobody.

  5. Many were carrying at my wedding. It was at my home. Most of my family and some friends of my wife carry as well. Non issue.

    @mojoman, what are you carrying with the recall in full swing? I'm toting a Springfield Champion.

  6. My XDm .45 4.5 now which is full size but I'm learning to carry it @ 3:00 and I can conceal it pretty good, almost as good as my XDs .45. I went today and rented the Glock 19 and 26 which I shoot well but I think that I shoot the 19 better, I like the 26 because I can conceal it better I don't think that will be an issue though. The wife and I are heading down to Oregon tomorrow so I will be carrying my XDm. The wedding I did was an out door wedding, the guy had a pretty large space.

    Let me give you possibly the perfect answer assuming it is legal to carry at the wedding and reception.OK READY-----If you want to Now for real,this is your daughters day PERIOD.WILL it be a problem for her if you do?I think it might be since your asking.That is not how you want your daughter thinking of you at the end of the day(just my 2cents my friend).That being said I understand the protection thing.could you possibly conceal where she wouldn't notice,leg maybe with smaller gun I know not optimal but just suggestion. Either way good luck and CONGRATS

    I carry a .38 in an ankle holster at my fathers funeral a few weeks ago.

    Mine was also outdoors as well. 98 degrees. Over 50 friends and guests. It was supposed to be a 6 person wedding, then my wife got involved...

    That evening a storm went through that blew everything away we had put up, huge reception area portable tent/canopies and canopies in the front lawn. All the leftover food, decorations...everything got blown into the woods. Knocked-over one of my trees and blocked neighbor's driveway. We were sitting in the reception tent and some were dancing after dark to wind-down. And the storm blew-in in less than 5 minutes after the gust front. My wife's son and I tried to hold onto some supports, but they were ripped from our hands. A surreal sight, watching everything blown across the lawn and into the night sky. Had to get my roof replaced. We were without power for over 11 hours.

    At least Thor waited 'til evening to unleash his anger, not being on the guest list. This was a wedding to be truly remembered. My brother couldn't get to his home for fallen trees, and had to call my dad to look at a map to navigate open roadways. I didn't know about this for weeks. Ahhh. Love!

    @mark3885, congratulations on the wedding. I bet you are a proud father!

    EDIT: Hindsight, one of the guests should have been responsible for up to the minute WX outlook. It was supposed to be hot/humid.

    If you can do so legally, then do so. ONe never knows when trouble of the worst kind will interrupt your day. If you knew in advance that something bad would likely happen, you may change your venue or something. That is the whole idea behind carrying...so that with no notice, no expectation, when you least expect it, you are still ready to protect your family and yourself.
