The only children that will be attending our wedding are 3 flower girls (my 2 nieces and FI’s lil cousin) and a ring bearer (my nephew). This past weekend my sister called and told me she took in a 5 yr old foster child last Friday that may still be with them at the time of the wedding and if it is ok to bring her. I have a hard time saying no to this because it is a foster child and am probably going to say yes. I don’t think there’s no way of getting out of this one. Fiance says I can ask her to pay the cost of the plate. Already invited is my sister, her husband, and 18 yr old daughter. Children’s plates are $30-35 so I should just say yes, right???

@KIKI82: Just say yes and pay for it… you shouldnt ask your sister pay for her foster child to come…

I’d say yes. That little girl has been through enough, I think it would be best to make her feel welcome.

It is honestly up to you and your Fiance, but at this point, if I were in this position, I would just say yes. You likely haven’t given numbers to your caterer yet, so I don’t think adding an extra child meal would be a problem. Your sister really can’t leave a 5 year old foster child at home, so it will be easiest to just say yes. Good luck!

It is yes then! Thanx for the feedback everyone!

I would say yes and pay for it. I don’t think people will be upset if you’re letting your sister bring her foster child and they can’t bring their kids, they’ll probably understand.

That was my big concern artbee, since I had said no to cousins wanting to bring their 6 and 7 yr olds.

I would say yes. She is your sister and Im sure she wouldn’t want to leave the foster child in care of someone else. I would pay for the dish as well. I know you have to draw the line at some point, as did I… but when it comes to siblings, no one will make a comment.

I might just be prepared that a few people will be miffed. But you’ll be too busy on your wedding day to even notice!
