Chances are, yes – but you never want to assume. I would just politely ask them if she’s invited to the reception or if you need to find a way to get her home after the ceremony.

@mrs-j-to-be:  plus one. typically Id think so but you cant assume and would nicely ask the bride and groom 🙂

@Buttercup123:  I would ask. I’m sure she would make an exception to the rule because it is her sister, and also her flowergirl. That being said, It’s not unheard of for this to extend to any child at all.

My nephew, ringbearer, will be the only kid at the wedding.  I’d ask to double check, but my guess is yes.

I would also guess that this is an exception. If she is in the wedding party…how would they expect her to get back after?

We also made one exception to our no kids policy for FI’s first cousin. We invited all of our other first cousins, so it seemed unfair to exclude him. He’s also like 9, so he should be able to behave himself. Its not like a toddler or baby who will be crying the whole time.


I would double check with the bride but I think you’re in the clear.
