- Wedding: June 2012
We have stated to all our friends and family that there will be no children at our church wedding and late night reception. This doesn’t have a huge effect, as very few of our friends have children and are more than happy to leave them home.
The problem has come from family (of course). We have a large group of cousins who are travelling about 2 hours to celebrate with us. All of them are making arrangements for their children to be looked after and coming up no probs, except for one couple. They have a toddler and a newborn. I asked my Fiance to chase up their RSVP (which is now three weeks late BTW) and we got the following;
“we are really unsure how we are gonna go with the kids as Leah is still breastfeeding and we just dont know what to do as people have said no kids was meant to message you earlier about it”.
THE WEDDING IS NEXT WEEKEND! You have had six weeks to RSVP plus an extra three after the cutoff date! Why didn’t you ‘message’ us earlier!!!!
I do have another friend who is bringing her newborn (6 weeks, how adorable!) as her hubby is loaning us his car for the wedding party, plus I really cannot let them leave a newborn at home, especially a first baby. She has said that any sounds and she will be taking littlie out of the ceremony, which I am super grateful for.
Here is where my other issue is – if we say yes to the newborn (which I am happy to do), we will get the, “oh, then we will just bring the toddler too”. NO. Just NO.They are the kind of people who will not care if their little darlink is running aorund and carrying on at the church or reception.
My Fiance is totally on my side too, really I’m just venting to see if anyone else has had to deal with this and what you did. FAMILY!
