I’m planning to go to my sister’s dest wedding when I’ll be about 7 weeks post partum. If it were anyone but my sister, I’d stay home. It’s a lot to put together to travel to and from a wedding with a baby.

It was nice of them to invite you and the baby, but it would be a lot to do only 4 weeks out.

My friend said she’s going to try to come to my March 6 wedding and she’s due February 9.  It’s four hours from where she lives though so she could just stay the night of the wedding then go home.  And ours is just a dinner reception so I’m hoping she won’t feel weird.  I totally understand where you’re coming from though and I told her it’s completely up to her and I’d understand her decision if she doesn’t want to do that.

Well I wouldn’t go to the Destination Wedding with a 1 month old either. You can’t predict how hard it’s going to be to travel with the baby, some are easy some can’t be separated from their parents for a second and have screaming fits even in a carseat. My sisters Bridesmaid had a 1 month old at her wedding and like you pre-planned for her parents to sit that night, but even so the parents ended up bringing the baby to my sisters wedding b/c he was SCREAMING so loud and so non-stop they really thought he might have to go to the hospital or something.

I wouldn’t go to the destination wedding either… that sounds like it could be really tough to travel that soon with a baby. Plus, you might still be exhausted by then if you have a light sleeper– why travel all that way just to stay in a hotel room with a baby that has to nap a couple times during the day. And to top it off, you don’t know what your healing will be like. You might have some… um… symptoms that make it difficult to sit on the beach in a bathing suit all day long… 😉

That was very sweet of you to be understanding and tell your hubs to go without you!

I would decline on the beach destination wedding as well if I had a 1 month old, and so would DH. Like pp’s have said you don’t know how you will heal, how long it will take to get into a grove with baby or how much assistance {from DH} you will need.
