- Wedding: August 2013
Various guests may have issues. Some older ones may not be able to drive at night, and want soemone invited who will give them a ride. That may be just as big an issue to them Doesn’t mean that bride has to give them an extra invite.
I get it that OP did not focus on breastfeading, but that does not mean infants MUST be invited. Unfortunately, many parents will not remove a crying kid from the ceremony. Not fair for those who will be polite, but that is life. The bride and groom have to consider ALL guests, including those who infants and children may annoy.
Infants makie seating arrangements more difficult. I would not put a child/infant at a table with other adults without kids, unless close relatives. I would not put cousin with kid with co-workers, but I might if they did not have a kid.
One mantra of the Bees, is that you wedding is not as importance to others as it is to you. I would say a corallary to young mothers is that no one thinks your baby or child is as adorable or as well behaved as you do (OK, maybe grandparents).
It is the bride and grooms choice, and then guests have to decide what there options are.
