It’s called getting a babysitter, and enjoying an evening with your FI/Husband without children. Honestly, I have two kids and I can’t imagine bringing them to a wedding, and driving 8 hours with them if it could be avoided. That just doesn’t sound like a good time to me. I mean, I’m bringing them to my stepbrother’s wedding, but we are immediate family and he wants them there. Other than that, I call up grandma/grandpa and put on my dancing shoes!! I think it would be rude to bring it up with your friend. I’m having an adult-only wedding and have been getting really really annoyed at the few ppl with kids calling me to complain about it.

@Bostonsmom: I agree.

And tbh, I don’t really understand why pepople want to bring their kids to weddings. I never enjoyed them when I was younger/ Weddings are usually boring and overwhelming for kids, so yeah, get a babysitter and go enjoy yourself.

@JoshsTammy: Excuse me, but as a stanger on the internet, I’m not sure you have all the facts you need, to assume that I don’t like my kids, but thanks for coming out. You do realize how ridiculous it is, to say that you must love your kids more because you bring them to weddings? This isn’t about you, or your family time with your kids and Fiance. It’s about your friend who’s getting married. Respect her wishes.

Hey, JoshsTammy! I say just ask her. I mean, don’t be confrontational about it, just ask, it might be a total misunderstanding. Or, she might have a good reson, either way, when you have the real answer you can make an educated decision. Whatever your decsision, just make sure you’ve examined all the angles. Good Luck! Smile

I would just not bother her with this. I’m sure it’s not personal, it’s probably just a no kids wedding. I understand that you’ve been helping her a lot, but unless you specifically mentioned something about your kids being at the wedding, she probably just didn’t think to bring it up. It’s kind of common to have that rule to help cut costs.
