WOW!  It’s crazy how people have such a hard time looking at the situation from the B&G’s point of view.  I don’t think some people realize how weddings have grown into such a BIG (expensive!) business over the last decade. She definately went overboard the de-friending!  Jeeesh… some people!!     Hold tight! πŸ™‚

You cant fold.. you make one exception it just snowballs!! my nephew and the flower girl arent coming to the reception either.  I want their parents to have a good time and the wedding doesnt start til 8.  My sister understands, and shes out of town, Im making arrangements for her son and its the end of it… good luck… sorry it wasnt a more exciting first RSVP!

That is sad that she responded that way. I do see both sides though. In my opinion, when kids are involved, I think it is best to go with all are invited or none are invited.

First let me say that I don’t have any children…BUT I am continually amazed at the people who are offended about a choice made by the bride and groom. I have not run into any major problems with this as of yet, but I’m prepared just in case…How ugly and rude of her to respond in such a manner…it’s only one night…I’m so sorry! I wish this wasn’t the first RSVP card you had received..SOME PEOPLE!!

@violachap: we are date twins! our invites will be going out this week! YAY πŸ™‚

@christalynn11: from how you describe her, it sounds like she responds & reACTS to not getting her way, by throwing fits and stomping her virtual feet..by de-friending you on fbook. Look on the bright side: she was able to compliment you on your fabulous invitations!! I am still shocked by her lack of class. sheesh!

Wow! Welp, maybe it’s better to have this person out of your life than in it. She didn’t have to take everything so personally.

I agree with you… Children have no place at a wedding… I love my nephew to death… but he still isnt coming to the reception… i dont want to listen to him scream at inappropriate times because its far past his bedtime and nothing to entertain him.  shell get over it and well if she doesnt at least she wont be there to cause a stink about something on the actual day!

So sorry about her crappy reaction.  Hopefully they get over it and don’t let it interfere with your FI’s long term relationship with the child.

I’m really sorry this is happening to you… πŸ™

It’s really sad that she doesn’t understand, but I think it’s awesome that you’re sticking to your decision.  I’m probably going to be in that situation too whenever we get ours sent out, so we can commiserate. πŸ™‚
