- Wedding: September 2015
Most of our friends with kids were pumped to get away for an evening, so no one really said anything. I did have a friends wife ask me if we’d have daycare there to watch her kid, and I told her no – but if one of you would want to stay home and bring the kid in your place, that would be fine. It was odd, considering when she married my friend – god forbid you invited anyone that wasn’t on your invitation (even to the dance!).
I wouldn’t give it a second thought, I don’t think everyone you invite should have their kids invited. Some people just think their kids need to be involved in everything. Unless you are personally close to her as well as her children it shouldn’t have even been considered that the kids would be invited.
Lol, she can’t just invite her children. If the only person you put on the invite was her, then only she was invited. If you had her and a plus-1, then she and her spouse. It doesn’t matter who else’s children are invited. It’s up to the hosts to choose who they’re inviting to a closed party. It’s up to guests to choose individually whether they want to come or not.
You’re not being mean! It’d be different if yu had told her it was a “no kids” wedding, and then she showed up and saw a bunch of kids, but that’s not the case. It’s just that you don’t know her kids. She should completely understand that — I know I would, and I’m a parent. It’s no problem at all.
I would never be insulted if I couldn’t bring my son to a co-workers wedding (yeah date night!). If she asks I would just let her know the other children are family. How is she going to know if there are not any other kids missing.
