Darling Husband and I received a wedding invitation yesterday, and beside the RSVP date is the quote “Sweet dreams to the children”. Darling Husband thinks this means that no children are invited, and I’m inclined to agree. Do you think we’re correct in our assumption? I’ve never seen wording like this, and I don’t want to do the awkward thing by asking the bride to confirm. Dirty Delete will be six months old, so we weren’t sure if we were going to bring her anyways, but it would be nice to know for sure.

@Shosha1: I could see that as being a really passive way to say “no kids”, so I would confirm with someone that that’s the case. If it is I’m sure you won’t be the only one who’s confused!

Yep, that sounds about right.

No kids is exactly what it means but in a nicer way

@Shosha1: What in the world? I’ve never heard that phrase before. It actually reads a little creepy to me! LOL! But yes, I agree you’re correct in your assumption.

My morbid-sense is tingling. My first reaction was, “They want to drug children? Weeeeird.”
Most likely a no-kids-allowed thing, but I totally am screwed up and didn’t take it that way.

Yeah, never heard of that phrase either, but that’s the only thing I think it could be…very odd though. I wouldn’t be surprised if the bride gets lots of questions by her guests on what that means.

Actually I’m not sure I would assume that’s what it means (not that I have a better idea!). Regardless, there’s no way I would bring a 6-month-old to a wedding. That sounds like no fun.

I think the wording was kind of strange, but it is likely “Please, no kids.”

@Cornflakegirl: I agree with this! It definitely sounds creepy lol Like a horror movie title!
That’s probably what it means but I would ask. It never hurts to ask IMO but I haven’t been a bride yet so I haven’t been on the receiving side of the questions lol

@soontobemrsm11: It’s like that MAMA movie that came out not long ago. Ha!

I have no idea, but I’m guessing your assumption is correct. And I agree it just sounds creepy!!!

I’m in the creepy camp also! I really don’t care for that wording and I think it will generate a lot more calls than “adult reception to follow” or something of that nature.

I would call and ask. I promise you won’t be the only one who calls up and asks!
