I can’t help it – I’m addicted to rude people who started world war 3 over adult-only weddings.
I expect to run across this issue myself. Please share!

@skippydarling: My aunt said, “Oh, well that’s too bad…but you know your baby cousins have to come right? We’ll be bringing them along, right? They’re your family, they have to be invited.”
They’re three and five, so no, they’re not fucking invited.

lofl– love it.
We had a no kids wedding… no kids came, but 5 of my cousins also RSVPd no because their children weren’t invited. It was cheaper for me to have less people, but I do feel it’s pretty shallow to not attend an adult event just because you have kids. (My cousins are very well off– they can afford a sitter… or couldve used their regular nanny..)

@skippydarling: Honestly, we invited 40 kids under 12, 8 under 1. We provided babysitters and kids were welcome for everything except for the dinner and toasts (after listening to the best man’s speech the parents understood why I paid for a baby sitter). Yet parents still complained because I didn’t provide infant food– only food for ages 18 months and over. Who knew babyfood was expected?!!

@skippydarling: You don’t even want to know.

That is insane. I can’t imagine most parents being comfortable feeding their babies random “infant food” that someone else determined was the right stage for all kids under 18 months. I would think if you’re not breastfeeding and your child can’t eat normal food cut into tiny pieces, you would bring your own food! At the right stage for their age! (formula, mushy stuff, a container of Cherrios, etc)

I do not have children but I am personally not a fan of “No Children allowed” weddings…. Weddings are a family event and I think that ALL family should be allowed to attend.

thanks for the input, but that’s not the topic OP was discussing.

I agree even if this is not what OP was asking!

It’s in the category of worst, rather than rudest- when we announced we would not be allowing children at the wedding under 18, my sister reportedly cried (My mom broke the news). Then didn’t talk to me for days. It caused such a large family feud that we evantually had to cave and allow “nieces and nephews” only.

I’m just glad we’ll only have one kid at our wedding, and he’ll be about 10. I refuse to have kids at my wedding. I think that it’s about what the bride wants her wedding to be like, not to entertain children who probably won’t care or remember a wedding.

I just don’t understand how people don’t get the no kids thing. If you are trying to have an elegant event, and especially one with alcohol, it makes perfect sense to have it adults-only. I personally do not like going to weddings where kids are running wild. Don’t get me wrong, I love kids. Just not at weddings. We are having an adult-only wedding and luckily for us, it’s worked out ok. My FI’s mom wasn’t crazy about it at first, but everyone we’ve talked to is looking forward to an adult night out without the kids.

exactly we were not discussing that! I dont want kids there b/c at our venue it is $ 55 per person to eat and that is including cocktail hr. Which in my opinion, it’s just not appropriate for kids to be running around during such an elegant event. We are having signature cocktails out on the tables for guests to get one. We dont have time to responsible for a kid grabbing a cocktail! My Future SI in-law said, “well yall are not going to have anybody at your wedding if you dont let the kids come” and i kindly responded ” well they can stay their ass at home then” lol… i had to give her a taste of her own medicine. PPl should respect other people’s day and if they dont want kids , you can kindly decline or find someone else to keep them.

. One of my friends is going to a reception only, not ceremony since she won’t get a sitter that long. I seriously want to uninvite her to mine if she has that thought.
