    Childless parties are fine.

    Not letting people with children know this until they're about to leave though... that's not fine.

    Sending it in a text, written the way it was, is not fine either.

    It's rather rude.

    If u work with someone u generally.know if they have children and its probably default they will bring.child along so of course you let them know straight away its kid free- what they did was so highschool and i would pull her up at work and tell her how incredibly rude she and her husband are.

    Yep my thoughts exactly! We have been to a few child-free bbqs and have always been told when the invitation was issued. Most people tend to say 'we are having a bit of a BBQ next weekend, it would be a great opportunity for you guys to have a break from the kids are you interested?' That way we know that they aren't inviting the kids, in a not so rude way. Usually I then jump at the chance lol!
