    My cousin's wedding invite said "we request no children or dogs". I said a huge no to that one. It was 5 hours out of Melbourne, so it wasn't just the sort of event where you can arrange a babysitter for the evening - would have to find someone to have the kids for the entire weekend. Not to mention putting children in the same category as dogs...

    My view is, the bride and groom have every right to say no children at their wedding. But they don't have the right to get upset if someone doesn't come because they can't bring their child(ren).

    Yes I would and have, I really don't see an issue with them asking for no children. If I can't organise a babysitter or location is too difficult then I agree the host can't get upset that people can't come.

    Definitely! Good excuse for a child-free night out.Different with a young baby though - then it would depend if they would happily stay elsewhere

    It depends on what the function was for and how old my kids were.

    As a general rule for weddings if my kids aren't invited I normally don't go.

    Yes, I wouldn't take my kids anyway, they are young and destructive.

    Yep even if kids were welcome I still wouldn't take them to a wedding. Unless it was a family wedding and kids were really wanted there... Not just welcome IYKWIM

    Totally the couple's right to say no kids, and totally your right not to go if you can't/wont leave them.
    As to "no kids or dogs" did you not see the funny side?

    We had 32 kids at our wedding, but we also had a face painter, clown, table soccer, special kids tables with crayons etc, and special kids platters for food. Most of the parents forgot their kids were even there! Putting kids in an adult's environment (late night, alcohol etc) isn't appropriate, but providing for them if they are invited is a must.

    Definitely! I would prefer it

    I wouldn't take DD to a wedding anyway, and would have a much better time if there were no kids there in general.

    Yep! It'd be great fun, I've only had one 2hr dinner out away from DD in 21 months!

    I understand asking for no kids at a wedding, but I don't really like kids. I love my DD more than words can say, but other peoples kids, meh.
