    Depends what stage my children were at, I didn't go to SIL wedding because they didn't want children to come. The wedding was 8 hours away, we had an almost 2 month old baby who was breastfed, MIL wanted me to leave my 3 children with my mother for the weekend sure my boys maybe but my 2 month old?!? She wanted me to express FFS. Not to mention my mother is already looking after 3 of her grandchildren fulltime. The other option was for us to hire some random stranger we had never met before, yeah right! Or we could of taken a babysitter with us, which would of meant double the fuel as we would of had to take 2 cars not to mention paying the expenses of another adult. In the end hubby left me and the kids at home for the night, he left in the morning and drove back first thing the next morning. I was told I was preventing him from attending his only siblings wedding!!! They knew when we were due to have our baby and they chose to have their wedding 8 hrs away with no kids on the invite, I'm not sure what they expected. What annoyed me even more was one of the bridesmaids was allowed her 2 yr old along

    I am of the "if you don't want kids at your wedding that's fine but don't tell me you feel put out when we don't come category". When my children are old enough I will be more than happy to come childless IF I can find someone to watch them and it's not too long to leave them with said person.

    I prefer to go without my son as then I can enjoy myself without worrying about him.

    We had immediate family kids only!

    It was $65 a head & we know too many people with kids..
    Weddings add up too quickly

    It's each to their own really...

    If it was a baby under 18 months, I'd be okay with it...

    Were having kids at our wedding (as some are in the bridal party) and we're getting a child's "entertainer" for the canapé's part of the evening so the parents can have a few glasses of champagne before dinner while the kids can run around and play. We're also thinking of getting a baby sitter to stay with some of the younger kids at the hotel across the road.


    Totally understand if people don't want children at weddings, most these days say no kids. I don't really like children around alcohol and drunk people (who are inevitably at weddings) so people with kids at ours will probably not stay late.

    Nope I may choose to not take them, but if they are not invited I don't go
    That being said I don't attend weddings as i think they are a waste of money and I made the personal decision to not support them

    I would go. I would see it as a great opportunity for date night with the hubby and DD would be looked after by her grandparents who spoil her rotten so we would all win.

    Sorry, haven't read all of the responses, but..

    Yes, as long as it was on the invite that kids aren't invited.

    We were about to book accommodation and flights for a cousins wedding, and had called him for a chat prior. He told us over the phone that kids weren't invited, so I was a bit peeved about that. (not about the fact that kids weren't invited, but that it wasn't on the invitation). I think as long as it's clear, it's the bride and groom's choice.

    I think it all depends on the circumstances but generally I would go because that day is not about me or my children it is about the happy couple and if they would prefer no children that is their choice and I need to respect that.
