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.
