    Yes, I would (and have) gone and had the kids babysat. We took DS when he was little after asking if it was ok as had no sitters (family wedding hours from home) but now he's over 2? No way would I take him unless he was specifically invited.

    I agree with PP that weddings are adult affairs. I had kids at my ceremony but not reception (except babies) and am not offended now I am the one with kids if they are not invited. It's not my day anymore, and the bride and groom are entitled to invite who they want just as I did for mine.

    If having 20 of their friends kids there means they have to cut the guest list or pay an exorbitant amount for food for them, then I think it is wrong of parents to just expect kids to go.

    No I wouldn't and I havnt. I have been invited to 2 weddings where no kids aloud. I didn't go to either. I have no way of going except to take dd with me. I think its rude IMO. Especially with the case of my so called (ex now) bf who invites with and dd then pounces it on me that she doesnt want dd to come now because her and her fiance went to a wedding without kids and thought hey no brats running around I like this idea. She hadn't even ever met dd before.

    I have been 2 several weddings where dd wasn't invited, and wouldnt hesitate to again. The most recent wedding we went to dhs cousin (the groom) invited our daughter (at family weddings the family kids are always invited, but not kids of friends ect) but we chose not to take her, we would prefer her to go to bed at her normal time, and to not have her in a place where the music is insanely loud
