    I had no kid rule except for babies.
    Mind you with family kids we still ended up with about 15 kids😱

    I was really worried about it but the kids really added to the atmosphere

    I don't personally get the no kids at weddings rule but each to their own obviously, however, I also agree, their wedding, their way.

    I will be a bridesmaid at a wedding in Nov next year which is no children so DS who will be 16 months by then will be staying with my mum. The bride has already told me there will be a little baby there (about 4ish months) depending on when he/she is actually born and that they will be coming and would I be upset/offended that they were coming and DS was not. I said no as their wedding, their way and tbh not sure how I'd hold onto him if busy with getting hair done, during ceremony, photos etc.

    My DS is bf and I've tried hard to get him to take a bottle of ebm but he just won't! My mum loves her grandkids and regularly looks after my nephew but even she would feel a bit put on to have an newborn/infant for 6+ hrs whether they were bf or formula feed. It wouldn't be fair on either of them.

    I agree with what you've written and I'd probably ask my DH to not go as well. He's really supportive of breastfeeding even though he can find it frustrating at times. Hopefully she can come round to see your point of view especially if she has others with LOs coming as well. As a positive, if you don't go atleast you don't have to do a crappy 7 hr drive with a little baby!!

    How strange that a no kids rule excludes bf babies?! Or babies under 6 months who take bottles too. Any function I've been too always allowed babies in prams even! Surely that would exclude a few other women too?

    Can you get your DH to have a chat to the groom about it? The bride sounds so wrapped up in a cloud of bride craziness she's clearly not thinking straight.

    I wouldn't go.. I would encourage my DH to go though. I don't see anything wrong with their rules as it's their wedding and likely they will learn their lesson anyway sometime in the future

    I had no children at my wedding but would have had no problem with an infant. I didn't want little toddlers running around and even now wouldn't take make children to a wedding even if they were invited. Exception has been when the eldest was a flower girl and we had friends come for the weekend away to babysit for the reception and other functions over the weekend.

    It could as someone has already mentioned be a venue thing.

    She has replied with 'hope you guys can make it but we understand if you can't

    Oh well, if DH decides he doesn't want to go, then I'm sure we DF will be a bit ****ed since they have been friends forever, if he's not ****ed about it then I guess it's no loss.

    Looks like either way I won't be going, it's not really a huge issue for me except that I do like weddings, and I hate being the one who never ever gets to go anywhere or do anything. But I guess a lot of mums feel that way.

    I totally agree with this as our wedding was the same. That's why I don't understand the 'no small babies' rule.

    Sorry this is OT OP, but what's this about the venue being a possible reason for some weddings not having kids incl infants? I've been married for 10 years so it's been a while since I looked at venues. I'm just curious, that's all

    I'm not sure to be honest, I've heard some venues don't allow kids and toddlers (although I couldn't name any) but I've never heard of a venue banning babies!!

    Edit: I also doubt it's the case for the particular venue as she hasn't said that is the reason (that would be a pretty easy way to get people to accept it) and I've also had dinner at the venue a few weeks ago when we went up to is it them and it is actually like a country club type venue and there is also a kids playground right next to where we would be eating...
