    Nope - honestly would not worry me - DS is only 3, any night time wedding/function he would be over it by 8pm and I don't think its fair on him to have to hang around - we have plenty of family/friend get togethers with kids so it's not like he's missing out on anything!

    my sister had a kid free wedding in March except for her DD and my DS but my MIL came and got both of them at. 7.30 which was ideal as they both were in photos and at the ceremony but left the reception when they were starting to get tired and DH and I stayed until midnight having a great time

    The only time i would expect my kids to be invited would be to my immediate family's events

    I cant leave my kids with sitters and my mil lives too far away to help out.

    So If they werent invited then i wouldnt go.

    No. As long as they are then okay when I say no because I can't leave my kids with anyone.

    Immediate family and close friends already know this and wouldn't have something where kids couldn't come - we all have kids.

    Occasionally a friend and I will go out kid free and our husbands have the kids.

    [QUOTE=dee1;7856061]Weddings, engagement parties, birthdays, etc.

    Do you expect your children to be invited?
    To family events yes, friends I don't expect invitation but I would consider not going unless I could easily
    Obtain baby sitting that I felt comfortable with, but having said that it's no one else's job to watch my kids and I feel guilty when I ask so I probably wouldn't go
    Are you upset if they aren't?
    Again if it was a family thing yes, friends not really
    Would you refuse an invitation if your children could not attend?
    Yes most likely, especially if everyone in my family is going I wouldn't have a baby sitter anyway, and as I said in point one, I don't really like asking people anyway

    No, I don't expect my DD to be invited, she's almost 3 and there are some things I just don't think are appropriate for her to attend. She sees family all the time, she doesn't have to be there for every single event.

    I don't think this just applies to kids either, I don't see a need to invite every family member to every event. I get invited to DHs cousins baby showers and other random events which I actually think is weird. I barely know them!

    I don't expect them to be.
    I'm not upset if they aren't.
    I would simply not attend and most people know I don't leave my children with just anyone so they know our circumstances.

    All I can say is kids/babies make parties so much more fun 😁

    I love seeing kids slide across the dance floor screaming at weddings😂

    No, no, no.... Unless I couldn't find a sitter.

    The only exception would be if I was BFing an infant... Even then I went to a wedding when ds was a newborn and rented a room at the reception venue and mum babysat and just texted me when he needed a feed, although I know this isn't an option for everyone.

    I don't expect kids to be invited, nor do I get upset when they are not. Generally I will need to decline attending as I don't really have access to babysitting. It's all just part of having kids though.

    Not everyone loves children and nothing annoys me more than if my own children aren't around other peoples kids fluffing about around me. It's not a personal insult just some people like to have kid free time
