Pretty gutless that they couldn't say anything on the phone and texted saying that

Wow, I can see why you've kept the piece but jeez that must be hard for both of you not to say something.
Showing their true colours a little too late. very rough.
Hope hubby takes the family out for a nice dinner xx

That's a really dodgy way to ask someone not to bring their child. I mean, I get that some people are just anti-kid, but even then they still usually try to word it in a less offensive, less blunt way.
I'd be annoyed too OP.

Did they give a reason, like was someone sick, no other children there.
Personally I would never tell someone not to come to my house or not bring their kids, but anytime I'm going anywhere I always ask is it ok to bring DD and DS?
It is just plain rude if they just text you. Texting is a cop out.

I dont see why its such a big deal? Its pretty common for adults to have parties that are kid-free zones, especially if alcohol is being consumed there. Or the house could be unsafe for a child. Or one of the other guests could have recently experienced a miscarriage and the hosts are being sensitive to her. Or they have an unfenced pool. Those are all reasons that friends of mine have had no-kids parties. Or just because they want to have a party without a child there. I think they should have told you much earlier on so you had time to prepare or not attend, it was rude they gave you such little notice. But in my experience, people without children always make mistakes like that, assuming that a parent will know they don't want a child there. Sorry your feelings have been hurt. I must be horrible tho, I'm a parent myself, and I've thrown no-children BBQs!
