So, recently a friend of mine was asking some questions about the wedding and asked if it was okay to bring her daughter. I explained that unfortunately it is an adult only reception. She then explains to me that her husband won't be in attendance if his daughter can't go.
I asked if it was an issue with child care and she said that is not the issue but that her husband will not go unless his daughter can attend. As a result, they will spend a daddy/daughter day at the venue's location and she will attend alone.
I obviously feel very bad about this since it's kind of a DW (2 hour drive for most guests and for them about 3.5). Other guests have already respected the no child policy.. but now I am feeling like I am being rude by not allowing my friend to bring their daughter since it is putting them out so much.
Do I allow this one exception? Or am I being rude to my other guests with children? No invitation has been extended yet to the daughter as I explained I needed to discuss it first with my FMIL who is paying for the reception and my FI.
