I would never leave children out of any event, party, or wedding. My opinion, of course. I was in fact taken aback when I was told by my only cousin's bride that my children, were not invited to their wedding. I was in fact planning on leaving my then 3 year old with a sitter (we had to travel to that wedding), but my 5 month old at the time, I had to bring him (I was breast feeding). Needless to say, we did not go to the wedding.
Then on the other hand, I had my second child 2 days before my nephew got married. He came early, at 35 weeks. My nephew called me while I was in the hospital, and I told him I guess we would miss his wedding. Him and his bride insisted that we come, and his bride actually horded my son most of the reception! Bride said over and over when people asked if she was mad that the baby stole her spotlight. She said "Uh hello, I am in the white dress. No spotlight stealing here!".
So I was wondering, Kids or no kids for the brides to be here, and why the decision?
