My friend is getting married on Saturday and heading to his honeymoon in Bora Bora. Ridiculously large ceremony first, though :-b

Exactly. And given Met's position that he's stated, I don't think he'd be upset if that was the case. Shouldn't really be that difficult. B-)

I haven't read every post so I really don't know why this thread has gotten to 7 pages but I as a guy with 2 kids I can guarantee you that there are no parents out there that do not go to and appreciate kids-free nights. We schedule outings with friends all the time on the explicit understanding that kids are not welcome. We need breaks (frequent ones with alcohol) and any parent that tells you that they want their kids out with them all the time is lying.

A perfect kids-free night is a wedding, especially if there is an open bar. Let's face it some liquid assistance in forgetting your kids is welcomed.

If it is a family member getting married they would want my kids involved. Close friends would want my kids involved. As a rule, if the person getting married knows and has a relationship with my kid they would generally want my kids invited to the wedding (my kids are cute and well behaved and love to dance at weddings). But if the person is not a family friend and just knows me or my wife then there is no reason to invite my kids and I would not be offended if my kids were told to stay home but other kids were at the wedding.

I would not be upset at all and would totally understand.

An aside. The only thing worse than bringing small children to a wedding, is being invited to a small child's birthday party. Seriously, I love you and your kid, but why on earth would you invite me to her 2nd birthday party? :-S

Nice, as long as his in-laws are paying the bill. :-b

Yeah, those are pretty bad. Just to be a good friend, I show up and head straight for the booze (Lord help me if there wasn't :-b).

Worse yet, is having to attend a baptism. My friends and relatives from Pop's side of the family have the nasty habit of making me godfather of their kids. No excuses for not showing up, let alone not to give a gift. :-b But hey, as long as the food and booze are up to snuff, I can't complain.

That's exactly how I roll too. Sure I'll come to your kid's party, but be prepared for me to get a little saucy. :-b
