  • I think you are being more than understanding with them going and you not, so no I don't think saying no that your son can't be ring bearer is at all unreasonable.

  • I think its very strange that she would say your Dh and DS could go but not you. But I really dont see anything wrong with your son being the ring bearer.

  • I agree. I would say ABSOLUTELY NOT to him being a ring bearer. I think you're being very understanding and classy about them going without you. It's considered rude to invite 1/2 of a married couple to a wedding. Even if it was, say, a co-worker and you didn't know them, it's considered rude, and for it to be a family member, whether you get along or not, to invite your dh and NOT you is VERY rude. (I'm assuming you aren't invited because you don't get along, NOT because you would make a scene or anything....)

    Honestly, your dh should have refused the invitation to begin with. He should've said I'm sorry, but I don't choose to go places my wife is not welcome. Would you want to come to something like this for me if your soon to be dh wasn't invited? Also, ask his parents how they would have felt, if ONE of them was invited to your (or anyone's) wedding.

    You're being classy and generous, they're pushing their luck!!

  • btw - I can see, maybe, if the relationship is that bad between you and her, and if she doesn't want you there and you don't want to be there, maybe your dh going without you. But honestly, I think I would have said that at 3, you don't think he's really old enough for weddings, and that since you aren't going to be there to make sure that he doesn't get over tired or over stimulated and cause a disturbance, your ds will be staying home with you.

    Believe me, he's not going to remember missing it, or anything like that. That way, your dh can go see his sister married if he want's, but honestly, why have your ds there - and as ring bearer no less - if you AREN'T - unless it's to just emphasize that you aren't there / weren't invited?

    Sounds like your inlaws are sooooo classy to me....
