do you think theme birthday partys where they expect the kids to dress up are rude?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Also given the fact they only gave 2 weeks notice?
All the kids will be be dressed up but my kids dont have these type of costumes and I refuse to buy them something they will only wear one day! Idk I think its rude especially since it was a fb invite! I might just decline to go.

The only dress up style birthday party we've gone to is Halloween themed. Maybe if you share the theme people can help look something up on pinterest?

As long as I had enough notice I wouldn't have an issue with it. My girls would love that.

i don't think its rude but i think the hosts should keep some costumes on hand in case there are children whos parents can't afford to get their kids a costume.

If there isn't the option to not dress up then don't go. The only time costume parties make sense to me is around Halloween.

I have never done costumed parties.
Well, last year, the girl had a joint Tinkerbell party, and they dressed up in body suits and tutus, but I didn't expect or ask anyone else to dress up.
Even DS didn't dress up.

No, I do not think they are rude at all.. but.. we have politely declined invitations to such parties because my children were not interested in and comfortable with them.
