20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms

Honestly, am I wrong to be pissed off...?

Posted by   + Show Post

 My husband's cousin is getting married the end of next month, and my daughter is the flower girl. I just received the invitation in the mail, and accompanying it is a little card that states "Adults only reception".

I'm supposed to go to David's Bridal this weekend, and spend $99 on her dress, then go buy tights and shoes, for her to wear for about an hour, and she's not allowed at the reception.

 Have you ever heard of such a thing?

I would assume that if you didn't want children at your reception (and the wedding and reception are at the same location) that you wouldn't include them in your bridal party.

I agree ask. My sisters wedding is no kids -except the wedding party.


Quoting GirlWSlingshot:

Have you asked her if that included your DD?

She responded, Lydia IS welcome at the reception, and her young cousins will be there as well, so Lydia will not be the only child. Apparently the adults only deal is a budget move. Glad that's sorted out =)

Common or not, it seems rude and inconsiderate.

Quoting Binkxo:

My dd was in a wedding like this, it usually means kids not in the party. The kids in the party usually go to the reception for a little bit than leave. It's very common actually.

Agreed. Maybe thered be an exception for her but then again, i dont think children belond at receptions..all the drunk people and everything. Not really a great environment.

It's a sit down dinner, we'll leave after dinner is over.

Most the ones I've known of or been to had a ton of drunk guests once the drinking and dancing started. Which I don't see a problem with,just not kid friendly.
