My mum has raised concerns with me that I am not allowing my sister to bring her new baby to my wedding in November, she will be 6 months old at the wedding and is only bottle fed so I have considered the breast feeding is not an obstacle.
We are not inviting any children to the wedding apart from my FH daughter who is 8 (not a baby) the wedding is a cocktail theme in the heart of melbourne and not kid/baby friendly. If my sister had a child that was older and i know wouldnt need constant attention then i may consider but what if she start screaming during the ceremony or even at the reception?
Im not overly stressed right now but I know this will come up again closer to my wedding. My family will be at the wedding so they cant babysit, My sisters partner is invited (but no one likes him ) could i suggest he stay home and babysit? or she find a friend to baby sit or is this rude to ask a new mother?
Other guests who have a baby the same age have already RSVP'd that they are coming and they are happy (excited) for a child free night away...
I am just a bit confused on the etiquette here?
