Anyway though, since this is someone who's been a good friend for years, and since this is the type of situation that can ruin friendships (ask me how I know ) this is what I'd do if I were in your situation. I'd...

Mods, I said ACTING LIKE, I didnt outright call him a name. LOL! Thanks for that!
Quote: Originally Posted by EFmom I'm sure your daughter is delightful and this must be hurtful. But it's not about your daughter. Please try not to take it personally. It's about some kind of "policy" he and the bride came up with for crafting a guest list and not about particular individuals. It's about his unwillingness to help us figure out a solution so we could attend. He didn't let us know she wasn't invited until the invitation...

We've been talking to some of our mutual friends and none of us have met the...
Thanks for the feedback! We are not going to the wedding; we feel we don't have any choice. My husband is definitely not okay about going without our daughter. Instead, though, my daughter and I are going to visit my sister and help my mother probate my father's will. Husband will be home between business trips, taking care of the kitties. Daughter is pretty excited that she is going on a trip after all, so I think it's okay. Wonder if the friendship will survive,...
BTW you guys couldn't know this (but our friend does!) but our daughter has always been an easy-going kid; some people describe her as "content." Her teachers tell us she a "wonderful classroom citizen." She's well-behaved, even as a small child she never acted up much, never in public, and she's 12 now and very a much a young lady who behaves herself! We don't get it!

He wrote that he and the bride discussed this over and over, and again before sending the invitations, and it was a "done deal." Too bad he didn't discuss it with us! I got the feeling that he was sick of talking about it even though it was news to us and we were pretty gob-smacked.
Quote: Originally Posted by To-Fu Did he give you any explanation as to why your daughter is not welcome? It seems really strange to me, given that other children will be there. When my husband called to confirm that our daughter was not invited, our friend said no children were allowed because of "liability issues." But when we emailed him to RSVP, he wrote back that only nieces and nephews were coming, and that the Sunday BBQ was...
Please tell me what you think of this and what in the world is going on! A close family friend of 20 years is getting remarried in 4 weeks, 500 miles away. We knew about the upcoming wedding 6 months ago, and planned to make it a family vacation since there are 3 nights of festivities. We were very much looking forward to the wedding since there has been a lot of sadness in our family lately – I lost my dad 7 months ago, and my dear sister has been fighting a very...
