Friends are getting married about a month after my due date. Now that the invitation has arrived, we need to figure out if we're going or not. As a first time mom, I'm totally clueless and have no idea if thinking we can attend is overly optimistic or not.
--It's about 2 to 3 hours away from where we live. If we attend, we would allow lots of extra time for stops along the way
--We would plan to stay 1 night overnight
--The baby was included in the invitation, there will be a fair number of kids at the wedding, and we will know a lot of people there.
--The wedding is not formal. The ceremony is being held outside (weather permitting) and there is a halloween theme with costumes encouraged.
--If the baby arrives at 42 weeks, and just 2 weeks before the wedding, we probably wouldn't attend.
--I'm trying to convince DH that kids can be portable. He's less convinced.
So, people with kids -- tell me -- Could this potentially be okay? Or is this an awful idea?
