My fiance's brother and sister in law have an 8 month old baby, their 3 year old will be at the children's table but do I have to have the baby at the top table with us? I don't want it to turn into a creche and have her in a high chair with us? Would it be rude to ask my sister in law to be to give her to an Aunt to look after during dinner?

  • I think that would be completely fair, it would only be for a couple of hours while the food and speeches are on. You need to make sure you enjoy the day first and foremost :)

  • If you have a sweet heart table it would be jus the two which would avoid any potential feelings getting hurt. The majority of the weddings we are the photographers & videographers for have the sweet heart table and it works out really well.

  • While I agree with Sadie and Toni with their comments they are good solutions, I would suggest to soften the talk, to have the 8 months old either at beginning or end of the main ceramonywith the mother and take few extra pictures with them together and move to aunts table which would be close by to mom, would also honor your sister in law and she would perfectly understand the case. Plus probably there will be many photo shoot by professional photographer but also by your guests and your little guest would not feek comfy at the main table. It's a valid point parents would appreciate. Congratulations and good luck.

  • It's outstandingly rude. Why allow people to bring children if you're just going to make everyone feel awkward by asking other members of the family to feed their children? Are you sure the aunt will be far enough away? Why not get them to eat from the sink in the toilet? Alternatively, why not enjoy the fact that you've got a baby there? They're cute. They do funny things. If your wedding day is so eye-bleedingly precious that a baby doing a poo in your general vicinity is going to ruin it, then you need to prepare yourself for a huge disappointment. No day will be as perfect as you're trying to make it and you are Bridezilla.
