A woman was left shocked when her brother uninvited her children from his wedding.
The mum revealed her 10-year-old kids have never been to a wedding and were thrilled to get an invite to their uncle’s big day.
However, due to a big guest list, the woman said her children have been uninvited and there’s now a “no kid policy”.
Writing on Mumsnet, the woman said: “They are 10 and very sensible so would not be kicking off in the ceremony.
“They have never been to a wedding before, there are not other kids in our family so this was a big deal to them.
“They are now uninvited because the guest list is too big so there is a no kid policy to exclude the kids of the brides cousins and other guests’ kids.
“I know it’s their wedding, they can invite who they like but I feel really sad that my kids will miss the wedding of the uncle they idolise and they will be so disappointed that they now can’t come.”
She continued: “I really don’t know whether to tell my brother and his fiancé that it’s quite upsetting or just to pretend we are all fine with it.
“I also am thinking I should pass the uninviting job to my brother and let him explain the reversal of invite.
“It was more of a general conversation like the kids saying, ‘wow that’s so exciting can we come’, ‘yes course you can’.
“My DB [dear brother] did say they were having a general no kid rule with the exception of my kids and a few other specific kids.”
Fellow users shared their thoughts and advised the woman, with one person telling her to tell her brother to “explain himself to them”.
The person commented: “It’s [expletive] of them to invite them then uninvite them. Tell your brother he has to explain it to them himself.”
Another said: “Don’t go. It is totally unfair to tell children they are invited and then decide not to.
“Tell your brother you are all going as a family (as originally planned and apparently agreed by him) or none of you are.”
However, another person told the mum to “suck it up”.
They wrote: “I find sometimes close family assume that their kids will be invited and then are a bit upset when it comes to the invites, to find the kids aren’t actually invited.
“I think suck it up in this situation as you’d be unreasonable to demand a say in who they invite.”
Another added: “It’s disappointing but I think your brother and his fiancée are under a huge amount of stress so I think you should try to be understanding about the whole thing.”
