"This no kids wedding shit is for the birds"
Mon Feb-10-20 10:46 AM by MEAT

  

          

Second friend getting married that wants to have a no kids policy
I’ll go along with it because it’s local, but this is the last one
Like folks are really out here treating kids like pets. Out entire life is shaped around this kid, particularly at this age.
Shit feels like, come to my wedding but don’t bring your spouse.

      You make some concessions. Others you don't. It's YOUR choice.
Feb 10th 2020

      Pets are pets, kids are kids.
Feb 10th 2020
13
      LOL Replace "pets" with "kids" in my example, then.
Feb 10th 2020
15
           No. You’re using kids as solely am emotional attachment
Feb 10th 2020
21
                Do you take your kid to work with you everyday? End post
Feb 10th 2020
23
                checkmate!
Feb 10th 2020
26
                I check that app all day every day and message back with the teachers
Feb 10th 2020

                     So that’s a no
Feb 10th 2020
48
                          I’m ... not. That dude: kids are like pets
Feb 10th 2020
57
                               I just asked if you bring them to work
Feb 10th 2020
82
                                    i don’t bring my kid to work. No.
Feb 10th 2020
130
                I'm not using kids as anything. I have no idea what your relationship .....
Feb 10th 2020
24
      you lost EVERY parent with that Pets analogy fam...
Feb 10th 2020
16
           But then replaced "pets" with "kids" and the same point applies.
Feb 10th 2020
19
      Unfortunately, people just aren't that conscientious anymore....

      Maybe someday you'll get invited to a wedding...and you'll understand
Feb 10th 2020
64
           My man if I was never invited to a wedding again it'd be too soon.
Feb 10th 2020
66
                how many of em had kids in attendance?
Feb 10th 2020
75
                     Less than half. Probably less than a quarter actually.
Feb 10th 2020
81
                          Do you have kids?
Feb 10th 2020
84
                               I do not.
Feb 10th 2020

Feb 10th 2020
93
                                              I wasn't trying to assume. Like...Legs got kids...so I at least could ta...
Feb 10th 2020
96
                                                   You don't have to have kids to understand what is and isn't your place.
Feb 10th 2020
99
                                                        I think you're missing a part of the dialogue.
Feb 10th 2020
103
                                                             He isn’t missing anything. Either go or stay home
Feb 10th 2020
108
      Rude people are rude with or without kids.
Feb 10th 2020
27
      seems like a way to get a smaller audience at the wedding.
Feb 10th 2020
39
           Now that's how you react like an adult !
Feb 10th 2020
40
           why are you so upset about this? lol
Feb 10th 2020
46
                Self-important people annoy me.
Feb 10th 2020
52
           it's NOT a bad idea at all....but some people's situations are different
Feb 10th 2020
67
                Or to use up that resource on your wedding.
Feb 10th 2020
71
                     yeah THAT part...if WE stumbled upon some good babysitter...we DAMN
Feb 10th 2020
78
                     You prob just shouldnt go to weddings then
Feb 10th 2020
83
                     Oh I'm good on weddings at this point in my life...there's only ONE more...
Feb 10th 2020
88
                          maybe that's the diff.
Feb 10th 2020
112
                               They will be fine with or without me, I’m not moving anyone’s needle
Feb 10th 2020
139
                                    bro. they're asking you to not come.
Feb 11th 2020
187
                                    that's fine that you think is whack, but
Feb 11th 2020
195
                                    LOLOLOL @ inappropriate.
Feb 11th 2020
202
                     It’s never a waste to use a good baby sitter
Feb 10th 2020
90
                     that goes back to don't go.
Feb 10th 2020
117
      Lmao.. nah, all that shit is stuff YOU wanted to do for family
Feb 10th 2020

kids make receptions way better, imo
Feb 10th 2020

^^^Stands in THIS line^^^^
Feb 10th 2020
17
See reply three
Feb 10th 2020
5
      Right. So you're assuming every parent is good.
Feb 10th 2020
7
           Kids act how they’re allowed to act
Feb 10th 2020
11
Precisely why there's an option to decline...
Feb 10th 2020
6
Right !
Feb 10th 2020
10
In both of these situations the folks have reached out to invite
Feb 10th 2020
12
      I agree that it's inappropriate not to make that request right away.
Feb 10th 2020
20
      So this isn’t really about the no kids thing, this is more about
Feb 10th 2020
34
      well yeah, that's understandable.
Feb 10th 2020
37
      then this is the only thing they've done that's out of pocket
Feb 10th 2020
73
      so you're upset about a "save the date" notification?..
Feb 10th 2020

Man, just enjoy a few hours with your wife and friends
Feb 10th 2020

Also, people's kids take invites from other people.

      Then the post should've been a bitch fest about late changes.
Feb 10th 2020
33
      Just saw that but that’s on MEAT for not putting in original post.
Feb 10th 2020
35
      My original point still stands
Feb 10th 2020
43
           That sounds like a you problem
Feb 10th 2020
55
                Whack shit is whack shit no matter how it affects me
Feb 10th 2020
132
                     nope. if it's your wedding, you make the rules

I hadn’t even thought of having to feed kids lol
Feb 10th 2020

People no show all the time
Feb 10th 2020
50
Sounds like that's probably what you should do.
Feb 10th 2020

^^^THIS. Especially if there's an open bar.
Feb 10th 2020

      $75 isn’t breaking nobodies bank in this situation
Feb 10th 2020
134
           This was 14 years ago. And that $75 added up quickly.
Feb 10th 2020
173
                Not every person with a kid wants to bring their kid
Feb 10th 2020
177
                     if white folks are the only people you know spending that kind of money
Feb 11th 2020
188
I think some are missing a few points
Feb 10th 2020
44
#2 I got a 2 year old.
Feb 10th 2020
51
The point is, that's all a "you" problem.
Feb 10th 2020

hang on now...
Feb 10th 2020
169
Nobody is missing anything. None of that is relevant.
Feb 10th 2020

Defeats purpose of weddings

Feb 10th 2020

Feb 10th 2020

           What if other guests hate black people
Feb 10th 2020
141
                ... thank you for making my point.
Feb 10th 2020
146
                     Your point is what? Ranking guest preferences against each other?
Feb 10th 2020
149
                          No my point is that by using your logic of "respecting your guests"
Feb 10th 2020
151
                               You’re doing a lot in here.
Feb 10th 2020

      right! the whole concept is just stoooopid....
Feb 10th 2020
70
      Not even close to being stupid.
Feb 10th 2020
76
      There will be kids at the wedding... just not YOUR KIDS
Feb 10th 2020
72
           that seems even more fucked up lol
Feb 10th 2020
77
                Kids in the show/wedding but not in the audience
Feb 10th 2020

      lol mexicans and super christian wypipo

Feb 10th 2020
154
                          I’m entitled because I called something whack?
Feb 10th 2020
157
                               Your entitled is entitled
Feb 10th 2020
161
                                    That’s a reach.
Feb 10th 2020

Feb 10th 2020

If it was out of town we probably wouldn’t want to take her no way
Feb 10th 2020

Feb 10th 2020

There are several categories of people in this post...

Feb 10th 2020
145
Not sure how y'all don't see the slight in this...
Feb 10th 2020
104
Damn y'all really need to get over yourselves.
Feb 10th 2020
105
Damn y'all really need to learn some etiquette.
Feb 10th 2020
109
Oh the irony.
Feb 10th 2020
110
People that hate kids are shitty anyway. Don’t invite THEM.
Feb 10th 2020
111
      LOL
Feb 10th 2020
113
      people that hate kids don't actually hate kids
Feb 10th 2020
115
           i've never been to a wedding where a child stole the show
Feb 10th 2020
118
           Me neither... but since I’m going there to drink and eat their shit up
Feb 10th 2020
121

You really need to not be so entitled.
Feb 10th 2020
137
Like, for real
Feb 11th 2020
197
it just seems like putting the ceremony too high on a pedestal
Feb 10th 2020
114
Umm.. it’s a wedding. It’s literally the most high ceremony
Feb 10th 2020
123
Or the onus could be on the guest to leave them kids at home
Feb 10th 2020
116
So basically, y’all just care about getting that registry fulfilled.
Feb 10th 2020
125
      they just inviting you because your wife is friends with the bride

Doesn’t make the request not whack
Feb 10th 2020
138

Feb 10th 2020
119
You're really out here thinking a wedding is about you and your kid
Feb 10th 2020
131
I'm playing devils advocate, but i honestly didn't know it was a thing
Feb 10th 2020
136
i don’t think anyone in my actual family would do that
Feb 10th 2020
158
pretty much. I have no real beef with it.
Feb 10th 2020

Maybe its cause i'm from the South? idk

LOL this is probably the smartest reply in here
Feb 10th 2020
170
you know how it is. you know *too many people* who are getting married
Feb 10th 2020
175
I 100% agree.
Feb 10th 2020
176
Plus, didn't you high five your then-fiance when people RSVP no?
Feb 10th 2020
178
      definitely would have, but we did a small wedding
Feb 10th 2020
179
      but yeah, it's a favor that goes both ways
Feb 10th 2020
180
I'm having a "no kids" funeral.
Feb 10th 2020

That's A+ pettiness right there.
Feb 10th 2020

Feb 10th 2020

is this a white thing??? i have never heard of such a thing before
Feb 10th 2020

it really depends on who you kick it with
Feb 11th 2020
189
Breweries are great for parents with kids.
Feb 11th 2020
193
      Nah, keep your kids out of adult places
Feb 11th 2020
198
      Lmao... go to any brewery on a weekend and it’s like a playground
Feb 11th 2020
199
      Only if they have kid specific areas
Feb 11th 2020
200
      It’s pretty hard to get shit faced drunk at a brewery
Feb 11th 2020
201
      it was a place where peopledo bring kids
Feb 11th 2020
240
Nah, I do think it's some millennial shit though...they the only ones
Feb 11th 2020
191
Nah. It’s boughetto shit
Feb 11th 2020
194
LMAO... you sound goofy as hell.
Feb 11th 2020
203
      Ehhh, wasn’t a thing people requests 20 years ago
Feb 11th 2020
204
           Compare the cost of the average wedding now to 20 years ago
Feb 11th 2020
206
           I don’t think this has to do with money
Feb 11th 2020
211
           None of this is new...
Feb 11th 2020
207
                Can y’all clarify the entitlement angle, because I’m not seeing it
Feb 11th 2020
210
                You said something like “they took away my choice to parent”
Feb 11th 2020
213
                They aren’t allowing a parent decision
Feb 11th 2020
215
                     that's the entitlement.
Feb 11th 2020
218
                     That’s not an entitlement that’s a want
Feb 11th 2020
225
                     They aren’t allowing you to bring the kid.
Feb 11th 2020
222
                you think they need to cater to you and your desires....for their weddin...
Feb 11th 2020
228
                I ... don’t though.
Feb 11th 2020
246
                     if you're not the person getting married or paying for it your opinion.....
Feb 11th 2020
251
                     This is the most loserish shit I’ve ever heard.
Feb 11th 2020
258
                     you literally do, based on everything you've actually said.
Feb 11th 2020
259
                          If I don’t express this to the couple what’s the problem?
Feb 11th 2020
263
                               Your opinion comes from YOU. it's an expression of YOU. it's YOU.
Feb 11th 2020
266
                                    Man I posted on a message board.
Feb 11th 2020
267
                                         ......and cue the ad hominem, lmao.
Feb 11th 2020
268
                                              It's not that serious to address, points, there's no points
Feb 11th 2020
269
                                                   it was serious enough for you to make personal attacks
Feb 11th 2020
271
                                                        Would it help if I said sorry? You do a lot in every post
Feb 11th 2020
274
                                                             You express opinions, but don't actually own them.
Feb 11th 2020
276
                                                                  Dude. Ok.
Feb 11th 2020
277
                You don't get to decide who attends someone else's wedding...
Feb 11th 2020
