Ask Amy: Wedding drama leads to devastation

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: My husband's niece is getting married. I'm so happy for her.

There has been much talk about the wedding. We already received the save-the-date.

Several wedding-related conversations have been held in front of my 12-year-old daughter.

In front of the family, I told my daughter that we could get her a beautiful dress to wear to the wedding. We then bought a dress.

Then the wedding invitation arrived in the mail: NO CHILDREN ALLOWED!

I was completely devastated – to say the least.


Then, I found out that there are children attending the wedding, but they have to be over the age of 15.

My daughter was really upset when I told her that she wasn't invited to the wedding.

I feel that the family should have taken me aside in advance to let me know my daughter was excluded.

I declined going to the wedding due to my daughter’s disappointment.
