As most brides and grooms-to-be have found out, it’s impossible to please everyone with your wedding plans .
No matter how far you bend over backwards and how much you agonise over every little detail, there’s usually at least one person who takes umbrage to something.
Occasionally, however, couples do make requests which are genuinely either insensitive, awkward or even upsetting to their fellow guests.
One new mum recently found herself wondering if she should go to the wedding of her husband’s best friend (at which he’s best man) – because of a note she found tucked into her invitation.
There, nestled among details about the day was a letter asking ALL mums bringing their babies to refrain from breastfeeding them on the day, unless in a designated area.
“To all our mommies who are breastfeeding, we are thinking of you”
So it begins nicely. But it’s not long before it takes a slight turn.
“We are sensitive to the fact you may need to breastfeed during our event, therefore we have designated an appropriate place for you to feed your baby so that you do not have to do so in public in front of our Family and Friends .
“For your convenience we are accommodating you with a comfortable and private area with chairs and baby blankets in the ladies room.
“We request that you use this area when you are breastfeeding. Thank you.”
The mum revealed there had been several arguments in the past about her “breastfeeding ways.”
“They have multiple times voiced that I need to go elsewhere to do that in ‘private!'” she added.
