Allergic Child no longer invited to wedding
My sister's wedding in in one week, I am a bridesmaid, my husband was asked to be an alter boy. We have three children who were invited as well as long as we have a baby sitter with them. Our 1-year-old has milk, dairy, peanut, tree nut, wheat and oat allergies. For the last several months I have been trying to talk to my sister as well as my mother about the reception place and their cross contamination policies which was never met with any response. I would pack his food so there really won't be an issue. I actually have stickers for him that say don't feed me and lists is allergies. Three weeks ago we were told that our child was no longer invited to the wedding by my parents but the other two non-allergic children were invited . An argument happened, etc (I did try to talk to my sister, the bride but she would not return calls or emails). I then had my husband call the groom and talk everything over with him. THe groom assured us that our son was in fact invited, and everything was fine. Well today we received a phone call from the groom stating that my sister and my parents told him, he was to call us and tell us to no longer bring our son. We have decided to no longer take part in their wedding and will not be attending any events. I try to talk to my parents and they did not return my calls, so I did call the groom and explain why we would no longer be involved or attending anything. Has anyone dealt with anything similar to this?
