In a perfect world... You can celebrate your favorite cousin's nuptials and finally introduce the baby to her extended family. The invite didn't say "Kids welcome," but your child's an infant. (And she's a super adorable one at that!)
The reality The bride, groom, and guests may be less than thrilled by uninvited guests who don't only cry at weddings—they shriek!
Our advice If the envelope doesn't say "And family," your child probably isn't invited and you'll need a sitter. Some couples offer guests free on-site babysitting, usually in a room at the hotel or reception hall, so you can dash off to nurse or cuddle your infant in between the "Chicken Dance" and "Hot Hot Hot." Otherwise, the bride or groom may be able to steer you toward other parents who could share a sitter.
