What did the invite say? Was it addressed to just you and your husband or did it say "...and Family" or have LO's name on it. That's the best way to know if your LO is invited.
LoriZoo:That's a wide gap in time between the ceremony and the reception...what gives?
No idea. But, I'm glad b/c then I can wear just a nice shirt/pants to the ceremony that's easy for nursing and then change for the reception.
Agreed...huge gap, what are you doing between the ceremony and reception?

It was just to DH and me. I guess that means she isn't invited, but I always think of that as being more for the reception. I'd only bring her to the ceremony.
The wedding wouldn't be in upstate NY, would it? lol
DH's cousin is getting married Sat and it's the same - ceremony at 1, reception at 6.
Could your parents watch LO for the ceremony, you go get LO after than drop back off on your way to the reception?

We'll just go to my parents. They won't be home, but we'll hang out there and wait for them to get home, so we can change and head to the reception. That way LO can nap etc and get comfortable there.

Ha. No, it's in Philly. They won't be home during the time of the ceremony, so I either go alone or we all go. :)
Sounds like the catholic gap to me. Ceremony has to be early because they have to get the church ready in time for Saturday evening mass, but no one wants to start the reception at 4pm. I've gotten quite used to that.
I would ask the bride. If she says yes, have the plan that DH will take LO if she gets fussy. If bride says no, just have DH watch LO until you get home.
I took my DD to my cousins wedding when she was 11 weeks old. I held her but DH would have taken her outside if she got fussy. She was perfect though! Slept the entire time. I told my cousin that DD's wedding gift was to not make a peep at the ceremony. She qas great at the reception too. GL!
Sounds like it could be a Catholic wedding. How about calling the parish and asking if they have a cry room? All the Catholic churches around us have a semi-integrated room with speakers that is sound-proof. Your DH could just start in there, but still attend with you.
That's what we did for my Grandma's funeral mass - I participated in the mass and DH and B stayed in the cry room for the entire thing as to not disturb the service at all.
We took DD to a wedding at 2 months. We fed her through the ceremony, and she was fine. Oh, and she started pooping (and grunting loudly) at the end, so DH just took her outside. :) Lol!
I would ask the bride and then move on from there; she'll be able to give you a definite answer of what she wants.
