@montrealjulybride:  I’m all for kid-free weddings, but with no exceptions.  It rubs me the wrong way when people make exception for some children regardless if they are in BP or not.  :/

I also don’t think your cus is in the right trying to blackmail you.

I also don’t think a 13 year old is a child. 13 year olds are very capable of comprehending a wedding and prob won’t start screaming mid ceremony.

Maybe make the cut off age 11 or 12?

She’s not being fair to you and has a lot of nerve trying to strong arm you after you made your position clear.   Her stepdaughter will just have to get over it.  Practice repeating yourself politely and firmly until she gets the message.

@montrealjulybride:  politely thank her for her offer of SD help with the DIY projects, but also politely decline. Stick to your orignal stance that its a kid free event, except for those 2 that are in the bridal party. That’s all there really is to say.
