You will have to call back and explain that kids are not invited. Use the excuse that the venue doesn’t allow them on the premises for safety issues if that is what you need to.

Tell him the kid isn’t allowed.In my opinion, you cant break the rules for him and not everyone else. Also, he had plenty of time to switch the weekend with the child’s mother.

That is a tough one. He shouldn’t have RSVPed the 6 yr old, but on the other hand, that is the only weekend that month that they will see her. You can talk to him or have your FI talk to him about it, but if I was him, I wouldn’t come at all, if I couldn’t bring the daughter, so that is something you will have to prepare yourself for or make an exception.

Your fiance needs to handle this, as it is his family.  Either your fiance or his mother should call the uncle and see if perhaps the daughter can switch weekends.  If they cannot switch, then he has the choice to get a babysitter or not to come.

He may not have been able to switch the weekend, if that is the way it is written in the court order.

What about getting a sitter for the little girl. You or someone you know might know a reliable one that can keep the girl occupied during the ceremony and reception.

There is nothing tough about this issue. I’d have your or fiances mother or father (whosever brother it is) call and explain children are not allowed and if he can’t attend you’re very sorry.  People not understanding the no child thing is getting really old. Just because you have a child does not give the right to impose that child on another person/family member. If you can’t make it or find a sitter for 2-3 hours send your regrets. It is not a couples job to arrange a sitter for you. This issue obviously irritates me 😛
