    If other kids are already going to be at the ceremony, then I have a feeling this will become a huge problem. Is the ceremony venue really going to notice two kids?

    If you think those two kids are going to put you over the limit, then you should explain honestly why it could be an issue.

    @midwestgirl80:  I think that would be fine! It’s not like her kids were invited, expecially if you let her know if you do have room. It’s not a “I don’t want your kids there” Its a “I’m sorry the venue said no more than 125 people, if someone sends me a decline on the RSVP, I’ll let you know asap!”

    @Brittanyg20:  I agree with this.

    I would also mention to her that the other cousin’s kids won’t be there either. If the kids can’t hang out with their family they might not be as interested in attending. How about…

    “The venue’s max is 125 so unfortunately we couldn’t accomodate all of the cousin’s kids. We don’t mind squeezing yours in if there’s a cancellation though.:

     I am guessing the historical village is probably Greenfield Village just from the clues. I would differently say that if there room they are welcome to come but other wise let them know what the cost of the measuem and village are in which the children would be able to wonder through. If i am guessing right the village and the measuem can be very pricey but you could also mention the IMAX as potenial place of entertainment but this is off course assuming that I am guessing right.
