- Wedding: September 2013
My FI and I have pared down our wedding guest list to Max 60 people (if everyone shows up). On his list are a bunch of people with VERY small kids, and the families are going to have to travel 12 hours just to get to our wedding. I know FI wants the parents of the kids there a lot, but Im also of the opinion that its pretty unlikely that they’ll come to the wedding at all because of their small (some very small) kids.
We are having the reception in a small room (befitting 60 people)with low ceilings, and I am pretty unhappy about allowing kids to come. FI thinks its more likely that his friends will come if the kids are allowed, but I feel like since its highly unlikely that they’ll be attending anyway and four or five kids under 3 in a small room with low ceilings is a recipe for disaster, we should state that kids are not invited – Seriously, I would disinvite my 6 year old brother if I could because he is not a kid that does groups or late nights well.
I feel really heartless but since this is already not the wedding we had planned (a long and depressing tale of its own) I want to make it as lovely as possible… and that might mean No babies.
Does anyone have any thoughts? What would you do? What do you think? How did you deal with kids at your tiny reception?
