@CwgrlBabe2000:You need to nip this in the bud straight away. Children are children, whether they’re 7 or 17. It is your FH’s job to CALL his groomsman and tell him this is NOT acceptable and that there will be a spot reserved for HIM and his girlfriend. HE needs to do this now.

Um. Wow. That’s ridiculous, and also kinda hilarious. Glad to hear your FI is dealing with it.

Whose children?  The girlfriend’s children?  The groomsman’s?

Perhaps your FI could suggest that granny babysit the children since none of them are welcome at your wedding.

Plus 6! omg, people have some nerve. If someone tried to add 6 people, I’d send them an invoice for $900, to cover the added food, drinks, table rental, linens, centrepieces etc it would cost to have them there.

WHAT?! “Don’t forget”?? Uh, I’m sure you DID NOT forget whose names were on the invite list and therefore put on the invite. And on a sticky note, nonetheless? My jaw dropped. 

I worry like CRAZY over this as well, since we’re having adults only. The only exception will be my 3 first cousins, since FI is inviting all of his and they are my only ones (Mind you, my aunt would bring them even if they weren’t invited). I’m convinced we should put “Adult’s Only” on the invite somewhere, but my parent’s are adamant that people will understand by who we address it to (ie, without the “And Family”, etc). sigh, just because YOU always understood it, doesn’t mean everyone else will… especially after reading all these other related posts about RSVPs. I know I’ll be calling/emailing people telling them that their snot-nosed kids aren’t invited…

@MightySapphire: Ha, I was just going to suggest that. Grandma and the 5 little (or not so little) ones can have a family party of their own!

Plus 6? Don’t forget? What is this woman, a neanderthal???

Listen, you don’t need any reasons why you don’t want kids. It’s your wedding, end of story.

It sounds like you handled it perfectly with your email to GF.  Seriously, what nerve.  I am dying to know … do your or your FI even know “Grandma?”

@indibee:lol this made me think of the broadcasts they do from bars in athletes home towns. Maybe you can pipe in a live feed of your wedding to a local Chuck e Cheese and all the kids could celebrate with you from there 😀

@CwgrlBabe2000: Good for you! Your approach was spot on. Some people just don’t get it.
