@sharky:  Just going to throw this out there but if your parents are “uninvolved/uninterested/incapable” of helping with your wedding you should have contacted your family member directly and told them your mother was mistaken.  And then NOT had your dad call to confirm their RSVP.

@sharky:  They are already rude so I see no issuse with calling them and saying the 3 children can not come. They will be taking a seat away from someone and no one else is bringing children. I personally would enjoy their reaction hehehe

@sharky:  I think you need to stick to your guns here, especially if you are paying for the wedding yourself. If your mother is paying, then I can see her having some say over your guest list, but if she’s not? No way! They are being rude to you, so you are perfectly within your rights to reiterate what you’ve already said – no children, and only the folks who received an invitation are actually invited.

@sharky: You’re paying for it. Forget hurt feelings. I would call and say, “Sorry, no kids.” It’s not too late.
