My Fiance and I spent this weekend with his family and his mother found out we’re not inviting any kids aside from immediate family (his niece and nephew). (It’s a numbers game-we did the math and it would be over 30 mostly preschoolers). She was NOT happy. She wanted us to make known that she does not agree with us (ha). So I am announcing it to the bees. FYI, my Future Mother-In-Law does not agree with us.
PS. I had to tell my lone cousin yesterday that her kids weren’t invited and it sucked. We have a tiny family and I’d love to include her boys. I just don’t see how I can without opening up the floodgates.

Your wedding, your choice. We had a kid free wedding because neither of our siblings had children. That would have been our only exception. I think that as long as you understand that this might result in a few extra declines, there’s nothing wrong with your decision. And I say this as someone with kids.

Tell her it has been duly noted.

30 preschoolers?! lol nope.
I have gone to a wedding and the amount of kids running around ruined the wedding. And I think there were only 12-15 kids. They were playing hide and seek under the tables, running though the seating, and took over the dancefloor to the point where no one really danced, they were rolling around and dragging each other on the floor. You are making a smart decision.

Omg 30 preschoolers…
Your Future Mother-In-Law should be happy her grandkids are the exception! Oh well…some people will always find a way to disagree.

The reason we said no kids (aside from the Flower Girl who is also FI’s god-daughter) is that it would have been all preschoolers and the wedding is at night. I think we can do without small children who are tired and grumpy that their dinner is probably a lot later than usual (dinner will be around 7:30-8:00). Flower Girl is 10 and mature enough to handle herself. Thankfully no one complained. They didn’t want to bring them anyway!
Yes, Future Mother-In-Law, duly noted. 😛

*Eye roll* don’t worry about it! If you and your Fiance agree you don’t want kids there then don’t! And 30 preschoolers??? I don’t blame you for not wanting them at an evening wedding.

Let her know to snag some pearls to clutch in disapproval next time. Really adds drama.

Would she like some cheese for the whine?

Does she want to pay for the 30 meals?
The Bee hive anxiously awaits her check.

My Future Sister-In-Law was the same way. Told us that it was rude to not invite the guests children. I said “Nope, what is rude is when parents let their children at weddings and they end up on the dance floor during my first dance or my father/daughter dance, or when children scream and cry during the ceremony or can’t sit still.” I personally believe that weddings in general, aren’t child friendly. We aren’t even having our ceremony start until 6:30pm, dinner isn’t until 7:45/8pm and we are having an open bar. My friends and family are too crazy…the last thing they need is to be bringing their chidlren. But we are inviting my Future Sister-In-Law kids (they are 10 and 6) and she keeps saying they will be fine. I am sure they will be bored by the time the ceremony is over but I knew that if we didn’t have them, we would have had to deal with a lot more drama.
