- Wedding: July 2012
So my fiance and I decided to invite only children of our family members to our wedding/reception. It seems the majority of our guest list doesn’t understand that only the names on the envelope are invited. I’ve had to tell several families that we had to limit it to children of family only, its all we have room for…blah blah blah. Some families have older children (like in high school) who weren’t invited but at this point I’m sick of dealing with it.
Here’s the tricky part!: One family (my FH coaches on a high school bball team and this guy is the head coach…has become sort of a mentor to him) has 2 children: one in high school (he was a manager on the team), and one who’s like 7. Neither of the 2 kids were invited but they RSVP’d for all 4 of them. With the age difference I feel its kind of hard to give them the usual speech…So do I just say “we only have room for you and your wife” or do I just let them figure out which one of their kids is old enough to attend even though I feel like it would be awkward to leave one kid home.
At this point I really don’t care if the 7 year old comes but like I said, I’ve already explained to a bunch of families (some of them multiple times) and I’m not willing to make exceptions for some and not others.
