I want to start off by saying I am so very sorry that you are going through this. I can’t begin to imagine the heartache this is causing all of you.

I’m opposed to the idea of the mother being able to attend at all. I understand she “served her time” and what not and she is his mother. However, you can say no kids to your other guests, but what about your own? They are obviously going to attend if not be part of your wedding. If I were in your shoes, I would be frantic all day keeping my eyes on them, instead of focusing on yourself and the commitement you are making to your Fiance.

When you say your vows, I want you to have peace of mind your children are safe and savor those irreplacable moments with your Fiance, not staring at them out of the corner of your eye to reassure yourself they’re safe.

Maybe your Future Mother-In-Law can be a part of the ceremony and not the reception. It would be easier to keep a close eye on children when everyone is seated anyway. I’d really hate to have a children-free wedding, but it wouldn’t be a good idea to have your Future Mother-In-Law around them.

so your Future Sister-In-Law still doesn’t know the whole story?  maybe it might be time to have your Fiance break it to her….
