My fiance and I have to keep our guest list to a minimum due to the size of our venue. It was hard to remove some people we wanted to invite but it is what it is.
We just sent out our save the dates and already running into trouble. We are invititing my aunt and uncle but did not invite their 4 kids. We are trying to avoid kids across everyone. Well, turns out they assumed they are all invited and now my step mom (its her brother) is upset and thinks they will not come at all.
I am now upset and feel like I have to invite but I am worried about running out of space. Anyone else have an issue like this and what did you do?

@Futuremrsjamiipeterson: They shouldn’t be angry, just explain your situation with space and that you’re looking for an intimate event without kids running rampant.
How was the STD addressed?

@Futuremrsjamiipeterson: One of my BFs is getting married in July and she has had the same issue. In her case it was her FI’s cousin who thought they could bring their two kids. She had her Future Mother-In-Law call the couple and inform them that they are short on space and unfortunately the kids can’t come… it’s always an awkard conversation to have but if you are limiting kids across the board then that is an even better excuse/reason (meanwhile, my Boyfriend or Best Friend is inviting some guests’ children but not all lol)
May I ask how old these kids are and whether you even have a relationship with them?
I think you should be straight forward w/ your step mom and hopefully she and her brother are understanding of the fact that space is limited!
