As the homeowners and the hosts of the wedding will bear the liability if there is any accident involving the children and the pool, I think not only do you have the right, but I suggest many would advise that you do not have children at the wedding.

It is so easy for parents to take their eyes off their children when distracted at a social event.

I would hire the sitters and tell the Future Sister-In-Law that she is welcome to visit the children in the house as often as she wants.

I’m not inviting any adults under 21. We are at the far conservative end of no kids allowed. Once you invite one or two someone else is rightfully bound to be upset with their children not being invited. That said we are just having a simple party and can’t afford the under 21’s.

IMO – the pool is the big danger. You could pay a sitter but unless the children are not allowed outside and there are sitters I wouldn’t do it. People don’t watch their kids 100% of the time (nobody can). Some of the kids will likely end up outside. With there being a pool involved I wouldn’t even want to risk something happening. Weddings are lould and someone falling into a pool is very unnoticable. Theres a better chance of it raining purple that day than the chance of someone you love’s child being injuried or killed, but I wouldn’t be the one to risk that.
