@Pinkmoon:  Agreed. This is straightforward, but friendly. Gets the point across without being nasty.

@Laurengrapes:  Since your FI kinda left is unresolved, I would say what @Pinkmoon:  said, its right to the point and obvious that the kids cannot bring their partners.

Very similar thing happened at my brother’s wedding!  Except my brother didn’t even know the kids had boyfriends, because they talk to us so infrequently.  one couple hadn’t even started dating til 2 months before the invitation.  haha.

 

After threats and emotional warfare and a fight that tore my family apart, the kids and my aunt/uncle won, and they brought the uninvited guests and partied it up on my brother’s dime.

 

If I learned anything from the misery of that experience it is that somethings just aren’t worth fighting over.  I’ve cut out other people so these random strangers and cousins I don’t talk to can attend my wedding, because I’d rather have that then deal with the nonsense caused at my brother’s wedding (he was married in June 2013 :)).
