- Wedding: July 2009
So, we did not invite any “kids” with the exception of my 2 first cousins (age 16 and 12) and my fiance’s neices and nephew who are in the wedding (age 3,5, and 8). We did this because we already invited 350 people and if we invited everyone’s kids, even adolescents, we’d have easily invited 450+. Anyway my dad’s cousin has been REALLY upset by this (us not inviting his 13 yo son) and has been talking behind our backs about it to everyone who will listen..his parents RSVP’d no becaue of it (but now changed their response and are grudgingly coming), etc. Well, after calling like every family member to make sure we hadn’t lied when we explained that we just did no kids across the board, we heard that now he is saying that he is bringing his son anyway and will share his meal and seat with him.
How rude is that? And they are missing the whole point! It’s not that we can’t afford one more meal, its that we are trying to be consistent and DON’T WANT ALL THESE KIDS! It is an adult affair! I’m so mad! My mom thinks I should just be rude back, and be cool at the wedding… she is livid. My dad is offended that they are being so rude about it and taking it so personal. I don’t know what to do. I’m tempted to call this guy myself and say something, but I don’t really even know him. Any advice on how to handle it???
