Stop, breathe and remember this is your day. Tell them NO and be firm about it. You follow thru on your vision and screw the rest!!!

@oneovakind:  The only thing you owe your guests is comfort, meaing making sure the ceremony and reception are not to ofar apart and there is ample food, they are safe and the AC works.

That being said, THIS.IS.YOUR.WEDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you do not want children, that is the rule. NO ONE gets an exception. You have a small venue.

Do NOT let people drag you into THEIR issues. Tell them nicely “I’m sorry you are having issues BUT I do not wish to be in the middle of them. Whomever is invited to my wedding is invited”Please inform that person you will NOT hesitate to call the police and have them arrested if they start a fight.

Wedding planning will give you a backbone. USE IT LOL.

@oneovakind:  PS-Stop taking your FMIL’s phone calls. If you do and she starts up, “I need to go, that is my doctor calling” and hang up asap.

It isn’t hard to please everyone, it is impossible! Focus on pleasing yourself. But in a non dirty sounding way. 🙂 At the end of the day, it is your wedding and you should only surround yourself with those you want to celebrate with and who will be happy for you. That does not have to include children at all! It might be better to just not have children because making exceptions makes the waters muddy. But I surely wouldn’t want badly behaved children at my reception.
