I think you have a good attitude about this. Yes some people are going to be upset, and as we are not having kids at all at the wedding, it definitely upset people on our end too.

People will get over it, trust me. They need to realize it’s about the two of you as a couple, not about their kids.

You know what sometimes you just gotta do it. There is always that extenuating circumstance that you just aren’t going to get around. Don’t feel bad about it. You have drawn a line and if their is one exception to that line I think that is ok. There is always going to be someone poo pooing on your parade.

I feel your pain.  It is your day, do what you want and invite who you want.  I think that the parents are initially upset that their kids aren’t invited, but come your wedding day they will be able to enjoy an adult evening celebrating with you, and take a break form being mommy and daddy.  I too have 3 younger cousins that I am very close to that I didn’t even hesitate to invite, even though our wedding was initially no kids (MIL got her way and now there is a whole gaggle of wee ones that are invited, Arg!)

In the end what makes you two happy is the right way!  I do love the clarity that can come from a good nights sleep.

I think inviting a well behaved 9 year old is different than a 5 year old. Regardless it’s your wedding, do what makes you and Fiance happy.
