    Is it possible to NOT invite kids, but have it in New York? Or is that a big family no-no?

    How much do you care about having extended family there?

    SEems like your not a fanof kids…I like the bed and brekky option 1…since your aunt owns it…why dont you ask her for a spacious room and have it as a kids zone…hire a few babysitters to standby and watch the kids…

    @LadyMoriarty:  I would choose option 3.  That’s what we are doing, 30 guests max.  Entire wedding under 5k.

    What if you had a room set off to the side for the kids?  I mean there has to be a bedroom or something you can put the kids, set up activities.  Then have a conversation with one of your cousins, or a teenager you know that knows your family, that could step in and help with the kids.  I’m sure the kids really don’t want to sit thru your vows either, hence why they aren’t quiet.

    Elope in some exotic location and spemd the $5000 on that and a honeymoon. You sound less thN thrilled about any of the other options anyway so have an amazing trip instead.

    I’d either elope or have it at the B&B and use some of the money saved to hire a babysitter for the brats and keep them in a separate room the entire day lol

    @LadyMoriarty:  perhaps you can personally call the moms and say something like “x, I really want you to be able to come so i am providing some trusted person y to babysit. We will have activities and they will be fed. We only ask that if you need to check on them you go to the babysitting area and do not bring them out. We really want this to be both fun for adults but convenient for parents. Obviously all this wouldn’t fit in an invitation so I thought I’d call and hear your lovely voice as an added benefit”

    Then put a short reminder in the program.

    I would think this was very thoughtful as a parent who wants to party.

    Oh and make sure the babysitter-sitters have experience with special needs children (a local college will have students looking for a buck with good training you can use in trade for money and a reference)

    I agree with @chasesgirl, take the $5000 and have a destination wedding in Jamaica or Hawaii or something. Then you’ll get an awesome trip out of it too!
