I'm pretty sure a kid is coming to our child-free wedding

VictorianChick :  Best man or no best man, once again, it’s perfectly acceptable etiquette to invite no kids except for immediate family. Only on the Bee have I ever seen anyone who believes that all child guests are created equally. But your issue is not only your Brother-In-Law and SIL, it’s with an pushy and presumably unreasonable friend who thinks his kids have equal standing to a nephew.

If your nephew really does have a place to stay locally, then of course they shouldn’t continue to push it. But maybe it’s not an acceptable situation, for reasons you know nothing about. Even now, I would have no problem telling the best man that your nephew is the only exception. Your call. My only point is there’s nothing rude about it.

VictorianChick :  I know. I was responding to WeddingMaven, not you (see the tag in my post). That poster said you should allow the nephew to come. I’m defending your decision.  🙂
