You said it yourself in your next to last sentence…..”if I make ONE exception…..”

I also think it’s tacky for someone to ask if they can bring someone else as a replacement.

All around a touch situation. We have a strict rule – no kids under 16, no exceptions, well except for the Flower Girl and Ring Bearer and they’re leaving as soon as they’re introduced cause by then it’s going to be really late.

Again, a though situation. Good luck

Hiya – how rude of them!

I would just say that your venue dosen’t allow children, and that they are making an exception for your close family.  Explain that you are happy for them to bring a replacement date or friend, but that you have an agreement with your venue on the number of kids attending – good luck x

I was once that 17 year old who didn’t get invited to a no kids wedding. Despite the fact that my 19 year old cousin was also not invited and the rule was drawn based on a generation, not ages I was still upset. Instead I got babysitting duty haha. I feel like 17 year olds don’t consider themselves children so it’s hard to say no kids are invited. I feel like a one for one swap of a teen child and his/her mother is acceptable as long as it does not cause the flood gates to open. Look at it this way, at least they are asking. They very well could just show up mother and daughter and claim dad couldn’t make it at the last minute so she’s his substitute.
