- Wedding: September 2012
I had always envisioned a wedding without kids in attendance- so imagine my surprise when I found my Fiance’s Mom’s guest list included children.
I asked about it in the most non-confrontational way possible and she said that if those kids aren’t invited, the parents will not be able to go. My fiance’s family is all from NY and our wedding is in Delaware, so they’d have to travel and stay overnight in order to attend- so they’d have to take their kids.
I understand, and that’s not a problem. BUT now the question is what we should do in regards to children of guests from my area. If I were to include all of these children, I’d have an additional 12 (at least). I’m not down with this idea. Besides, a bulk of these kids are my cousin’s children- and taking a cue from other weddings in the family- these kids were never invited.
Does anyone have a good suggestion on how to handle this? I’m adding a poll. Thanks!
ETA: No matter what, there will be an 11 month old in attendance. My fiance’s sister in law is due next month!!! yayy! And we’re inviting her parents, so there will be no one to watch the baby. Don’t know if that affects anyones opinion
