If you are old enough to have granchildren, I’m betting that you have had experience saying “NO”.

It seems you have already changed your original definition of “Adult wedding” by telling OOT’s that they can bring their kids. Unless you want to continue moving the line and adding to the guestlist, you need to be prepared with an answer for these people.

“I am sorry, we are at capacity (leave it unstated as to what capacity- the venue, the budget, your personal interest in having this person at your wedding- otherwise they will come up with solutions- like offering to pay) and it is not possible to add more guests.”

I would set an age limit.  You say you are allowing pre-teens so maybe just say “Sorry, it’s kids 10 and up” or something.  Be firm.
