I think you need to be proactive in this. Don’t wait for her to find out from someone else. Either call or email and just explain that you know you said x, y and z when you talked to her before all your final decisions had been made, apologize for giving her information before you were ready and say that you’ve now decided on x. Don’t allow any wiggle room and don’t apologize for not allowing kids anymore. Good luck!

I agree with @Jenniferk6: ! I also think the change should be totally understandable because of the circumstances…. good luck!

Does anything prevent you from inviting the whole families but just getting a couple babysitters and pizzas for the kids during the event?  Usually hotels have babysitting agencies they work with, and that way, people can still travel with their kids but enjoy the wedding sans ankle biters!  Just a thought…

I’d just tell her the truth. You’d love to have kids there, but you’ve got a maximum of 15 guests each. And if it’s a Destination Wedding, you may not fill that–people may not be able to afford it, or get the time off work, so you may be able to include the children if enough people RSVP no?

I would play up the importance of the venue to the two of you. I also agree that you shouldn’t act coy about the fact you know you are contradicting what you said before. When that is finished you have done all that you can.

Have your fiance help you with them though. You made this decision together, which I think is very nice since often the ladies do all the planning. Hopefully you can stand up for your choices together.
