@meeegz2587:  you have to be completely honest but firm and let them know that your wedding can not  accommodate children!

“Sorry, we’re having an ‘adults only’ affair. I hope you are still able to join us, but please let me know ASAP.”

@meeegz2587:  Coming from someone who is straight forward, I would respond with, “I’m sorry, but it is an adults-only wedding.” If / when they ask why, I would say that you and your fiancé don’t feel that the environment will be right for children and so have decided to invite adults only.

 

Edit: Heh, yeah. Exactly what the others said. Sometimes I take too long when typing and my answers become repeats!

How old is their son? and it can definitely be different in the evening/night. I would give the same responses as the others…but if it’s a baby (eg. nursing infant) I can understand them asking. Maybe their baby sitter fell through and they’re just checking

@meeegz2587:  I would say, ” sorry we aren’t able to accomodate any Children, I hope you will still be able to join us I really would love to have you there but if you can’t make it I completely understand”

– That way she knows your serious and knows her options are come without kids or don’t come.

@mrs.stormylove:  

 

This is perfect.  We did an adults only wedding and it worked.  Nobody even asked, but then, ours was a very small, one notch from elopement affair.

 

I really like Mrs.stormylove’s response– it’s firm, but polite at the same time.
