Not sure about #1, but with situation #2 I would just tell the best man and his FI that if they travel with their children you would be more than happy to help them find a sitter for the wedding. That way you are politely reminding them of the no children wedding.

#1  I would wait until closer to the wedding before doing/saying anything to anyone. They wouldn’t be the first couple to get back together even with major problems and it would be very awkward if they are back to being a couple and you have asked him not to come.

#2 Ditto with the pp. i would approach them with an offer to line up a sitter in case they are able to bring the children. Where are they staying of they do come? Many hotels have professional childcare available by prior arrangement.

@shootznladrz89:  Not sure how your venue works, but maybe talk to the coordinator the day before, and let him know that you might have a party crasher who will need to be told to leave.  I had told my coordinator that I was concerned of a particular relative of mine showing up, and he told me to just point her out so he could ask her to leave.


As for the 2nd issue, I have been to weddings where the “NO CHILDREN” reminder was everywhere, including on the invitation.  People still brought their kids.  I would suggest what the other bees said and offer to help find a sitter.  Not sure how well that will go over, seeing as she doesn’t even trust anyone from where she lives, but it is worth a shot.  Plus, you can casually mention to the best man how the seating arrangements are so hard because you have a limit to the number of tables, and every table is pretty much full and trying to rearrange other people who are there in odd numbers(like aunts/uncles with cousins from each side), even if that isn’t the situation.  Maybe if you imply that there will be no physical room for the kids at the tables, that will deter her.
