Call her up, or go next door, and say that unforunately, because of space, etc., you are having a child-free wedding.

Sigh, this is an unfortunate thing that most brides eventually face in some form–the added RSVP.  You have to just bite the bullet, call her and tell her. Try “hi so-and-so, I’m sooo glad that you and husband are able to make the wedding, but I think you may have misunderstood–unfortunately we can only extend the invitation to adults so it won’t be possible for little-kid to attend. I’m really sorry if this is an inconvenience, and if it means you and husband cannot attend we understand and you’ll be missed”

If she fights it just stick to your guns and say “I’m sorry, it is not possible”

Please think of this as a blip and not a disaster, because it will almost certainly happen multiple times. You have to just say “Oh, dear! We’re not going to be able to have any kids there. We do hope you’ll still be able to make it!”

Fiance and I are having to do this, with some frequency, and it sucks.

Holy overreaction batman! Just kidding. But this definitely is not a disaster. All it takes is a quick phone call or visit and just let them know that the invitation was just for the two of them.

We had a no kids reception and had to make a few of these phone calls. Everyone understood just fine.
