Hey hive! I need your help. My Fiance and I are only inviting children of immediate family members to our wedding. We specifically sent out seperate RSVPs that had a child option for entree to those whose children we are inviting. A friend of mine, who isnt a super close friend, sent the RSVP back and included her daughter. Do I just let it go or do I say something? Their invitation was specifically addressed to she and her husband. Help!

Just call her and say “I’m sorry, but we are only inviting children of immediate family members due to budget/space/etc” (Even if you aren’t inviting everyone else’s children because you just don’t feel like it, it might be nice to blame it on budget or space)

I would definitely call her and let her know you aren’t inviting children. It’s an uncomfortably conversation to have, but it needs to be done. If you make an exception for her, you’ll have to make them for everyone…

@meganmarie33: Call her up, apologize for the “misunderstanding” and explain that the invitation was to her and her husband and that you hope they will still be able to attend.

I would politely explain to her that her invite was for her and her husband only, as well that only immediate family’s children are invited. If she gets mad/upset/whatever about it, than maybe she shouldn’t be invited. I think any mature person would understand, it is a wedding after all, not a birthday party.

Than you for all of the feedback. 🙂
