I feel your pain! I really wanted an “adult only” wedding. I ended up hurting people’s feelings somehow by not inviting their kids. I explained the wedding was at a bar at night etc. eventually I gave in bc hubbys suster was insulted She couldn’t bring crying newborn. It’s your day! Your decision

It boggles me when adults need to be attached to their children at every event, party, and obligation. Why not have the night off?? SO weird!

thessely:  I agree!  FI and I would have loved to have made our wedding adults-only, but for his family everyone comes to weddings, including all the kids.  His brother had a very kid-friendly wedding with games and stuff, which I’ve told Fiance he needs to tell his family that we won’t be doing that…we’ve compromised on kids coming for close family but it is still an adults’ event.  Thankfully nobody on my side cares, they all want a night off from their kids!

Sorry this is happenign to you, bee.  People are so weird about their kids

I’m not sure if anyone has suggested this, but what about arranging for a babysitter? you can look at care.com or sittersitty.com and find a two or three sitters willing to hang out with all the kids while you get married. You can negotiate a fair hourly rate per child and inform the parents of this service being offered for their kids. You can provde toys and games and movies for the kids to ensure they are entertained.
