I think you could have accepted the verbal RSVP, but I think you were totally in line when it came to the grandchildren. Its your wedding and she should respect that, good for you for standing up for yourself and what you want.

Gurl, I understand. I understand. I understand. Sometimes family just takes your there.
Just call your Aunt up and tell her that your sorry if you were a little too firm for her taste. Let her know that you can’t wait to see her but her grandchildren will have to stay w/ a sitter.

You’re perfectly within your right as the bride to say you don’t want children at your wedding. It’s absurd to me when people receive an invitation that says adults only and then call to ask to bring their kids. (Aside: I had a groomsman ask for us to put his not even 2-year-old daughter that we’ve met 4 times in our wedding in order to justify her attending.)
That being said, you definitely got a little caught up in the moment with your aunt. Totally understandable though. There comes a point in the wedding planning process when you watch Bridezillas and don’t understand why everyone thinks their behavior is so appalling. 😉
