I think unless your job situation is very precarious, you should sweetly explain in an email that you’re so sorry, but you can’t accomodate children at your wedding.

Are you allowing other children to attend?  If not, simply say there will not be any children at the reception.  And even if you are having other children, simply say that the venue has a maximum capacity and you apologize for not being more clear (even though you were!) but you can’t take on any additional guests.

To quote you “suck it up and ask them to find a babysitter”.

If you can’t accommodate their kids then let them know that the kids can’t come. It’s your wedding so put your foot down. it doesn’t matter if it’s your boss, be polite and simply tell them no.

I don’t understand why people think this is ok! I can’t believe how often I see this problem.

@LMD84 I was going to say the same thing as LMD84. Its your wedding, it should be what you want so you have to put your foot down and let them know.

I’d just tell them the truth unless you think it would be a huge deal. They may be your boss – but that’s still rude.

Yeah…I think in this case, you should just tell them that you’re at your limit and you only have space for your boss and their husband/wife. They should understand! It’s very possible they were confused!
