My bridal shower host asked me what she should do in this situation (probably she should've come here first to ask instead of me!), but I didn't know how to answer her question either, so maybe one of you do!
Bridal shower is in a few days and one of the guests asked if she could bring her 9 year old daughter. My host asked what she should respond with. For the shower, I'm more or less indifferent on if her child comes or not; it's just a brunch. However, our wedding is an adult-only event (among other reasons, cost and venue size alone is a big reason why). I don't mind her coming to the shower, but I don't want any confusion when it comes time for wedding invites or to hear "well she was so well-behaved at the shower, yada yada yada" because that really isn't why we cannot have kids at the wedding reception anyway.
What advice can I give to my shower host in regards of how to respond? Since the person who made this request is my relative, I'm sure this is why she asked me in the first place because she doesn't want to offend my family and then have it get back to me.
