    Depending on who's side it is on, you (or your FI) call them up and say "I'm sorry for the misunderstanding, although we would love to see Little Susie, our budget is very tight and are not having children." 

    You might get some snarky people who think their children must be brought to every event and try to argue with you about it, but stick to your guns and say, "We totally understand if you are unable to make it. You will be missed."

    This...exactly.  Prepare yourself for unpleasantness.....
    My baby girl is a married woman...and now my baby girl HAS a baby girl. Time unfolds in such an amazing way. I've been blessed!
