I hope everyone's planning has been great. So here is my problem/issue. My fiance has a brother who has five children. The younger one is one of our flower girls. He is also my fiance's groomsman. (one of four). We are paying almost all of our wedding costs ourselves but grooms family has decided they can afford to throw the rehearsal dinner. Wonderful right? well the brother with children is known for taking advantage of anything free and the parents are quite aware of this and have stated they do not want children at the dinner after the rehearsal. How in the world would you word this on your invite without being quite rude? They are not at all etiquette friendly so jusy writing adult names on the invite would mean squat to them. I don't want to step on toes but the children in reference are quite naughty and will no doubt be misbehaving and taking the attention off of the people it should be on. I'm by no means an attention whore but it is a bit about us ya know? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! The wedding is in November so I know I jhave time but I would like to chack it off the never ending list.
