My fiance and I have talked about having an adults only wedding (with the exception of the children in the wedding party-that have sitters on hand to watch after them after the ceremony). So, I happened to mention the adults only idea to a few people and apparently everyone is throwing a fit that they cant bring their little bundle of joy.
I thought that out of respect for the couple you would spend a couple of bucks for a sitter and enjoy yourself at my wedding? Apparently not. We have one couple with 4 KIDS under the age of 7! It seems like Everyone wants to bring their kids! Dont get me wrong, I LOVE KIDS....but I think there are times when kids should stay at home, and I would like for my wedding to be one of those times.
I spoke with my fiance about it and he agreed. So, I had talked to my mom and she said a lot of our close family from out of town wont be able to come if we dont allow kids because they will have no other choice. It's going to piss off a lot of people. It was suggested that instead of putting "Adults Only" on the invite we put "Adults Only Preferred". When I mentioned this to my fiance he freaked. He said it would be rude to put anything like that on an invitation. He said his family is going to have a cow!
I feel very very frustrated and annoyed. Every decision I make has to be based on what is going to piss off this person or offend that person.....We are paying for this wedding ourselves....shouldnt we do what we want? Is this not OUR day? Or am I completely out of line?
Wish we would have ran off to Vegas, saved our money & my sanity.
