Fiance and I decided to have no kids at our reception. It has created quite the problem with his family because one of his brothers has kids. They are both under 3 and I don't think attention should be on them on OUR day. They are allowed to come to the church for the ceremony and family pictures, but I think the party at night should be adults only.
The one problem is we are the only ones in the area, all our guests are traveling from Michigan, Illinois, and New Jersey. I don't expect them to bring sitters along so we are supplying one for the reception. We aren't even allowing our flower girl at the reception!
His family is really mad about this and his mom threatened to not come to the reception and stay back at the hotel with her grandkids. I don't know what they don't get about it. My parents are paying for the wedding and I don't think the reception is a place for kids.
Does anyone else have advice or in the same boat? There are a lot of other guests in the same situation and not having a cow about it. Do we have a valid argument or are we being crazy?
Our wedding is still 8 months away and the fighting has already started! HELP!!!
