African American Weddings

UMMMM How can i put this nicely....

No honey your kids are not invited although there will be kids there, im not trying to feed a bunch of kids that wont eat the food and will make this into a kids party.. My thing is this, my son will be there of course along with the two flower girls. But FI's cousin have a little boy along with my FBIL babymomma sister daughter (they all grew up together so i can not invite his girl and not her sister and their family).. Then another Aunt and Uncle has a little girl and i knw they can come without her shes a only child SMDH and then one of my BM's is like o are children invited im like yea and no really only the kids in the wedding party shes like o because my daughter loves weddings (mind you shes 3 going on 35) Lord help me now Im really not interested in having a bunch of children at my wedding.... I dont knw how to put that nicely

    I think that is a tough one with the BM.. because she is in the wedding but if I read correctly that is only 5 kids and that in my opinion not enough for a guest to complain about kids.. plus like you told me TO heck with them .. NO PAY NO SAY.. so have your five kids and tell everyone else.. so sorry... but the BM i dont know... will she be able to fufill her role as BM if her little diva is there?

  • LeciaB Im sure the BM will be able to do her job i just didnt like the fact that she was like o she loves weddings (ummm she just got on this earth yesterday she will still live a fulfilling life even if she never sees mine smh) but idk we shall c about that and dont get me wrong TIRA LOVES THE KIDS  but umm this is about us not the kids and i want to be able to dance and njoy without a bunch of kids running around bad enough im gonna have to run after my own busy body 3 yr old lol

  • Girl..too funny. I just simply would say. I would love if they could come but unfortunately we just can't accommodate children. If you can't find a babysitter and can't come then ill understand and leave it at that. Dont let them break you down Tira lol
    tirathemrsLeciaB
  • Hey Tira.  The ole dreaded children fiasco, huh?!  I would state very nicely that you and your fiance have decided that the children in the wedding party, your kids, and the children of those in the wedding party will be the only ones allowed/in attendance.  Or, you can simply state that your reception is an Adult only affair.  Guests do not need to know which children you are allowing or you are not allowing or whether they are in the wedding party or not!  That is honestly irrelevant.  

    If you haven't done your invites already, then, Adults Only Reception needs to be stated on your invites.  Or you can put Adults Only Wedding & Reception.  

    For your BM, I think you should ask her if she can make other arrangements with a family member, baby sitter, etc.  If not, then I guess you will be seeing that 3 year old going on 35 at the wedding!

  • On my invite it states, " Adult Reception Only". The only kids that are allowed are immediate family only & those in the wedding party. Which will only be 5 kids all under the age of 6 and they eat for free. I was so glad when i heard that.

  • I agree with the ladies. My future step son is 10 and he still isn't coming to the reception. No kids means no kids. I personally don't have any biologically, so it wasn't a hard thing to say. Stick to your guns..extra kids will turn you off!
    tirathemrs
  • She loves weddings?? Girly bye!! I think you need to be very matter-of fact and let them know that this is an adults only wedding and the only children that will be there are the ones that are actual participants in the wedding. Also, make sure you include it on the invitation as well. You can say something like "Adult reception to follow" this way, no one is "surprised when they get there and find that their is neither a seat nor plate for their child.

    You know who confuses a wedding with a family reunion or a Thanksgiving Dinner? People who aren't paying for it. Even though my FI's brother has too many kids to count, my FI has already told him that he has a year to find a babysitter. We don't even have a flower girl or ring bearer; it's strictly an adult affair. I am not afraid to have a cousin serve as a bouncer at the door checking names off a list.  Ain't nobody got time for dat!
    LOL...I KNOW RIGHT!!! I know everybody wants to share in this wonderful union of families joining together but uhhh u gotta find something else for your child to do honey!!!
