I know the kid thing has been asked to death but I feel like I am losing my mind. We are having a no-kids wedding. FI's daughter will be 18 when we get married and will be the only "kid" there. My issue is this: I have a co-worker who knows she is invited who keeps saying she is going to dress her daughter up (who will then be about 3) and make her my flower girl. The first time she mentioned this, I stated we weren't having kids at the wedding to which she then replied she wasn't coming. I told her I understood but explained the costs, etc (and she just got married last year, so she KNOWS all of this stuff). She has since mentioned it like 5 times. I've gotten to the point when I'm just ignoring it. How do I make sure she understands that I'm not joking around about the kid thing?
I also have two bridesmaids who have mentioned bringing their children even though I have said that it is an adults only wedding and reception. I think one bridesmaid got it. The other one hasn't. And my MOH has even mentioned on multiple occasions that she has found a babysitter for her daughter since we aren't allowing children.
Does anyone have any hints on other ways I can say, "no kids." Other than just that? And I know some people don't agree with that decision but I can't afford it and we are already whittling our list down from a ton of friends we want to invite.
I also apologize for how poorly this is written but I'm on my phone and once just accosted again by the co-worker so I'm frustrated.
