  • It is your event, your rules. Don't let anyone disrespect your wishes and needs. Its your money, your event, your time, your space. You could even hire a family friend or someone to watch the door and politely only let adults who follow the rules in, or people on a ''guest list''. Also, remind them its an 'adult only affair, please respect our wishes' on the invites and reminders.I know how you feel.

  • Tell them NO. You put it on the invitation, so they are well aware. It's not about them, it's about your daughter && if she doesn't want kids at her wedding, then people should respect that.

  • Ask them what part of ADULT ONLY don't they understand? Ok, that is how I'd say it but you might just stand firm and say NO Children or maybe they can come to the wedding but not stay for the reception. That way it's still a shared event and they can leave after the ceremony

  • You just be blunt, that it's a wedding for adults only, no children. And that you'd understand if they can't make it.

  • Just say you are sorry, but its your daughters happiest day of her life, and due to finances and other issues, you can only have adults.

  • tell them how sorry you are that they wont be attending. if they keep on, be blunt and say no kids thats our final answer.
