Hello all! I’m having an “adults only” wedding and reception and am having some troubles with some of the guests that have babies. So here’s the situation: most of our family and friends are local to us, however our ceremony and reception is about and hour and a half away. Meaning most people will have at least that long of a drive to get there and return home. Combined there are 3 guests with babies 6 months or less and 2 guests with babies 12 months or less... that’s 5 babies total. I would prefer “adults only” to also exclude babies, however the 3 people with babies under 6 months are also all in the bridal party! So some of them think they should be aloud to bring their babies because of this. I understand they don’t want to leave their babies, but they also knew our wedding would be adults only for over a year and we made it clear we didn’t want any children. Our reception venue is also extremely small and our guest list is already maxed out.
If we allow the 3 people in our bridal party to bring their babies I’m afraid it may upset other with guests with small children (which combined there are 15 under the age of 3). What does everyone think?
