Anyone else dealing with a little pettiness from family members for having an adults only event? My first cousins, some uncles and aunts, didn’t even bother declining the rsvp, or even giving me courtesy call/text letting me know they are not attending. I heard it from other family members that they are not showing up because they all “have kids”. And also, one of my uncles is not going because I have “too many requirements”. My literal one and only requirement is don’t bring your kids lol. Mind you, all his children are adults and he has nothing to worry about. 🤷🏻‍♀️ People just like talking crap. I’m the first in our family that has an adults only wedding. Having a massive amount of children at your wedding is a cultural norm (Mexican)that I decided to ditch! Not thanks! By the way, my cousins are all going on a adults only weekend getaway the following weekend, but they made comments that they don’t go anywhere without their kids. How does that make sense? Honestly, I don’t care that they are not coming to the wedding, it’s the lack of common courtesy to let me know for me. Lol

    I’m having an adult only wedding as well. I haven’t gotten much flack at all. My cousin did try to add her children to her invite but we had to tell her again no kids! I removed them. I really didn’t want my cousins there anyway so if they choose not to come for that reason I would be just fine. Lol

    Yes, his side of the family took it really personal! Hello- executive orders - we have a limit and I’m not wasting numbers on multiple children under 6.
    It was super annoying and petty of them, they did not show up. Thank gosh.
    Best wishes 💕

    No indeed. The only person who gives any indication that they're interested in the wedding is my grandma.

    We will be having an adults-only affair as well and since we're the only ones paying for the wedding, any complaints or objections will be falling on deaf ears. We have sons & Godsons who will be attending because they're in the wedding but their grandmothers will be taking them from the reception so we can truly have a good time.

    Its funny how so many people feel entitled to something they're not paying for and have advance notice about. Its YOUR day and they will deal.
