Help! How can we scare away the kids?
I need your help if you have the time. My future husband and I are not interested in having kids at the wedding, but there are over 30 kids from 0-18 in or combined families. The thing that makes this tricky is that my entire family lives on the other side of the country and every aunt or uncle has at least one under 4 year old that can't be left at home. I know that we can't afford the nanny fees for 32 kids, but, I would hate to ask my entire family to fly to our wedding and then figure out something to do with their kids.
Is there some alternative solution that I can offer to our invitees in order to encourage grown-up guests but discourage the under 18 crowd?
--Kids are expensive
Let me get this straight.
You don't want kids at your wedding, but you "would hate to ask" your aunts and uncles not to bring their kids?
Why don't you tell them you're doing an S&M themed reception? Then maybe they'll choose to leave the kids at home.
