I'm recently engaged, and my FI's family has a lot of kids. Their own, grandchildren, adopted, and foster kids with "problems." I really can't stand kids. It doesn't matter why, it doesn't matter if I want kids of my own someday, it just matters that I'm having a VERY small, intimate wedding, and I do not want kids there. We want to have our wedding on a small island, where they do not have things like an extra house for kids to run around in. How do I ask them not to bring their kids for this one night??
My dislike of kids is strong enough that if I can't arrange this as I would like, I will simply have a wedding with just our parents, my FI, and myself.
Like other said here, you don;t have to be scared to post your concern on your wedding day. But at least you did post.
You can talk to your FI if you don't like kids to attend on your wedding day and expect his reactions. Although it can really offend people especially your FIs side, don't be scared to open you problems. After all it's your big day and your happiness matters a lot.
