no kids wedding

My daughter is getting married in September. Were having a no kids wedding. Our side of the family is upset because they can't bring their kids. Mainly our head count won't be able to include 15 or more kids. You think they would want to come without their kids and enjoy the wedding without them. Anyone else having the same problems?

 i didnt have this issue.  i didnt have kids either, but didnt have this issue.  it was pretty well known that my wedding was gonna be small.  i didnt invite my cousins cause if i had it would have been a HUGE wedding.  dad came from big family and my mom's mom is from a big family.  

it could just be as simple as eveyone thinking about having to find a sitter for the wedding.  i am sure that if they knew your venue didnt have enough room for any more guests they would understand.  they still may want their kids, but just realize that this is your day and as long as yal are happy who cares what other people think about not having their kids there.  in a year they wont be all upset about it. it might just be all about the babysitter.  it is crazy what some people get upset about.  i wouldnt worry about it.

Are your cousins 1st cousins? Were they upset because they weren't invited? Were only inviting some 2nd cousins because we have too many and a lot of them we don't see very often. There's only a few that's invited. There the ones that live local to us and we see them all the time. A lot of the 2nd cousins too my daughter has never met.

I think this varies. For out of town guests it seems to be a baby sitter issue. We were going to have a no kids wedding but have decided against it. You know your guests best
