Vent: I dont really know what to do in this situation.
So these past couple of days have been extremely stressful, and I really dont know what to do. My father is paying for the wedding and is having an open bar, so we decided on a child free reception. Our site is in the middle of down town and is extremely busy, along with that we have in guests that get extremely stupid when drunk. The children are invited to the ceremony and then we are hiring a babysitter to watch them at our house. One of these children is my Fi baby brother who is seven, we love him but we know he gets extremely bored. When his brother's wedding happened last year he just did laps of the place and cried so he had to be held in between his brother and mother during their dance together .
Well anyway my FI mom found out it was children free reception and flipped. She called us telling us we were Fing stupid and that she wont be coming. She then hung up and called all of my Fi family and told them that we said their children would ruin our wedding. Now the entire family is mad.... What do we do.
My Fi and I decided that we will just cave and allow immediate children but if that's the case my dad wants it to be a dry reception and I know that will be a damper on a few quest that just want to have fun.
I really love children, don't get me wrong but I thought everyone would have a better time not having to worry about taking care of their kids and get a night off.
