My fiancé and I are getting married in 2024, so still a ways off. About half of the guests that we’re going to invite are not from Canada (mostly from the UK) since that’s where my fiancé’s from.
A lot of his friends either have kids (between ages of 1-13 years old) or they will plan to have kids in the next two years. I know that for some of them, they probably can’t come to our wedding without bringing their kids. I don’t REALLY mind…BUT…a lot of my friends have kids (some of whom I’m NOT a huge fan of/I don’t really know them well since we haven’t hung out much since COVID). So my question is, would it be “rude” of me to not permit my Canadian friends to being their kids if I’m permitting international friends to bring their kids. We’re trying to keep our wedding under 75 people and with kids factored in for both Canadian and international friends, I might be looking at 20 kids at my wedding ranging from babies to 15 years old….which I hadn’t really planned on and don’t really want. I don’t want to be unreasonable, but also want to not have 20 additional kiddos that I don’t really know/aren’t close with to be there.
