Who will receive an invite to the most important day of your life? Setting the guest list (and navigating the feelings of friends and family) can be tough—but we have the answers to your trickiest questions.

My fiancé and I decided not to invite kids to the wedding. His mother wants us to bend the rule for one couple. I don't think that's fair. What should I do?

You're right to feel that making exceptions and playing favorites, especially with family, is inviting disaster. You and your fiancé need to agree to stick to your rule, and he should be the one to explain your joint decision to his mother.
