Response: Hello Cass, Generally, family members, including nieces and nephews, are invited to a family event, particularly if the parents are traveling to the wedding. To exclude them sends a negative message that could take years to overcome.
Because you include family, that doesnt mean that your friends or your parents friends should expect to be able to bring their children.
If there could be a problem with the children misbehaving, your fiance should talk to his sister and his mother and let them know that he assumes the children will be on their best behavior. That gives his mother warning that she might need to step in if his sister doesnt control her kids. As for the cost, if the children are young, they wont eat much.
