Kids or no kids at the wedding
Who isnt allowing kids at their wedding? We will be having our two boys (3 & 10 months) but only for the ceremony and then they are leaving with my parents. As for our other guests, some are bringing their older (highschool) aged kids. I think we have 6 all together. I didnt even think of this until after I sent out the invites and had people ask me if they were allowed to come. Personally, for me its an adult party. I dont want kids running around making a mess of my hard work. Or kids crying in the background..

No kids here.. not even teenagers. I just felt I didn't have anything to offer the little ones and I really wanted the parents to enjoy themselves.. I did call all the parents ahead of time to see how they would feel about it and luckily, everyone's excited to have a night off from parenting!

We have an age limit of 10-12 being able to come. Any kid younger, cannot come. It is our one day to celebrate us with everyone and I do not want little kids ruining that. Some of the kids on his side I know for sure lack discipline and I WILL NOT deal with it on our wedding day. Any other time, I will, but not that day.

I completely agree. I dont want to end up babysitting. Those who are bringing their kids wont be staying long either. Which is fine with me. I wanted my boys in the ceremony but my dad will be taking them home with him as soon as dinner is done.

We had our wedding in a pub, so legally all guests had to be 21 and over. We also told parents well in advance, so they didn't assume kids were invited and then get all huffy and disappointed with us. We also included this info on our website:

Please note that (venue) is licensed as a tavern. As such, all guests must be 21 or over and should bring ID. While children are a joy and a blessing, we will unfortunately be unable to accommodate them at the reception. If you are coming from out of town, please contact Shannon for babysitting recommendations.

I have three little girls in the wedding, ages 3, 4 and almost 6. As far as guests, my aunt has an almost 2 year old and her daughter is in the wedding. My mom's best friend has a 7 year old that will be there along with his 5 year old sister. I also have a 9 year old and a teenager. There will be plenty of children there to ruin my day.

Only kids I will allow are our nieces and nephews. All others get to stay home lol (He has a HUGE family so letting kids in = like 20 cousins with 4-6 kiddos each = HUGE BILL)

Only kids there will be ours and a handful of teenage cousins. Heard my FMIL verbally invited kids of cousins, but FH is about to nip that in the bud. There's just no room. I'm getting irritated already with the promised invites mine and his parents keep giving. No no no no!!!!!!

We are kid friendly as there will be kids - most however will be teenagers. Only ones I know of is the GM who has little kids (2 -8 now) and will be able to bring them or have a nite out. Our granddaughter will be almost 3 and will be the flower girl. As an older couple - our friends just have older kids so we are lucky in that regards.

We are having a Adults only reception and the only children allowed at the ceremony are the ones in the wedding party. After the ceremony all the children are being sent to a hotel near by with a trusted babysitter and some pizza. We want to have a blast with our guest and in my opinion its hard to let loose when you have to keep an eye on your young ones. We are allowing young adults 17 because we know they can handle themselves. Our party is only running til around 11:00pm, so its not like the parents are going to be out super late.

We allowed kids, 22 under the age of 11 were invited so far most parents are leaving them home. We have one 11 year old girl, 4 teenage girls, and 4 babies under 2 years coming right now. We had neat ideas if a lot of kids came but now the ages are such that either they are sel sufficient or the parents need to take care of them.

Their will be kids at our weddings but kids our part of all our family parties it's how we like to celebrate; but some of my cousins have asked if they can leave there kids at home and I said yes of course. I left it up to the parents if they want to enjoy the night off or dancing with their kids. This how I grew up and how me and FH want our kids and cousins to grow up. Plus food wasn't expensive for them.
