Hey people - I am writing some FAQs and I need help wording the “No Kids under 12 due to the covid vaccine not being available for them and we would rather not have them at the wedding” etc…


I need help wording that… politely 😅

    “The COVID-19 vaccination is currently not available for children under 12 and we want to protect everyone’s health so we ask that they remain safely at home with pre-arranged childcare.”


    The vaccine mandate needs to apply to your adult guests as well

    Your wedding is a year away, what if vaccines are available by then for under 12? Or do you just not want children under 12 at your wedding period?

    Yes, my wedding is a year away. But I would like to already share my website with family and friends that will potentially be at the wedding, and if the situation with covid change by my wedding date, I would definitely re-consider. But I don’t want newborn babies at my wedding anyways. So I am trying to dodge some stuff around to see what sounds better for us.

    If you don’t want kids in attendance, be upfront about it and don’t hide behind the Covid “excuse”.

    We wrote "This is an adults only celebration," but you could say "please, no one under the age of 12," or "This is a celebration for those 14 and up."

    Yeah don't use the covid excuse with your wedding being so far away. Your guests will probably ask about it. I'm a parent and we know that the vaccine will be available for children pretty soon, most likely before the year is over.

    I agree with others, if you do not want children in attendance regardless of whether the vaccine is available or not, just be upfront about it. It will save you a lot of headache in the future when the vaccines are available and you have parents assuming their children can attend. We are only inviting guests 21+ to our wedding, and stated it very simply on the details card that accompany our invitations, as well as our website. No one has had any issue with it.

    I agree with many people on the post about not using the covid line. & if you choose to then you need to also add that adult guests who are not fully vaccinated should stay at home as well. With all of that being said,


    Our wedding will be an adult only occasion. We politely ask that children under the age of 12 not attend. (I would add something to really connect with your guests here. You know them best so something that would resonate with them and make them feel comfortable about leaving their kiddos at home)
    Something we’ve done is make goody bags for the children and I think this would be a nice touch for the guests who left kiddos at home to be able to take home to their kiddos so they feel like even though they weren’t there they can be involved too. (A lot of parents will feel less bitter about the situation if they see you’re still willing to Include/acknowledge their children)
