We’re kind of doing the same thing.  Though for us, 95% of guests (and all children) will be out of towners, and there’s only 3 kids currently born, 1 in utero, and another couple ones that might spring into existence.

The other thing we’re doing is telling people what will be going down… we intend to have a pretty raucous party going into the late hours.  And, um… my FI and I are not exactly the type of people parents like to have their kids around.  They KNOW this will be big trouble for any child old enough to understand what’s going on.

Although looking over your other post, it does look like you’re thinking of having a babysitter pick up kids from the reception which I think is really courteous of your guests.  How many children are involved in all this?

I do think the distinctions you’re making are pretty clear-cut ones and people should be able to understand them.  Frankly, if I had a kid I would be so psyched to leave it at home if my friends’ wedding was in town.  This might be part of why I don’t want kids, though…

That is funny stuff. We are having kinda the same issue. The only kids invited to our wedding and reception are a)immediate familys kids (nieces / nephews) AND b) kids of our wedding party. We haven’t decided exactly how we will word it in our invite, but i think it is important that guests know they WILL see a few  children. Something like “although we would love to share our wedding day with all of your children, we have limited our guest list to our immediate family and wedding party…thank you for your understanding” . . . I actually don’t think that anyone is going to care…but who knows 🙂

Strange how the kids thing seems to cause so much trouble with inviations etc. My best friend is getting married in month and they are just having kid’s room for anyone who decides to bring their children. They have a babysitter for the day.
