I have never seen this before, but it might be cute.

I also have never seen this, but it does sound like a good idea, especially if a lot of kids are going to be there!  I think the wording that you already used in your post sounds good enough!!  Good Luck!

Be prepared that parents are going to want to know a lot of details ahead of time about the “kids reception” – like where the kids will be, what they will be doing, who will be supervising them etc. before they agree to it.  Not sure if this information would be included somehow or maybe there would be a message like “See our wedding website for more information: http://www.blahblahblah.com“.  Also, would kids be able to move freely between the kids reception and the adult reception if they change their mind and would rather be back with mom & dad (or if they get bored at the adult reception and would like to go to the kids one?).  I strongly urge having more than one adult supervise for the “kids reception”.  It would be great if you could possibly get college students who are studying to become teachers to help out (not sure if any of your family or friends know of anyone).. that way they would be great at coming up with fun activities to keep the kids occupied, and would have experience working with kids.

Great idea!  It sounds really cute.  I know a lot of parents will really appreciate that you’re giving them options.

That does sound really cute, but also like a lot of extra planning! Kudos to whoever was so thoughtful 🙂

I went to a wedding once where the kids had their own little reception room, and it was across the hall so we(parents/family) could go check on them whenever we wanted. They had cute mini cokes and coloring books, and all sorts of things to keep them entertained. It made sense to do it rather than a kid table, cause the reception room was really dark and honestly not very kid friendly. The kids didn’t get their own invitations though, but I think it would be really cute.

cute idea!  I haven’t heard of it, but I also haven’t been to a lot of weddings. 

We’re having kids at our wedding (how can we not when we have two of our own?! lol) but it’s an outside wedding where the kids will be able to run around and play.  There’s even a volleyball net and I’m planning on getting some frisbees, volleyball and some cheapo lightsabers or foam swords for the kids to play with.  (maybe the adults, too, lol).

LOVE the idea, especially if you have a not-very-child-friendly venue. 

The wording sounds great, but as a parent, I’d want to know more details.  Including the babysitters, where the kids will be, etc etc.

I think this is a great idea!! We also are expecting A LOT of kids at our wedding and are brainstorming ways to tastefully offer a babysitting option.  I really like the kids invitation! Seems like a special tough for the young ones 🙂
