Is it weird/overly-complicated if on my reply card, I break it down to number of adults attending and number of children attending? (Furthermore, number of children under 12 and 12-20?) Children under 12 are half off at our reception hall and then age 12-20 are ten bucks less. A lot of the people were are inviting are friends of my fiance’s parents. I have no idea how old the kids are, and neither do the parents! I just want a good count of how many kids are coming, but I’m not sure if this is tacky or not. Thoughts? Thanks!

how many children are you expecting? i would probably just do the breakdown by phone — have your moms call each guest with kids and figure it out.

Our guests have to indicate their meal options on our RSVP. We used the “we have reserved ___ seat(s) for you”. We only wrote in the number of adults on the card. Then, we emailed/called, etc the guests with kids to say that they are free to bring their children, but they don’t need to designate a meal choice, just write in their name and they get the kids meal. So far, it’s been going well. However, we only have a total of 10 kids coming to the wedding.
I don’t know what the your guest list may include, but this may the easiest way – just chat with the parents about the number (and age) of their kids.
