We are planning to have our wedding under the stars, and as it doesn’t get dark in March until maybe 8 or so, the wedding would begin around sunset and go into the night. Would it be rude to tell guests not to bring their young children, who ought to be in bed before it is over? We both have cousins who are ages 1-7.

No its not rude I feel a night wedding is more of an adult type wedding and who really wants to leave because of a cranky kid who is tired.

We had an adult only affair. Our wedding was at 6:30 so not as late as yours but still too late for kids.

I’m mainly worried about detering people from coming because they can’t bring their kids. Especially since my aunts and uncles mainly rely on my grandparents as babysitters.

If those people really want to go they will find sitters.

I had this same concern when I wanted an evening “affair” My mom suggested wording the invitation in an appealing way that they rather come and enjoy the function themselves… “join us for a lavish, night under the stars…” you get the idea.
Now, we’re having a morning wedding, but I still didn’t want children part of the ceremony so we’re providing childcare for that part. It was the compromise btwn my fi and I b/c he has a large family, youngsters included, and didn’t want to have to worry about family not being able to make it.
Hope this helps some =)
