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.

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 =)

they will find a sitter. 🙂 have an adult only ceremony and reception – you dont want kids melting down in your wedding because its past their bedtime….
