    @rmrsln2010:  I have a couple of things:

    -if you invite them you should probably invite all the kids who are not involved in the wedding party as well. I would be a bit upset if my kids weren’t invited and then I noticed that kids who weren’t in the wedding party were there.

    -if someone asks why kids aren’t invited please do not tell them it’s because you want them “to enjoy the wedding.” I find it strange when people use this as a reason to not invite kids. If someone wants to enjoy a night out without kids they will get a babysitter so don’t pretend you are doing them a favor. That being said I’m totally in favor of a kid free wedding, I just don’t think that should be given as a reason.

    If you invite them, you open up yourself to a heap of other “requests” for other kids to be invited.  Don’t do it.

    The second you make an exception for one, you have to invite them all!
