i like the rule of “family only kids” (that’s what we’re doing too), but as far as that one exception, i say go for it! you can then have your “rule” be – only family kids and those in the wedding party? lol

@HannahGrace:  if they’re in the wedding party, they’re an exception to the rule.

@HannahGrace:  It is not faux pas!  If they are in the wedding, then your guests will understand.  They should also respect your decision to have no children.  Not say they will, this is probably another area you’ll have to address as you get RSVPs back (read past threads on this one).  It is your wedding and you have it how you like.  Ours is kid-free also and I am looking forward to it.  🙂

My mom’s good friend got married when I was about 5.  Myself and the ring bearer were the only 2 kids there- he was a nephew.  And from weddings I have been to- that seems to be pretty common.  Wedding party or family kids allowed and sorry about the rest.

I think you would be fine to say “only kids who are in the wedding party” are invited. Makes total sense.

We had a small wedding (35 on the list, including us). The only kids invited were immediate family (or son and nephew). Lots of other guests had kids, many of whom we are close to, and they all completely understood our “immediate family only” policy. I think you would have a similar experience.
