I’m in a somewhat similar situtation in that I’m the first of my cousins (14 total including me and my sibs, cousins are 3 months-20 years old)  to get married. They’re all younger than me. We’re inviting all of them because I look forward to seeing them even though they’re young. I would be upset if my sibling or cousin was invited to a wedding and I wasn’t because of my age. I wouldn’t be upset if none of the cousins were invited. If you don’t invite them, many of their parents (your aunts and uncles) might not come because they want to stay with their kids.

There are kid-friendly caterers out there, and I would look into booking one. Our caterer offers free meals for kids under 5, and half price for kids under 12. If you want your cousins there, I would seek out a caterer who is willing to give you discount prices, which should help somewhat with the cost of so many children.

My Family close knit also but while I’m sure some people will grumble about in our family about half the weddings are adults only. I kind of glad other cousins have paved the way for me.
