You have a limited list guest due to size and what you want. You have the right to have it your way it is your day. I too am not having any children at my wedding it is my preference because it is going to be an evening wedding and I dont want to be bothered with them running around and bumping into guest. My youngest is 19 and I want an adult wedding.

Just explain to your father how strongly you feel about it and hopefully he will respect your wishes. Good luck…

I think a lot of people are doing this these days. Im sure everyone will understand. If the weddings in your family are normally kid friendly I would make sure to add at the bottom of the invitation that an “adult only” reception will follow the ceremony.

I honestly think it’s fine.  If they really put up a fight, you could offer a sitter.  Depending upon where your reception is, you could hire a babysitter (or two) and have the kids all hang out in a different room, eat pizza play games/watch movies.

We had adults only. The parents loved a night out with just adults.
