    Adults only for my wedding. For me, I decided that I didn’t want to pay for children at my reception (FI has 20 cousins under 16!), and I didn’t want children disrupting the ceremony or running wild through the reception. I guess I’ve heard too many horror stories about how kids ruined the night.

    No kids for us.  We want our guest to  enjoy the evening and not worry about entertaining their kids at our wedding.

    We are having an adult only reception. Kids are invited to the ceremony but not the reception. Kids are not free at our venue and we don’t feel its worth $45 a plate for chiken fingers and fries for kids. Also, we are having a party with drinks so not a kind friendly reception in my opinion.

    We’re planning on a Disney wedding and I have 3 kids of my own so definitely there will be kids. Out of 50 people that are on the list (not everyone will come of course) at least 15 are children.

    We’re going to Sweden so that your families could be involved in our big day. There are a lot of kids on both of sides. I’m happy to have the kids there.

    Yep, I’m having kids at my wedding. First off, kid free would really not fly in my family. Many people would think it was a rude thing for me to do. Secondly, I have a 2 year old, so I felt it’d be really out of line asking others not to bring kids when I have a kid myself. I prefer not to bring my son to weddings, because I like the chance to have adult time, but I understand why others get offended by kid free weddings.

    Our wedding is on New Years Eve and does not start until 530 pm so we did not feel like it was appropiate. Also, it would entail an additional 70 people to be invited (yes 70!)

    We decided to let the parents decide what evening they would like to have: family or night out for the parents.  We invited about 25 kids out of 200+ total guest.   Most parents have opted for a night out without the kids, so not many are coming.

    We are having only the Flower girl and 2 program attendants because those are the 3 kids we HAD to invite.  Other than that, no kids!!!  My wedding is not a circus.  I don’t want children running around.

    Neither poll option works for me.  My nieces and nephews are invited, and we included a note for out of towners with very young kids that if it was easier to come with them, they are welcome, but weren’t specifically invited.  Other than that, no kids.

    To *me* it’s not a wedding without the whole family there and my family includes kids.  I love kids and was happy to have them at my wedding.  🙂  We ended up with about 7 kids – all under the age of 10!
