No matter what you do, some people are going to be upset about it. So as long as you are being fair and not playing favourites, then let the chips fall where they may.

That said, in your position, I would be very inclined to spring for a slightly larger tent and squeeze the budget elsewhere in order to invite all the kids. But then I think kids at weddings are fun. Many people vehemently disagree with that. 🙂

The easy out is to only invite children that are in the wedding. Beyond that it gets tricky. I looked at it as  inviting family units, not specific levels of relation.

@kittykat04:  sounds tricky to me. if you are inviting some kids but not others there are bound to be hurt feelings, esp if his family is that close as you say.

We aren’t inviting children to our wedding, but Future Brother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law & their 2 daughters are coming in from Switzerland for our wedding so the girls will be coming (solely for the fact they’re coming from switzerland to PA just for our wedding!) as well as our 18month old daughter, but that’s it.
