- Wedding: July 2013
I don’t really know how to work this out.
Fiance is originally from Australia so pretty much ALL of his friends & family being invited are from overseas. Originally we wanted a no-kids wedding but realized if we’re asking people to travel so far, we have to allow their kids to come.
I’m dreading it because there will be between 20-30 kids then.
Anyway. We truly don’t know who is going to be able to come from Australia. People always say yes, but I feel like we won’t know for sure until their flights are booked because people are flakey.
If guests from Australia and their kids are coming then obv we have to also allow the kids of my (American, local) guests. However, if they’re not coming, we want to go with the no-kids thing.
My problem is I have no idea how to word invitations when we really dont know whether kids are coming or not yet. I feel like you need to know whether its an adult only reception when you send invitations, but we won’t know if any kids HAVE to come until after they’re sent out, because thats when people RSVP.
I figured we could email all his relatives and ask if they were definitely planning on coming and bringing their kids, but like I said, their words won’t mean much until their flights are booked so who knows if that would even help.
What would you do??
