To keep peace in the family, I would only address the invitations to the adults who are invited. What is your cut-off for the age of infants? I think if someone has a specific concern about bringing their infant, they will ask you. Or you could call up those who you will allow the infant to come and let them know that a couple days after you send the invitations.

What are the ages of all the kids in the families? Personally I might be upset if I had a two year old who wasn’t allowed to come, but then I saw a 6 or 9 month old at the wedding.

When you say you’re not inviting their “family”, are you including their partners as well? So cousin Sally is invited but her husband Bob and their 3 children are staying home? Or do you just mean children?

I think it’s ok to have an age cut off although it really only works for babies. We made ours 12 months bc those babies are still breastfeeding and parents are less likely to feel comfortable leaving them with a babysitter. No one minded, there’s a big difference between a 6 month old and a toddler running around. But if you are going to let 2 year olds come and not 3 year olds that makes less sense and parents might be more confused.
