We picked an age limit that made sense for our guest list. Our “age” was 12 and up. But that had to do with the ages of kids who would/wouldn’t be invited moreso than fussy-ness. 🙂

When do kids stop being fussy? lol Never They are fussy through adulthood and old age. Add alcohol to the situation adults get wicked fussy! 😉

If you don’t want kids there make the cut off 13 or so.

I think it makes more sense to determine the cut-off based on the kids you’ll be inviting and their ages.

For example, it may not make sense to set the age limit at 13 if there’s 10 kids older then that but only 1 kid younger.  It could seem pretty rude to invite all the kids except one.

Is there a natural gap in ages of the kids?

Being fussy and needy is the result of parents who refuse to discipline their children. Do not lump all children together because a bad apple in the bunch is spoiled (pun intended). In fact, some kids are better behaved than adults, so age is irrelevant where maturity is concerned.

If you want no kids, then don’t invite anyone under 18, since that is the cut off age to adulthood. Either way, you do risk highly offending some guests.

Perosnally I would make a cutoff age at maybe 12 or 13.  That’s usually when kids stop crying, whining, running, and screaming, and turn to sulking and glaring to signify they don’t want to be there.
