    I agree with you – if you were to allow your friends kids, you would need to let all friends & family’s kids to come. 

    The exception to the rule are the kids in the wedding only (like Flower Girl & Ring Bearer.)

    I would sit down and discuss how much it means to you to have/don’t have kids at the wedding. Also, what would be the additional cost or space (if that is a factor.) But overall, whatever decision you make, it does have to be an all or nothing situation.

    I disagree that allowing children of bridal party members means you have to allow everyone’s children.  Your bridal party is already going through a lot more as a member of the party then a typical guest is and should be afforded a little convenience if they’d like.  If you’re having your reception in a hotel maybe you could just rent a room and hire a babysitter upstairs for the kids – that’s what we will be doing.

    That’s still a topic up in the air for us smh, but we’re leaning towards only close family to bring kids…
