    We had tons of kids at our wedding. Kid free weddings are not my style at all. Not one made a peep during the ceremony. Never heard a single one cry or fuss the whole day.

    We’re not having any. My fiance’s brother got married in October and that really solidified our decision not to have kids at our wedding. One toddler cried during the ceremony and other kids ran wild during the reception.

    We had 19 supposedly coming, actual number was probably more like 25. But it’s funny, when I was talking to friends about the wedding the other night they actually said they didn’t even notice kids being there.

    And for me, they were fine. They were totally enamored with us and the decor and they always got the party started by being the first lil’ people on the dance floor. It was a total non issue.

    Just 1 came to our reception. My sister’s 3 week old daughter was the exception to our no kids rule and she was very good and slept most of the time.

    What do you count as kids? I have a ton of cousins that are still teenagers (there were at least a dozen of them because they filled up a table), but I wouldn’t classify most as kids. I think we only had one toddler present, the ring bearer. Only a few people invited had young children anyway, but they chose to leave them behind.

    I was totally cool with kids at the wedding. It was a Sunday afternoon with an outdoor reception, definitely kid friendly. It just turned out that we got married at a time when most of our friends and family didn’t have young kids!

    We literally have one child coming to the reception. But about 15 coming to the ceremony.

    The only reason the one is coming to the reception is because he is the ring bearer and its not 100% if he will be coming or not yet…

    We’re not having a flower girl or ring bearer, so we’re putting in our invitiations no children under 10. There are a few who have kids that are 7 or 8, so we’ll probably call them personally and tell them that they can come.
