i think our final kid count came to 16. our whole list is 50 so 1/3 of our list is kids lol. we come from a big family where everyone has kids and since we were already including several kids in the wedding we decided to include all the kids. i dont look at it as holy crap its a lot of kids i look at it as $12 a plate instead of $22 lol

our kids means are chicken fingers, fries and drinks. i still think 12 bucks is high for some chicken fingers but its better than $22 for some noodles lmao. i know all the kids will be adorable. ii told the parents to dress nice but to make the little ones super dressed up so the pictures will look great. my 2 year old already tears up a room dancing!

We will have around 22 kids under 15 year old, some are twins.. We’re doing buffet so I just need to adjust some meals to be kids friendly. I am just a little bit concerned because our reception venue will be by the pool, I really hope the kids will not jump to the pool (I haven’t thought about it when we agreed to use the venue!), I know it’s awful but I think I have enough time to figure it out till the wedding…

We’re having 13…they eat for free from our caterer (yay!) so the more the merrier. I’ve had the most fun designing the kids table (chalkboard tablecloth, giant mr potato head, giant playdoh cans, pinwheels, lollipop flower arrangements) that the kids table might be nicer than all the rest! 🙂

it depends on what you mean by kids. As in little kids? 2. The ring bearer and flower girl. They will probably leave before the reception starts though. We’re having an adults only reception though. I think the youngest will be 12 though.

I think there will probably just be one 6 year old! None of my friends/family have kids right now, except my Future Sister-In-Law. He will probably be a bit bored but he’s kinda used to being the only kid at family gatherings so I think he’ll be fine.

We have exactly one three-year-old coming and no other children. It just kind of happened.

There are 20 small (mostly under 5) children attached to our wedding guests.  None are relatives.  They’re all children of friends.  None of them are invited to the wedding (though I suspect one is going to be snuck in, which is annoying, but not a big deal).  9 of them are coming to either our “rehearsal” bbq the night before and/or brunch the next day.
