You don’t have to invite anyone’s children if you choose not to.

I think it depends a lot on your child policy at the wedding and your relationship with this person. Are all your family and friends allowed to bring their children? If so, I don’t think you can exclude a few kids from one person.

I know you may not have necessarily met the children, but how close is your fiance to this colleague? I’m very close with a coworker, and she’ll be invited to the wedding along with her fiance and their son (both of whom I have never met), because she’s such a good friend of mine, I wouldn’t want her to have to leave them behind, and I’m only too happy to have my friend’s family at the wedding

Nope. We will only be inviting children of family. Not of friends, and certainly not of coworkers.

inviting the children of co-workers is not necessary but the spouse of course.

NO way …. we only invited kids that were part of our family.  I love kids at weddings but seriously there’s a limit.

Are you inviting everyone elses kids? If so, invite them. Otherwise, 4 kids is a damn lot… and kids don’t need to be invited at all if you don’t want them there!
