basically you put the name of those who are invited on the invite thats it, you can on the invitation say “no children” however, you should make it a universal rule except for yoru flower girl and ring bearer
and they ll call and beg and be pissed but just stay firm

We are only inviting the kids that are in the wedding (my neices and newphews and Fiance 6 year old sister). I will not have any other kids there and we have made this clear to everyone and I am sure there will be somebody that breaks the rules but we have made it clear.
The sit down dinner for the kids cost the same amount as an adult- $64.95 and I am sure everybody knows that little kids do not eat much so I can think of a lot of other things to do with that money, like spend it on my honeymoon.

The only kids we are inviting are involved in the ceremony. Althought….many families we are inviting 2 guests (the parents) and I have heard that some families are sending one parent and one child. I guess I will have to wait until my wedding to find out!

Just beware – some people will RSVP with kids even if Family is not on the invite. I agree with pp that you should probably adopt a blanket rule on which kids will be there, nieces & nephews only, only kids in the Wedding Party, etc.
Best of luck 🙂

We only invited children of our family members. We had one RSVP come back with children on it, which were my parents friends. I think my parents talked to them and said they’d understand if they couldn’t make because we weren’t having children at the reception and it was fine.
If you’re firm about your rule and not mean about it, I think’ll it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

I have one past boss/mentor that I want to invite. Ive met his kids, but it feels weird to invite them. Yet, I know they are well behaved and we are already inviting a LOT of other kids. So, invite them and just leave it up to them to RSVP for the kids or not?
