We aren’t having kids at the wedding outside of those that are actually in the wedding party. We aren’t writing anything on the invitations as that seems to be a no-no on the ettiquette front. We have let people know that there are no kids invited more informally and will only be addressing the invites to the adults. We’ll contact anyone who RSVPs including little people to ensure they make plans for their little ones.

One thing to think about though is whether you really want to let some people (even if it is immediate family) bring kids and not other people.  You might be in for some arguments if you go that route (though maybe not, who knows).  I just think it’s good to have a hard-and-fast rule and no exceptions, that will make it easier on you.

No kids for us, either, but I think your wording could be a little less…aburpt? As you said, it needs some work. 🙂

But it’s YOUR wedding and it should be up to you if you have kid there.

That’s why we are having an evening wedding

I have 4 kids…..they are coming to the ceremony but NOT the reception!!!  I think it is a nice time for the adults to have a break….including me!

We’re having almost no kids.  We’re both near the oldest in our extended families, and seem to run in a circle of DINKs (Double Income, No Kids), so even with inviting everybody we wanted, there was only two people who had children invited.  One friend, and my cousin.  They’ve both opted to leave their kids at home, but one will have to bring a breastfeeding infant.
