We don’t have very many kids on either side of the family.  I think that if we were to not invite children that the few people with kids will feel singled out.  I’ll let the parents choose whether or not they want to bring their kids to the wedding.  As for our wedding party, I *might* choose to have a Flower Girl or two.  I have two neices who will be old enough to do it by that time but I’m waiting to ask them until it gets closer.

My current degree is in Child Development and I have a serious connection to all of my little cousins (think I’ve been babysitting them since they were born kind of relationship) so the idea of not inviting them didn’t even occur to me. We had planned originally to only allow immediate relatives to bring their children – but only my side has kids (FI’s side’s youngest is 13) and I only have two friends with kids – one of whom’s daughter is the flower girl and the other is a bridal party member. So we ended up with 12 kids under 11 (that’s who I’m doing bags for) and 3 infants under 2 years old. My bridesmaid has a 2 year old, I gave her the option and she chose not to bring her daughter…. which is fine by me. (I also decided to invite the families for whom I babysit regularly – which did add a few more kids).

@LadyCupcake:  We have just under 30 kids that are going to be invited (FI has a ton of little cousins). They are welcome for the ceremony & reception. I don’t think its right when people say no kids allowed. I don’t have any kids myself (not yet anyways) & I would be so offended/upset if my Fiance & I were invited to a wedding but not our kids.
