@aabsolut12:  You should go the daycare route. It’s a very nice gesture and in no way required. If the daycare is licensed and insured, the parents shouldn’t have a problem with it and you can make exceptions for nursing infants (not nursing toddlers) who are pretty much inseparable from momma.

I agree with what was just said. Go the daycare route.

I wish we had an in-family daycare! We’re hiring babysitters for any kids, local, Out of Town, whatever. Fortunately I don’t think there will be any nursing infants. because I would not want them there either. (Yes, I know that means parents cannot come. That’s fine. I don’t want kids screaming during my wedding, and therefore I chose not to have any.)

While you can offer the day care option to parents, you certainly cannot force anyone to use it.

That being said, invite whomever you like and parents who are invited without their children can either accept or decline as they see fit.

I do suspect that many people will not want to leave their kids in an unknown, facility with unknown caregivers.
