I don’t think it should be an issue to me 16 isnt a kid anyway.

I think 16 is much different than 5. Invite who you want to and don’t worry about it. Are there any teenagers on the other side? Maybe look at the ages and see if there is a natural cut off age, like a big gap between kids. In my opinion 16 year olds should be invited like adults as they are only 2 years away from being 18! They will probably enjand the dancing, just make sure they don’t sneak any drinks 😉

16 and a sibling sounds like a natural exception to a no kids rule. 

Are there a lot of teenagers in your FH’s side?  We had a no kids wedding, but I have one cousin that was 15 that we invited, and nobody said boo.

@carterk01:  I would say invite your sister, because immediate family (even if it’s “step”) should be an exception. However, I would have to say you should not invite your aunt’s son…that does seem like you’re playing favorites, because the other side of the family also has some 17 year olds. Yes, she may pitch a fit, but it’s only fair.

Aside from your step sister as she is immediate family, it should either be all kids or no kids.
