You can do whatever you like, and child free weddings aren’t uncommon.

However, just remember that some parents won’t be willing to leave their kids at home, and will decline your invitation due to this.

EDIT : There’s also an option of finding some type of entertainment for the kids. Depending on the venue I choose, I might rent a bounce house and make an outside [enclosed in a tent, with a fence] “bar”, with soft drinks & snacks for them. Maybe a movie projector.

@newcitylights:  I want the same: NO KIDS. I think my Fiance and I agreed that we dont mind if the parents dont even come bc of that. However, one thing that many people suggest is hiring a babysitter for the night so people can bring the kids and leave them with a hired sitter. That idea seems like it wouldnt 100% work to me bc if the sitter is at the venue and the kids know their parents are a room or 2 away I think they would venture off. I’m probably wrong though.
