I think selecting one child from each family would be rude and show favoritism.  I also find it rude to invite people to only portions of the celebration.  I would stick to inviting who you can afford, and avoid hand-picking guests. 

The whole point of the wedding reception is to thank guests for attending the ceremony; by telling some people that they can show up after the dinner is served, it comes across as saying they weren’t important enough to go to the ceremony or dinner.  I know that’s not your intention, but that’s how it looks to me.  Sorry!

It’s not polite to invite people only to the “free” part of the reception. You either invite them or don’t.

But it is perfectly polite to invite only those closest to the couple to the function. There is nothing that says one sibling gets to go to every party the other gets invited to.
