Hi, I think its becoming more and more common to have adult only weddings so I don’t think many people will be upset. For alot of parents they will welcome a night away from the kids! I would just specify ‘adults only’ reception on the save the date and invite. If you have a lot of guests with children is it possible to arrange a babysitting service in a room near the reception for people who are travelling out of town (or ‘accidently’ forget and bring their children anyway). You could hire someone to look after the children in a room with disney films/ age appropriate toys?

For your second point, are you still friendly with their dad? Enough to request that they could pick your children up after the ceremony? If not, again hiring someone to look after childen for the reception could work. Or do you have an aquintance from teh childrens school or friend of a friend with children the same age that they could stay with?

PossumGirl:  I would suggest asking their father to pick them up after the ceremony if you don’t invite them to the reception. You can even ask your dad, you have options. This is your wedding day, I am sure your dad will understand. 🙂
