Adding ages kinda makes me think of a movie ticket or something like that. Are you inviting that many people who you don’t know their ages? I would just reach out to people after you receive their RSVPs to ask how old the kids are if you don’t already know.

@MelBel:  I’m doing ages, and do not think it’s like a movie ticket at all. I think most every one knows that prives vary. and yes you might knwo the ages, but what if a family of 4 says 3 will attend, how will you know if it’s 1 adult and 1 kids, or 2 adults and 1 kid, and what if one kid is over ther other under the age ut offs. alot of calling around.

just put it on the RSVP 🙂

Personally, I would just put # of adults, # of children to help know how many adults and how many kids.  Then, based on what you and Fiance know about family ages, ball-park the age group.  I cannot imagine that your venue would go around and say that child looks like their 4 not 2.  You will be fine. 🙂

@MadTownGirl:  +1

Call those you’re not sure of.

Also, I’m getting kids meals for some of my 13-14 year old cousins because they’re picky eaters and will enjoy that more. You may want to do the same to save some dough.

I think it’s totally fine. I’m not sure why anyone would think this was ‘movie ticket’ like at all. It’s just an easy way of collecting the information.
