I say, invite them all or have a thick skin. We invited all kids, but that was because Fiance was willing to pay for them. They are cheap 🙂

However, there is no rule that you have to treat all kids equally and that you have to invite them all. Just be polite, firm, and don’t mention that some kids will be invited and others won’t be.

@mepayne:  I’m not sure why the hate on for etiquette based on this situation you described.

You are free to invite whomever you like to share in your day.  You are the hosts, and you determine the guest list.  It would be most rude for a guest to question that. 

The only etiquette “rule” about who must be invited is that social units must be invited together.  Other then that, it is fully your discretion.  No one is entitled to an invitation, regardless of their familial relationship.

@mepayne:  No.  People often default to this because it can be easier.  But it is certainly not required. 

In fact, one could argue that it is more polite to not invite someone to witness such an important and intimate event, if they do not have the relationship to back that up. 

The only people that must be invited are the other halves of  social units.
