Wow that is hard. I’d say you probably can’t invite the parents and not the children. I’d also say you probably can’t invite some of the parents but not all of them (if they still talk). So you might have a package deal on your hands 🙁 Are you allowing kids generally? Could you make a no-kids-under-x-years rule and not invite the kids?

Well if you can, I would. It’s possible since you haven’t talked to them in so long, that they won’t come anyway. It would be one thing if you guys were never close, but since you have a shared history with them… my gut says it’s the right thing to do.

I’m inviting 3 sets of my parents’ friends, but none of their children. It does help that none of them live locally (in fact 2 of them are in Europe) and while we were all closer when we were young, I haven’t seen or spoken to those girls for years (Facebook doesn’t count). I wouldn’t expect to be invited to their weddings, and I think they (and their parents) will be ok with them not being invited. Maybe you could talk to your parents about it to see what they think?

What do your parents think of this? Have you talked to them about it? I am curious to see hear their opinion, and that may make up your mind for you.
