    Kid free wedding in any form. My kids are a part of me - don't invite me and not them.

    They have flower girls / ring bearers but other kids aren't invited

    Family-guests' kids ARE invited but friend-guests' kids ARE NOT invited

    Immediate family's kids (bride or groom's nieces and nephews) not invited

    Breast feeding infants not invited

    Out of town guests' kids not invited

    No kids due to bride/groom preference as opposed to inappropriate venue/costs/maximum headcount etc.

    Kids can come if needed but have to stay in supervised (fun!) crèche and not allowed to join adults

    None of the above. If I have kids I might not attend for logistical reasons but not upset/offended

    My brother in law pulled a stunt like that. His 17 month old grandson was not invited to my daughter’s evening/blacktie wedding. It was held in a venue that accomodated less than 100 people. If everyon’e kids would have been invited, attendance would have pushed closer to 130. My his daughter/niece wrote the bride an e-mail about bringing him, because she thought it would be “a good way for him to meet the family.” She had already had her no kids invited wedding, plus she described him as “the little monster.”

    Needless to say, he wasn’t allowed. His parents didn’t smile the entire evening and left 2 hours early, despite having to fly over 2 hours to get there. We were so glad to see their backs, going out the door. Like it should all be what they want, not what the bride and groom want. Bleh!!!
