One of the most hotly debated issues in planning a wedding is whatever or not to invite children. Some people feel that having children at a wedding can be an intrusion or a distraction for guests’ intent on participating in and honouring a very grown-up ritual. Others can’t imagine a wedding celebration without children. Here are some guidelines on inviting children to wedding celebrations:

How to let guests know that children are not invited?
If children are not invited, the proper way to communicate this is to write one the parents’ names on the envelopes on your wedding invitations. It is inappropriate to write “No Children” on the wedding invitations.
How to set limits when inviting children?
One of the most common problems is that of restricting the number of children attending the reception. In large families with dozens of cousins, nieces, and nephews, the costs of inviting them all might be prohibitive. One option is to draw the line by setting an age limit-inviting children ten and older, for example, to the wedding. Other ideas include inviting only the children of close family members and/or children of the wedding party, but this can get complicated. Either way, once you’ve made your decision, make no exceptions, since doing so will cause more hurt feelings than standing firm.
