    Don't worry too much about it. If people really want to be there they will find someone to care for their children.

    We went to a wedding interstate recently. It clearly said no kids which made it hard but we respected their wishes. I was so angry that when we go there there were 20-30kids running around. Apparently no one paid attention. To the invitation. I had to leave dd with some one she didn't know very well (but who I trusted) overnight ( the wedding was 80kms out of town) and parents who lived there took them anyway. Not enough seats food etc... It was a mess!

    Now on my computer. Accidentially completed the post before i finished on my phone. Sorry!

    Anywhoo I spoke to the bride a few days later and she was so upset it happened. apparently all the parents just shrugged it off. Not only did it leave a bad taste in the mouths of the parents who had done the right thing but it soured the night for the happy couple.

    After that experience, i would suggest to anyone who wants a kid free wedding NOT to rely on invitations but to also call and confirm they understand NO KIDS (With the exception of Babies).

    It might be a bit of a pain but it might also make your big day alot more enjoyable.

    I don't mind a child free wedding, but yes - be upfront. My cousin invited DH and I to his wedding but not my DS (11 months at the time) he didn't mention no kids, just left him off the invite so I had to ask him, then he got really annoyed at me when I said well I don't know If I can make it. They are from Vic but got married in QLD so apparently I was expected to be there... I was a bit bitter but went anyway and it was lovely. I was annoyed to see a few other kids there though...

    Be clear on the invite but don't write what my cousin did - "no children or dogs". Ugh.

    A friend had to write 'No Jeans' on her invites, because her DH's family considered the formal wear lol

    Definitely be clear that you are having no children so there are no misunderstandings.

    We had our nieces and nephews only, and of course our DD who was 3 at the time. But we made it very clear that they were only there until after dinner, as we wanted the parents to enjoy the rest of the night. We has their own table set up and decorated with balloons etc. We organised a babysitter to pick up our DD and the other children requiring care and look after them until MIL got home, she worked at our daycare so was awesome
