interested in this topic at the moment, i'm not sure about children either.
i have a lot of friends with children, and my own daughter will be a flower girl and i suppose my son will be there too but too young to do anything useful
i think friends would understand if you said no children i think mine would any way, but then i think but if they turn up and my children are there, that's a bit off isn't it?? my daughter would only be there for the ceremony then her dad would take her. but my son would stay because i don't have any one for him to go to as they are all at the wedidng!
it's definitely a tough one! i can understand both sides.
for me if i was invited to a wedding that said kids welcome, i would probably find a baby sitter any way so id idn't have to tend to their needs all the time! children are demanding and i like to go nice places with out them
i'd be appreciative of having an excuse to go out with out them lol
