    Hi girls. I've been sorting out the invites wording today as we're doing our first draft next month, for the people who are having no kids in the day are you mentioning you can't invite children at all on the invite? 

    We are just having close family kids in the day but are inviting family and friends kids to the evening reception so the kids will be recieving a separate evening invite. Would that be enough do you think? Most do know kids are just invited to the night but there are still a few family members who dont and I was wondering whether I neeeded to spell it out on the invite or whether an evening invite with their childs name on was enough? Thanks girls Xx

    Sorry, bit confused, are you having people for the day and night do that have kids but are only inviting the kids to the night do?

    If I've got that right then you need to be explicit but in a nice way as you don't want any mix ups .

    Sorry for the confusion. Basically i'm inviting the parents to the whole day but the kids to just the night. For example I'm inviting Lauren and Jack (parents) to the day and then Freddie and Ollie (kids)to the night. I'd have one invite to lauren and Jack and an evening invite for Freddie and Ollie xx

    Thanks Michelle. Thats what I was kind of thinking. To me it'd be obvious if my kids got an evening invite and werent included on the main one but theres always someone who doesnt follow the rules :) xx

    Any help on wording?

    I was thinking something like -

    As much as we would like to invite children, it is only possible to accommodate immediate family children to the day.

    OR

    As much as we love children, the only children invited to the day are close family. Separate invites will be sent out for children for the evening do. Thanks.

    Or something like that xx

    I'd combine the 2.

    As much as we would like to include children, it is only possible to accommodate immediate family children to the day. However separate invites will be sent out for children to join us for the evening reception

    I'd be tempted to say that in order to make your day extra special and make the wedding ceremony as perfect as possible then ku would appreciate children's attendance only to the evening party where they will be able to have fun and dance the night away .. That way parents can't argue back and say well why can't I bring my child .. If it's the bride and grooms wishes for a peaceful ceremony then it's only fair

    Or the same end bit but.. " to ensure the enjoyment of all our guests we appreciate...."

    I probably wouldn't even mention that immediate family children are invited to the day/.... i'd just say something along the lines of - As much as we love children, we would appreciate it if they only attended the evening reception where they can have fun and dance the night away :D x
