Are children invited?
Below are some wedding invitation wording examples that specifically
relate to how to word your invites regarding issue of children being
invited or not.
Whether or not you invite children to your wedding
day or reception is down to personal choice. You may need to consider
numbers, costs or even whether or not the venue is child friendly.
Ultimately it’s your wedding day and you may simply want to enjoy it the way you want, with or without children present.
You should use your wedding invitation wording to make it clear
whether or not children are welcome. You can do this in a number of
ways, the most obvious is including their names on the invitations
Address the envelope to the person or couple you are inviting. On the actual invitation list by name those specifically invited.

Unfortunately our wedding venue is not very

Alternatively, if children are invited, you could also use the
information card as an opportunity to let parents know their children’s
needs will be catered for.
A couple I worked with recently
arranged for a magician at their wedding reception and had the following
wording included in their information card for guests.
We welcome children to join us in celebrating our wedding day.
Please let us know if yours will be attending
so we can organise enough fun entertainment for them.
If children are coming to your wedding day, especially if you are
having a sit down meal, it’s a good idea to know their ages
in advance. That way you can arrange special child
friendly meals and drinks if necessary. It’s also a nice idea to
supply a small gift bag at the table for children, some crayons, a
colouring book and a small toy will keep them entertained and will certainly be appreciated by their parents!
