Adults Only Reception

What are your gut reactions to this concept?
If I do this, should I provide a babysitter for kids who came on the trip?
Do folks tend to bring their kids to DW's anyway?
Please share your thoughts....

Almost everyone invited with kids havechildren under the age of 10. I have no children but my fiancee has a son. While the son is a part of the ceremony, he is also not invited to the reception.
I planned to arrange for a sitter (my fiancee is Jamaican and has friends who can sit during the reception) a DVD and pizza and puzzle for the boys.
I took a poll of my friends with kids and most did not plan to travel with them. At that time I thought about having a "children's reception" but in the end decided that I would not bother.
I don't know if most parents would leave their kids with a sitter they did not know in a foreign country.
I have since learned that more of my guests will be making a family vacation out of the wedding. All of them know the children are welcome at the ceremony but are not invited to attend the reception. They can choose to use a sitter we arrange for my nephew and stepson or not.
I love my nephew and sat through a wedding reception with him. He had fun, I did not. Of course this would be in a different capacity but we did not want a "family friendly" reception full of kids so we are not having one. I have not thought for one minute that I should change my mind.
