Kids not invited to AHR; Is this rude?

Mrs. Martin

Recommended Posts

My parents are hosting an AHR immediatly when we get back from our DW, so needless-to-say, I need to start working on this!!! When we figured out our guest list, we realized we had over 250 people (and this is just family). We are having it at my parents home, which will not fit that many people. It's not a formal affair, but I don't want it to me like a birthday party either.


Would it be rude to specify adult-only reception even if it's not a formal event? My FMIL seemed a little bothered by it, but then again she's not helping my family pay for it, so I don't think it should be up to her. If we eliminate the kids, we will be able to invite everyone we want and comfortably fit everyone. What do you all think?

Kids and drinking don't mix- at least in my mind. I hate getting drunk while a little one is innocently looking at me like "wow, you dirty lush."


Anyways- it's your party, you call the shots. I don't think it's rude at all. It's like having any other party at your house- say an adult Christmas party. Is it rude to ask people to not bring their kids? Absolutely not. It's adult fun time, not a BBQ for all ages. :)
