Are kids coming to your destination wedding?

Recommended Posts

I know that it is okay to have an adults only ceremony and reception. But it is okay to have an adults only destination wedding? Meaning not allowing kids to come to the resort. We would like to have an adults only weekend, and not be around screaming kids and breast feeding. If we did allow kids we would have around 30 kids there and completely change the tone of the weekend.

 

How do we communicate this to our guests?

30 kids sounds like a whole lot! Would these parents even be able to go if their kids couldn't attend? Adults only AI sounds like the way to go.

Wow....

Family history tells me that people sometimes take offence to this.

Kids are coming to mine, but it is a week long.

If yours was a week away, I would say no...not many parents can arrange child care for a week or want to part with their kids for that long.

BUT, this is a weekend...much easier to swallow, arrange and position.

Position it as a "fun getaway" at an adults only AI and I think you'll be ok.

One other thing to consider is who you have invited... in families, you may run into trouble if those being counted on to baby sit are also invited to the wedding.

Wow, 30 kids?!?! Anyhoo, we booked at a child-friendly resort as my FI's two nephews (3 y/o and 1 y/o) will be coming. I couldn't exactly say no since it's immediate family. I would have liked to have booked at an adults only AI though. Oh well...

If you have your heart set on a kid-free wedding than an adults only resort is the way to go. Keep in mind though, if your guests are staying for a week you may run into issues w/ people not being able to go b/c of babysitting circumstances.

Kids are coming to my wedding but they are all about 7 years of age. We have mostly family coming along and kind of approached our wedding as an opportunity for everyone to have a vacation. Ultimately it is up to you and what will make your day what you want. I would think that booking an adult only resort would get the idea across. Maybe you could recommend another kid friendly resort close by for those who want to take their kids to vacation and the adults can come to your resort for the day of the wedding.

Kids will be attending our wedding, I know I can't find a babysitter for a week. If you don't have kids then it would be hard for you to understand. And my normal babysitters are my mom and FI mom, and they both are attending the wedding. So, I feel if my kids are going to be there, I can't tell the rest of the guests that thiers can't come. I'm with the other girls, if you want an ADULT ONLY wedding, then you need to bring it up to your family ASAP. You may find that people you thought would be there may not come if their kids aren't welcome. Good Luck with your decision, and keep us posted!
