Are kids coming to your destination wedding?

Recommended Posts

I may do this as well, but playing it by ear to see who is actually bringing their kids. If there are only a few, I won't make a thing of it but I don't want to bust my budget paying for people's kids at the reception.

 

I'm also considering coordinating among our guests bringing kids to bring an extra person on the trip to be a babysitter. I've thrown the idea out there and most of the parently would gladly split the cost of one person's trip to have an option for some adult time during the trip!

 

This may sound a little harsh... children are invited to the DW, but we requested the wedding day to be for adults 16+ only. Our resort has a kids' club & childcare

@@beckys98 - Yeah, our biggest reason for doing this is $$ - we are already paying for 40 extra dinners, drinks, chairs, etc... I can't get myself to pay an extra $10-12/kid...I mean, they can't appreciate it the same way. Call me cheap, I'm ok with it ;)

I don't think it`s harsh, if there is a kids club and childcare they have options and they will probably enjoy some time alone.

Thankfully under 12 was free at our resort for the wedding. The kids over are older teenagers so no worries.

 

The young kids are mainly mine so I can't so that. But we do have a kids club and may use it one or two days :)

I have two children they will be 16 and 12 when I have my wedding however many guest will also be able to bring their children if they wish most resorts do not charge as they would for adults when it comes to the reception. I honestly have no issue with adult only vacations but I can not imagine not bring my kids or allowing others to bring theirs.

We specifically sought out adults only resorts. Partly because we don't have kids and want people to celebrate and have a good time without having to worry about their little ones! No one can completely relax if they are on watch. We thought this would deter people from going (which we wouldn't have minded as this would keep guest list down) but as it turns out, most couples are excited to have a reason to leave their kids at home! Guess many parents are in need of a break and some adult time!

We will not be inviting them and discouraging parent friends bringing them along. Ideally, we would like a adults only resort.

 

I just think it distracts from the vacation aspect and partying.
