I have 2 kids in the wedding and they aren't even coming to the reception. I don't want any kids there. I'll see what happens later on

My FI has a niece and a nephew that he is very close to and he wanted to make sure they were invited to the wedding. He also has a lot of friends who have kids, and we realized we couldnt just invite a couple and not the others. So now on our invite list we have the potential of 9 kids coming.

We have several nieces and one nephew coming, so we are planning on a family friendly resort with adults-only pools and areas so that if the kids are too much we can just hang out there. I went to Sandos Caracol in 2012 and stayed in the select section which had an adults only pool, and when we went to the beach there was an adults only lounge down there with a bar, snacks and internet access. That worked out pretty well for us, we never had problems with loud kids around.

I do think though that it is YOUR wedding and your choice. But whatever you choose, make sure the people with kids know without question what your policy is.

I stayed at the Sandos in 2013.  I wish the Grand Sirenis had that water park!!!

@calgarybride2015 I loved the fact that everything was sort of secluded, so we only even saw the waterpark once while wandering around in the paths along the edge of the resort. Stayed away from the main pool and things were pretty low key. Loved the cat cafe, we spent our evenings sitting in the seating area next to the select lounge on the beach with a cat curled up in my lap.

We ended up doing a kid friendly resort, and even negotiated 5 free kids in our package! So it will at least be our two kids, and our niece. Most of our friends have decided to not bring their kids, but they know they would be welcome!

@Maggietron
I actually loved the loud music and lively'ness of the main pool! 

When I went to Cuba we went to an adults only and this specific week was 60+ I swear to god LOL!!!!

So we wished there was some loud kids and music to entertain us.

 

We walked thru a bit of everything, and it was all nice.

I actually considered that resort for our wedding but their packages were absurd! WAY more than I had paid in 2013.

Hindsite, I am glad, I like to try new things. We are super stoked for the GS!

 

We hung out mainly at the bar there that is just before the pool hall and the buffets.  All those raccoons.  Massive resort though, our room was in the far back and it was a jaunt.

My FI wants us to do that, but I kind of feel bad inviting some kids and not others. On my side of the family the kids are all grown up. His 10 year old daughter will be there and his family and friends have kids but he doesn't want all of them there. I just don't want to insult anyone  :rolleyes:


I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
