I remember when I was younger my mum getting invited to a wedding and us kids didn't but it was because the person was just having close family. I definitely want children at mine, little flower girls I just feel wedding is also about family and children are part of the family.
No children at weddings Watch

Funny seeing people in their teens and early twenties go 'I hate kids, they're such little ****s' when it wasn't too long ago that they themselves indulged in this practice. Don't get too overwhelmed by your overpowering maturity now..
But as for me, I wouldn't mind as long as the children in question were those of the 'closer' guests, as it were. My mum's a teacher (reception) so I imagine she'd love to meet nieces and nephews of my significant other, or my close friends' children. Likewise I'd hope that the in-laws would like to meet my nieces/nephews (though I probably won't have any when I get married as my brother and sister are younger than me).

Also amused at the number of people who think children would ruin the weddings... I've been to a few weddings that were 'ruined' but it was generally by very drunk 'grown ups'...

I'd let kids at my wedding, I don't think they'd ruin it. Also if you ban them, it makes things difficult for the parents.
I hated it when I was younger and I wasn't invited to family weddings. Even when I was 13 and obviously at an age where I'd behave myself, I was still left out from my second cousin's wedding even though my parents were invited and it didn't seem particularly fair.
