HOWTOEXPLAINKIDSTO EX­PLAIN KIDS AREN’T IN­VITED Ooh, it’s a tricky one, isn’t it? The older you are when you get mar­ried, the more likely you are to have friends with lit­tle ones in tow – and that can bump up costs con­sid­er­ably. The key is to make a de­ci­sion and stick to it. “There will al­ways be one or two guests who feel dis­grun­tled about a no-kids wed­ding, but mak­ing an ex­cep­tion to the rule could up­set those who have or­gan­ised child­care,” ad­vises eti­quette and wed­ding con­sul­tant Jo Bryant ( jo­bryant. com). “Be clear in the in­for­ma­tion that is sent out with the in­vi­ta­tions that chil­dren un­der a cer­tain age are not in­vited. Some­times it helps to give a rea­son, for ex­am­ple safety (a lake in the venue’s grounds) or size (if the re­cep­tion venue is small). Re­mem­ber that many par­ents will wel­come a child-free week­end away!”
