Should you invite children to your wedding?

So the question of the day today is...*drum roll please*...  
Should you invite children to your wedding?

If you asked me this question five years ago, I totally would of said NO! In fact, I didn't invite children to my wedding by doing it the only etiquette friendly way I knew how - by leaving their names off the invitation. People brought their children anyway and ultimately, it ended up being a ton of fun. Those kids... They rocked it on the dance floor. They were cute and funny and joyful. They had parents that took them out of the room when they misbehaved. I felt like an idiot.

I know not every wedding is conducive to having children attend. What do you think? Will you be inviting them to your wedding?

I would suggest hiring a professional event sitting service that can do a party for the kids in another room and for those brides who REALLY don't want to have kids present, offer hotel sitters to guests that insist on traveling with the kids.

Thanks for your input, ladies! :)

I would say NO. Simply state in the invitation that kids will not be allowed or something (in a nice way). Kids are adorable and I love for them to have fun, but a wedding is just not for them.
