However, I recognize that some couples do not like kids... I have no interest in attending kid free weddings.

This assertion, and I can't believe how many people in this thread agree with you, strikes me as a very silly/self-absorbed/touchy way to respond to a wedding invitation.

Weddings with kids (mine was one) can be lovely. Weddings without kids can be lovely in a different way. As snippee noted, maybe the bride and groom want to start the festivities at 9 pm and have it be an elegant, intimate, adults-only affair. *shrug*

Assuming you care about the bridal couple, and being at their wedding is important to you, why not go with the flow? No one is excluding your children to insult you or because they "don't like kids".
