I believe if they are over 18 it is customary to send them thier own invitation. However, I think this might be up to you. If the children no longer live in the house full time they will need there own invitation. If they are living in the house you probably could get away with sending only one invite depending on how close to the book of ettiquite you are wanting to follow. Also make sure they know what “grown” means. if you have a family with an 12 year old, 16 year old and 18 year old who is considered ‘grown?

You can’t.  The entire reception is a thank you to your guests for coming to your wedding.  Either cut down your guest list, or find a way to host all your guests for your entire wedding.  

Sorry this is so harsh, but it’s one of the realites of wedding planning.

One of my friends is inviting some to only the reception, and she got different ‘reception’ invites.

It is super rude to basically say, “Hey, you’re not important enough for us to pay for your meal, but we still want you to come party with us and give us a present.” Even if you don’t care about gifts, that is how it will come off – either invite them to everything or nothing. It would be different if your ceremony was super tiny, like just your parents and siblings. But you can’t include your aunts and uncles in everything and then say their grown children can only come for the non-meal part.

Nope, just address them with the correct names, 

Mr and Mrs John Smith, Tiffany Smith, David Smith.

Unless they dont live at home, then obviously, you need to invite them directly.
