@GingerSnapped19:  Well first of all I wouldn’t put it directly on your invitations. You should put it on a seperate card and insert it in the invitation. You could say something like.

We do request that no children under **be in attendance, thank you for your understanding”.

As far as asking your guests not to wear white, generally people don’t wear white to weddings and even if they do, I really dont think it will steal your thunder. Because honestly there’s really no polite way to ask your guests to NOT wear a certain color. But NO ONE else will be wearing a white WEDDING gown! It is your wedding, ALL eyes will be on you, not on the other guest that wore a white dress.  🙂

Don’t worry about the color your guests wear.  Unless they’re complete fools, they’ll neither wear white nor be confused about who the bride is.  Let that one go.

For children, simply do not include their names on the invitation.  If people respond that they’ll be bringing Sally and Buddy, call them and say that unfortunately, no children are invited.

I like helping people word stuff, but…why 7? That’s kind of a random cut off age. Are you worried that anyone will see this and think you’re specifically trying to exclude their child?
