    i would say both put it on your website and then contact those guests personally to let them know of your options. putting it in your invites may or may not seem pushy to sensitive parents.

    We’re having an adults only reception (expect the few kids in the wedding party). My plan is to ask a few of my brother’s friends (expert babysitters) to watch the kids back at the hotel. I’m going to put it on our wedding website and also let people know by word of mouth that if they are interested they should contact me just so I can let them know the details and let the girls know how many kids they should expect to watch. I’m hoping that will work well.

    my husband and i are renewing our wedding vows in october.  on the card in our invitation envelope, we have the following: latter part of reception will be “grown and sexy-adults only”. our d.j. will make the announcement when the music starts, and every 30 minutes after.  the beginning of our receptino will be family oriented.  we have 3 girls and the music will be cool for them but after the grown and sexy part begins, the music will be all uncut, booty shaking, butt grinding, 🙂  if people wanna stay for the entire recep., they will not even bring their children at all..
