We are having an adult only ceremony and reception.
I can add “Adult only” to “Reception to follow”,
but how do i indicate that the ceremony is also only for adults?
Please see below for my current wording:
Together with our parents, we
invite you to share with us of our union
Sunday, the twelfth of September
two thousand ten
at time o’clock in the afternoon
Reception to follow
in the afternoon

You can just indicate on the envelope the names of people invited (obviously no children would be listed there) and on your RSVP card put something to the effect of “___ seats have been reserved in your honor” or something like that to help prevent people from adding their children to the invite.
And if someone still does, you just have to call them and let them know that, unfortuantely, you are unable to include their child(ren) in the event but hope that they will still be able to celebrate with you.

Honestly, you shouldn’t put “adults only” anywhere on the invitation. It’s not proper etiquette. The way you indicate that the event is adults only is that you only put the name of the people invited (adults) on the invitation. If people try to add their children to the RSVP card then you call them and politely let them know that you can not accomodate their children.
Also.. your line “invite you to share with us of our union” doesn’t make sense. Maybe change it to just “invite you to witness our union”
