We are wording it:

Adults Only Please.

Perhaps you could say: At the request of the happy couple, adults only please.

Or something like that.

That is a genius idea! I’ve never heard of putting it on the RSVP card. I wish we could do that, but we just can’t get away with it. We are spreading word through the grapevine and crossing our fingers.

Since the RSVP card is already kind of small, I would suggest not taking up a lot of room with a wordy explanation. I would keep it short and sweet like “Adults Only”, just like you would write on the reception card “Adults Only Reception to Follow”. Or, if you are providing instructions on how to fill out the RSVP card on the card, you can say “Please state each adults full name so that we may properly account for all guests. No children will be permitted into the ceremony or reception”. I guarantee some people still won’t even read it or assume it doesn’t apply to them (Their children are angels, right??), but at least you have some documentation for when you call them to break the news, again.

Thanks kcasam!  Not to mention when you address the actual invites it will drive the point more when you address only to the adults and not…And Family.

I’m doing “adult reception to follow” and then we’re kind of going to spread it through the grapevine to people that have kids that they’re not invited. (not in a rude way, obviously)
