Hi fellow bees…..first, this is not a post about whether kids should be invited or not. I have read some really interesting threads on the topic, but FI and I have already made up our minds to not have kids at our reception. The issue is what to put on the STD’s.
We are having a destination wedding in the Keys, and to give people enough notice, we are sending out our STD’s 1 year in advance. The people close to us know it is an adult-only affair, but some of the “outliers” (like the cousins I only see every few years) don’t know all of the deets. I was planning on just addressing the STD’s “Mr. and Mrs. RockCousin” (instead of Mr. and Mrs. RockCousin and family), but should I actually put “adult reception” somewhere on the STD’s? Or just let people find that info in our wedding website (link will be included on STD)? (Our Std’s are going to be post-card-style).
I am concerned because I have heard mention of “Cool, we will take our family vacation in the Keys in 2012” – which would be totally great, as long as they have someone to stay with the kids the night of the reception…..
