How about “We welcome all guests over the age of 5”

 

ETA: That said, they still may not get it.

Yes, that is rude. I would just address the envelopes with who you want invited. Example: Mr & Mrs John Doe and don’t say “The Doe Family” or include the kids names anywhere.

I know this isn’t what you want to hear, but there is no nice way of saying it.  You should just address the invitations to all guests over 5 and leave guests under 5 off the invitation.

@MissNumbers:  +1.

I wouldn’t put any disclaimers about the age of acceptable children in the invitation. If you have a wedding website, I would consider putting it on there instead and fielding questions/concerns/complaints as they come in – if any.

@Future_Mrs_Naugle:  I assume you’ve asked them to fill in their names on the card?  And the number of people attending?  If you know that number includes guests under 5, a very awkward phone call/email is in order.

Honestly, we chose just to invite all the kids just so we could avoid the situation!  :S

Sorry!

I should of mentioned this in my first reply, but how many under 5 are there? Personally for us there are only 2 very little kids and they are my cousin’s kids. I am going to have my mom talk to my cousin or their mom (my aunt) to get the word across that babies aren’t welcome. This is in addition to my plan of addressing it to “Mr & Mrs John Doe” only. 

Sadly, you’d think I wouldn’t have to do this but my cousin took her 4 month old baby to a black tie reception a few months ago. Ugh.
