Hi bees, I kind of have a dilemma, we did not really want to have kids come to the reception, but on our reception card, we kind of forgot to mention “adult reception following…” and it’s too late to make the changes. Do you guys have any suggestions as to how to tell these guests not to bring their kids? or do you think it’s fine to just leave it as is and just hope that they don’t bring them? I’m kind of stressed out about it because our numbers are limited…thanks for your help!!

Do you have a wedding website you could make this clear on? Or individually contact those people who have kids they might bring to let them know? It will depend on how many people you’re talking about but if you’re really adamant you don’t want any kids there you need to do something proactive, or you’ll risk having people bring their kids along.
In my experience, even before we sent our invitations, our friends with kids were really constructive about asking whether their kids were invited and making it really clear that it was absolutely fine if they weren’t.
