Because of space limitations, we had to eliminate our guests children. However, we kept on our immediate family members- my niece and my Fiance’s nieces (and nephew who is in wedding). Is it ok to do this and how do I let people know other than word of mouth. Im afraid if I say adult reception, and then guests see a couple kids there they will be confused… We have a website and I was thinking of putting something on there…?? any thoughts?

I think it is totally fine to do this. I think you should simply put the adult names on the invitation and if they write in their kids, you (or someone) should call them and let them know that they will not be able to bring them. I actually don’t think you need to put anything on the website – they shouldn’t assume they can bring their kids if the kids aren’t listed on the invite

On the RSVP, you can put that you have reserved X many seats in their honor.

I think you should be fine as long as you address the invites clearly, and/or list the number of invited guests on the rsvp. For us, we need to have our guests select their meal on the rsvp. So, since we’re not inviting everyone’s kids, we had an enclosure specifically for those with invited kids that told them to put the number of kids on the rsvp card. That way the people whose kids weren’t invited wouldn’t know that other people’s kids were.
