I’m sorry about your problems!  Did you have an inner envelope that said exactly who was invited?  I think I would call the people who added their children and tell them that you’re sorry but the kids can’t come.

You did good changing your website to say “Adult Reception” that should help get the word out there.  On the cases of people adding to their party I would just call them up and let them know that only the people whose name appeared on the invite are invited to the reception, obviously in a nice way:)  Good luck!!!!

We didn’t write in # of guests and had no inner envelope, but we nipped this one in the bud by wording the reception card: Adult reception (Adults only sounded a little harsh).  A few people asked if they could bring kids, and we politely demurred.  Others brought kids to the ceremony only which was fine.  It was nice to include kids somewhere.  I heard from most adults that they were pleased to have a night off from the kids, so try that angle.
