I know it might look bad, but would it be cheaper to print either a nice sticker or buy a custom stamp to put on the cards? Depends on how well you know your guests, if you think they’ll respect the name on the envelope thing, then don’t bother, I’m sure it will be fine.

You are actually doing the most correct and polite thing. Inviting those guests you wish to invite, not mentioning who is not invited, and not assuming your guests are rude boors who would consider bringing an uninvited guest.

If you have the standard rsvp of




People will write in who is attending. Then if any of your guests prove to misunderstand you can follow up with them privately.

It’s incredibly rude to print on an invitation who is NOT invited. Your invitations are fine, and you can have conversations with people who have kids if you need to.
