If you decide to have an adults-only reception, that’s totally fine and it’s your decision. I just think under no circumstances should you ask guests to pay for their own children to come. There’s no polite way to word that.

@missmarchmommy: For us, on our RSVP my Darling Husband and I put “___ seats have been invited for ______” and filled in the numbers. SO for a family of 5 with 3 children, we put “2 seats have been reserved for John and Jane Smith”. And at the bottom put a place where they write down who in the household is RSVPing yes.

Also, we included a note that said  ‘Because of the sacred nature of the ceremony and seeing how the reception will last late into the evening, Please make arraingments for your children”

Hope this helps!
