It sounds like you and I are having similar receptions.  🙂

I found this wording on another thread and really liked it: 

We look forward to dancing the night away with all the special people in our lives. Due to the venue size, we have been limited to an adult-only reception with the exception of nursing infants. We thank you in advance for your understanding.”

You could always change “venue size” to “type of event”.

I like piglet’s suggestion, but think it’s fair to expect that your fiance will personally call the individuals affected by the decision to, um, reinforce the point or smoothe over any bad feelings.

I’m curious as to why your Fiance thinks the insert will keep people from being offended, particularly if he’s not willing to bend the truth.  A card saying, “We don’t want to have kids at the wedding” doesn’t really change anything about the sentiment.
