There is no nice way of saying that, or any other criteria for exclusion.

 

Having said that, the only people invited are those mentioned by name of the invitaion. Address the envelope to those named people. On the response card have wording that clearly indicates how many seats have been reserved for that invitation.

 

We have reserved ___ seats in your honor.  You fill in the number.

 

Most couples have to deal with at least a few people who change the number or write in additional names. These people require follow- up phone calls. “ We are sorry, but we are not able to extend an invitation to include extra guests. If that means you are unable to attend, we will understand.”

 

Do not get into any explanation about budget, size of the room etc. These are the same people who will magically come up with solutions to those problems.

Write the number of invited guests on the RSVP.  Spread the age restriction by word of mouth.
