vivaciousbride1989:  “Over 30 children all under the age of 3?” Good Lord, that’s two pre-school classrooms.

P.S. Is it an evening wedding? There’ll be a better chance that your guests won’t have a huge problem leaving little ones, who go to bed in the 7:00-8:00 PM range, at home in the care of a babysitter.

I came across this and will comment because my friend was asking me how to word it and I agree as some mentioned to say “__ seats are reserved for Mr. and Mrs.” The envelope alone being addressed to “Mr. and Mrs.” should be all people need to see that it’s just for adults. Imo, it’s tasteless to bring children when they aren’t invited. The is no price for children and if I’m on a budget, the last thing I want to spend money on is children that I didn’t invite in the first place. I don’t understand why people can’t accept that. When I was younger, my parents used to get invitations for weddings addressed to them and I would ask if I was invited and they said “it’s for adults only” and got me a sitter. People make it a bigger deal than it is. Its the bride and grooms decision.
