Im in the process of ordering our wedding invitations, and just need some help on the wording.
We decided we didn’t really want kids at the wedding, but then realized the family kids woud be very upset (they are all over 9 but our flower girl)
How do i word it nicely at the bottom of the invite family kids only?

@anb23: ETA: I didn’t realize you were inviting some but not all kids. There really isn’t a way to word that, especially for the invitaion. The best you can do is make sure you address the invitations only to the people you want to come.

You don’t. It would be one thing if no kids were invited – then I would suggest “Adult reception to follow.” But since you are allowing family children to come, you need to handle this through two things:
1. The RSVP number that the previous poster mentioned.
2. Addressing the envelope of the invitation very specifically to the person invited. “John & Jane Doe” or “Mark, Sarah, and Johnny Smith.” You can put “The Smith Family” as long as the kids are invited. Basically, for people whose kids are NOT invited, write the people’s names who are invited.
