Ok..Few issues here:
1. We are not allowing children under 15 yr. old. My youngest cousin is 15 yr old & i want her to be the cut off so people can’t bring their 12 yr old children.
2. We are not allowing guests unless you are in the wedding party, engaged, or married. We have a lot of family, single friends & our guest list is at capacity for our budget & the venue. I know it may appear rude to some but most of our friends are friends with each other so it wouldn’t be awkward to come alone. Also family is family, they know each other. Also, my fiance & I don’t want to spend our special day with strangers. Are we wrong?
Guests with small children, should I address their STD & invitations with only the parent’s names?
I wish i could put in a disclaimer but that is tacky!
What to do….???

You could have on your reception card the words “adult reception” that kind of rules the kiddies out..
just an idea.

i agree, maybe put “adult reception”, also address the invites with the names of those you are inviting specifically.. not the “so and so family”, because they may bring their 17 yr. old and 11 yr. old.
I plan on doing the same. “Spelling it out ” for people so there is no confusion and/or surprises on the day of! 🙂

People should know that only the people who were addressed on the invite are the ones who are actually invited. If you follow this rule with your Save-The-Date Cards it could get your point across. With the adult only receoption wording, it wouldn’t totally be accurate. It would be best to spread this word of mouth.
We also did a cut off (college cuz only) and people who didnt have live in/engaged/hubby/wife did not get a plus one exteded to them (unless in wedding party) for the same reasons as you guys and everyone understood.
