That is so frustrating!  I’m sorry!  Are these people that you can approach and blatantly say NO CHILDREN

I seriously don’t understand this. Never in my life had I imagined that people were so ignorant until I started reading posts like these on here. I am scared to have to deal with this whenever I get married!!!! I don’t think you could’ve been any more clear but people STILL don’t get it. What I would like to know is, are people really so oblivious and ignorant to etiquette rules or do they just think that you should or would want to make an exception for them??? How ridiculous either way.

Just say something along the lines

“Due to limited space inour venuse we are requesting adults only”

 

That is my story and I’m sticking to it!! We are doing adult ceremony and reception

Not to be a PITA but some people a. might think hey ill throw it on there, the worst they can say is no (not thinking the stress is causes the B&G) or b. they are just that oblivious…

Were doing an adult reception as well… Ive already told our cousins a head of time… so there wont be surprises when the invites do go out…

Okay now I’m feeling ignorant (I clearly haven’t been invitation shopping yet)…

What does

__/__ can

___/___ cannot mean? 

I mean, I know what can/cannot means, obviously, but why are there two lines and a slash next to both responses?

@lezlers: I think it’s for 1/2 can come and 1/2 can’t come. The the second line is always for the total number of seats reserved so they can say how many out of the reserved seats can & cant’ come.

@lezlers: She’s intending it like 1 / 2 or 1 out of 2 invited guests. I’m not sure if she filled in the total or left it up the invitees, I’ve seen brides go both ways!

EDIT: oops! looks like KatNYC2011 beat me to the punch! 😉

My best friend just got married and she had this exact same problem. I am definitly not looking forward to RSVP time….

She ended up giving in because it was mostly close family and friends….but she had trouble deciding to let it go!

I hope it all works out for you!!!
