Perhaps rather than having “adults only,” do inner envelopes with the names of only those invited?

I don’t have a problem with someone saying “adults only” – but if you put it on the invitations / reception card you really can make NO exceptions for anyone.

I think I’d word it ‘Adult Reception Immediately Following’……

I think the “adults only” thing would confuse me more than just putting the names of the people invited.  If I saw it addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Smith- I would assume those are the only people invited.  However, if I saw “adults only reception” I would start to wonder if they intended to invite the children to the ceremony, but not the reception, you know?  Plus I’ve always thought “Adult Reception” sounds like your reception will be XXX ;).  If you really want to drive the point home, I would do the “We have reserved ___ seats in your honor…” wording on the response card.

I want an adult only reception, too, but felt bad wording it that way (my cousin did and took a lot of heat for it).  We decided to get the point across with our RSVP cards and we put a number of how many Guests the invitation was for.  For example: “We have reserved two seats in your honor”.
