    Personally, I think “Adults” should be plural!  It would look odd to me if it wasn’t!

    I think “adults only” sounds better than “adult only”, so I wouldn’t change that.  However, if the placement is bothering you enough to reorder them, I would make it very small and put it as the second to last line on the card.  But then again, I’m not a fan of having that phrase on a reception card in the first place (no offense, I know a lot of people do it, it’s just not for me) so I personally would want to sort of bury it as much as possible.  But if these are the cards you have already, I don’t know that it’s worth spending an extra $100 to change it.  I’m sure no one will notice it or think anything of it.

    Honestly I think they look fine.  I feel adults should be plural.

    It’s supposed to be plural!

    They look great!

    @speulie- I hope you aren’t relying on that phrase alone to exclude those people (i.e. allowing some of those grand and great grand children to the ceremony but excluding them from the reception), because people will likely have different definitions of adult, and someone may think that their 16 year old kid is old enough etc.  Plus I assume that at least some of your generation are adults as well 😉  But I understand putting it on there for a little extra emphasis if you’ve already ensured that the kids names are no where on the invite and maybe done the “we have reserved ___ seats in your honor” thing.  Good luck, and I totally understand how it sucks to deal with people who just do. not. get. it. regarding who is actually invited!

    ugh, I hate that!  And what the heck, don’t they realize that it’s the dinner that costs money?  If I were her, I would totally call up those people who wrote stuff like that on the RSVP cards and say that there weren’t enough chairs, so unless their kids wanted to come and stand around, without a meal or chair, while everyone else ate, they better stay home lol!

    What I don’t get is, yeah maybe it was years and years ago, but most of these couples who bring their kids had a wedding themselves at some point- how can they be so ignorant of the consequences of showing up uninvited or without rsvping?  I think they must know it will be a problem, but just not care.
