You’ve decided not to invite children...
Whether your decision not to have children at your wedding ceremony and/or reception is made from safety concerns, budgetary reasons or simply a personal preference, it should be respected by family and friends. But, how do you communicate and make your wishes known? Most agree that it breaches etiquette to have “No Children” printed on your wedding invitation. Less negative alternatives include “Adults Only” or “Adults Only Reception” type of wording. The best alternative to making your wishes known—is by word of mouth.
Another great option is to allow your mom and wedding party to spread the word for you.
Additionally, you should use double envelopes to communicate exactly who is invited.
