- Be specific with your decision on the invitations and the wedding website. Do not assume guests will know what you mean if you only include the wording “number of adults attending” on your RSVP card or add “Adult Only Reception” to your invitation… or both for those who may not get it the first time!
- Some guests may be offended by the no kids rule and say they won’t be attending the wedding. Be polite. Simply respond by saying “ We understand. Please know you will be missed.”
- Send out invitations in a timely fashion so parents can make arrangements for childcare.
- If you plan on including children of immediate family or friends in your wedding, it is a great idea to make an exception. Invite those children that participate in the ceremony to the reception in order to thank them for participating. They don’t have to the entire time but seeing them dance at the reception will be priceless.
- If you and your groom have your minds set on having no children at the wedding, don’t let anyone change your decision. It’s your day!
