‘No Children’ wording ideas for invitations
This is the one question we get asked the most! How do I tell my guests I’m not inviting their kids?
So to save time, trying to delicately find the right words, we thought we’d put together some ideas and suggestions on how to respectfully tell your guests that their little ones are not on the guest list!
Whilst some parents may leap and punch the air at the idea of a day, an evening or in some cases a whole night off, away from their children, is a gift and a great excuse to let their hair down, have a drink and dance the night away, others may query why their whole family is not invited.
So here are you go, a few phrases we’ve used that we know work and either excite your guests or soften the blow.
“We respectfully request no children at our wedding celebrations. We hope you understand and can still join us on our special day.’’
‘’Although we love your little ones, this is an adult-only affair.”
“We love your kids but thought you might like a night off. Adults only please!”
“The bride and groom request that this be an adults-only reception, thank you for your understanding
‘’We are very sorry, but we are unable to extend the invitation to children. We hope you understand and can still join us on our special day.’’
