Okay so...we've decided not to invite children to our reception. So my question is.. would it be tacky if, on the RSVP card I put the following:
____ seats have been saved in your honor.
The line indicates a blank space, where I would nicely write in the number of people that I intend to invite. So, If i'm sending an invitation to a couple with two kids. I would write a "2" in the blank, to indicate to them that their kids are not invited (without actually having to say it).
The reason we are leaving the space blank is because we are also inviting families of three/four/five (a mother, father, and older children of 16 years old or older whom we wouldn't consider a child). In those cases we would write "3" seats have been saved in your honor. So, to avoid having to custom make three diferent types of rsvp cards we were thinking of having just a blank line where we could write in the number.
any comments or advice would be appreciated! Thanks
