I am hoping for an adult-only reception. We have a few friends who like to bring their somewhat out-of-control kids everywhere, even though their parents (the grandparents) would probably love to watch the grandkids for an evening.
That being said, I know it's rude to put "adults only" or similar on the RSVP cards. So my fiance and I were thinking of wording it something like this:
___ I will attend (1 guest).
___ We will attend (2 guests).
___ I will not be able to attend.
What do you think? Is that too much? Should we just drop it in favor of "____ number attending" or similar? (And yes, we're already planning on just putting the adults' names on the envelopes. I just know that some people won't get the message, unfortunately.)
I also do have one cousin that I think might have issues with childcare (can't afford it, often struggles to find someone), and I though maybe of calling her directly and letting her know that it is okay if she brings her two kids. I doubt that anyone would mind or care if she was the exception.
