I would not like to have any children at my wedding. How do I word that politely in the invitations?
Um, well, if someone shows up anyways with a baby in tow, I will not be pleased. I am therefore really trying to prevent that. Is stating "adult ceremony and reception" suitable?
I know families who would feel an invitation to them would mean everyone, not just the names on the card. Is it weird for me to feel I'd rather put something indicating there's no kids on the invite than actually have that stressful/awkward conversation explaining they can't being their children?
Yes, some people will feel this, but that doesn't mean that you should meet rudeness with rudeness. It is tacky to put anything about who is not invited on an invitation, so if your guests are clueless, you will unfortunately need to have that awkward conversation.
