Ok, here is my dilemma. I have some friends who don't know how not to bring their children places. I adore their children, however, a wedding is not the place to bring them. I want the parents to have a good time. I am fearful someone might bring their child along to the wedding, although I am really hoping they have some common sense. I already ordered my invitations and did not include anything about it being adult only. However, on our wedding website, it does indicate adult-only reception. I do plan to address both STDs & invitations to Mr. & Mrs. only. I am planning to include an insert with the invitations that simply says "for directions, and hotel booking information, please see our wedding website" and give the website. Is it tacky to include something there about adult only?
My other issue is that I do plan to have our niece & 2 nephews as part of the wedding party. However, I am trying to figure out care for them after introductions at the reception. Our niece will be 6 at the time, one nephew just over 2, the other almost 2. Our venue is an exit away from the hotel we will be reserving room blocks at, about a 10 minute drive. So it isn't an easy option to hire a sitter for them. For our one nephew, the other grandparents live a good hour & a half away, so it isn't an option for them to watch him. For our niece & nephew, the other grandparents are about 20-30 minutes away, so it is an option for them to pick them up & take them home.
Any feedback is welcome!
