    Address the invitation to those who are invited. If they add someone on the reply card, contact them to advise it is an adult only event. 

    ETA: I feel like this is a spinoff joke from the last one but I answered it JIC it's not.

    You'll never be subject to a cash bar, gap, potluck wedding, or b-list if you marry a Muppet Overlord.

    If you think your friends and family are etiquette idiots, refer to Step 1. 

    If you DO NOT think your friends and family are etiquette idiots, refer to Step 2. 

    If you want to insert something in your invitation, refer to step 3. 

    1. Spread by word of mouth that no kids are invited. List only the parents name on the envelope. Either fill in the names yourself on your RSVP card, or list the number of seats reserved on your RSVP card. Call and clarify with anyone who still rudely tries to write in their kids. 

    Example: 
    2 Seats have been reserved in your honor. 

    Bob Smith __Will Attend ___ Will not Attend
    Sarah Smith __Will Attend ___Will not Attend

    2. Spread by word of mouth. Address the invitation only to those actually invited. Done and done.

    3. Tape fruit to your crotch. Take a picture of it. Add that big red circle with a line through it. Add the caption, "No fruit of your loins invited." Insert copy of picture into each invitation set. 
    I love the "No crotch fruit option"! LOL

    At this point, there are no words.
