I know according to some this topic has been beaten to death but to those of us who are newly engaged, it is a new topic so.......
After many weeks of stomach turning contemplation over how to present the "no children" option at our wedding-mostly because of seating/budget concerns, partially because of ceremony disruption concerns- I have finally come up with some wording I am happy with. Since I never came across anything I felt good about on any of the boards, I thought I would share my verbage in case someone else is still struggling. I will post the following on my wedding website and direct everyone to my site for directions to the venue via my invitation. I also plan to add "cocktail reception to follow" on both my STDs and my invitations.
Hope this helps aleviate some stress for others.
In an effort to include and accommodate all of our family and friends within our seating capacity, we have opted to celebrate this day with adults only.
