Ask Abby: How Do I Let My Guests Know This is an Adult Only Wedding?

When hosting a wedding, the guest list can be one of the hardest parts! One challenge of the guest list is whether or not you are comfortable having children at your wedding. If it's a casual beach affair, it could be an easy decision. However, if you're planning a black tie gala, kids may not be a great idea.

The easiest way to approach this is to include on your invitations if this is a kid friendly event. You can include a note saying that as much as you love their children, due to budget or space issues, you cannot have children at the wedding.

Ultimately remember that this is your wedding and most parents will understand and probably be thrilled to have a date night out!

If you have a flower girl and ring bearer but still want the reception to be adults only, you can always ask their parents to take them home after the ceremony. Because how cute are these kids?
