You may be interested in holding a wedding reception for adults only and get ready to show off your sexy reception dress. However, here is the problem, is it rude to ask the parents to attend your reception leaving the children behind with a babysitter? What is the best way to let them know your idea for the adult reception?

Well inviting would be addressed to mr and mrs. Or mr and guest. Generally unless it says and family then kids are not invited. With that I woud put on the RSVP card that it's an adult only wedding. Me its your wedding so if you don't want kids then do be it.

unless a wedding invite specifically had my chidlrens names on it, or said "and family" i would assume that they were not invited

Lots of people have adult only receptions. I would specifically say it somewhere on the invite or else some people may show up with kids anyway. Even letting them know sometimes people still bring their kids.

Thanks MamaLacey for the awesome PR siggie

Agree, I would let them know by putting in on the invite.

BTW, welcome to the board! I noticed both of your posts have been wedding related, are you getting married soon? Do you have a LO born in July or August 201? Tell us about yourself.

**Thank you Bokkechick for my awesome siggy**
