When it comes time for the reception you want all your guests to have fun and leave their inhibitions at the door. Which leaves us with this question, how do you politely tell your guests with young children that you will be having an adult only reception?
To make adult only attendance a success, you have to use proper wording on the invitations. When you send out your invitations, address it to the adult attendees like Mr. and Mrs. Smith. On the invitation itself include each guest’s full name to make sure it is specifically addressed to whom you want to attend. Be sure to discuss the adult only reception with quite a few family members in case any attendees with children have questions regarding the adult only policy they have someone to clarify the invite with.
