No children at wedding wording

A very common question I’m asked by my couples is show they can politely tell their guests that their wedding day is child-free without offending.

The best way to do this is by including it on your wedding invitation or detail card so you don’t have to have that awkward conversation in person later.

I’ve put together a list of cute / polite ways to request no children attend your wedding celebration.


We respectfully request no children under 16 at the reception.


To give all our guests the opportunity to celebrate without having to worry about little eyes and ears, we politely request no children.


This is a child-free event.


While we love to watch the children run and play, this is an adults only kind of day.
