Are you thinking of an adult only wedding? Here are some do’s and don’ts to assist in your planning:

Considering this is your Big Day, you are more than allowed to set your own rules – and this includes whether or not your guests come with their children too. Yet, while it may be perfectly acceptable to have an adult-only wedding, there are still some important things you should keep in mind:

• First and foremost, don’t write “adults only” on the invitation. This can be quite offensive for some of the guests who may choose to simply not come at your wedding. Instead, write this information on your wedding website – or, if you don’t have one, ask your wedding party and close relatives to share the information with the guests.
• Secondly, create RSVPs that make it very clear who is invited at the wedding. Simply writing “Mr. and Mrs.” on the RSVP will let most of the guests know that they are the only ones invited – and not their entire families.
• Furthermore, please keep in mind that it is not OK to make exceptions. Compromising for one family will make the other guests feel uncomfortable and less important to you (which may ruin the experience of the wedding for them). However, do remember that it is perfectly acceptable to have a Flower Girl and a Ring Bearer even in an adult-only wedding. After all, these are traditional members of the wedding party and guests will understand why you have invited only the two of them.
