What is the proper wedding invitation etiquette to indicate no children?

I definitely do not want children at my wedding and I want the invitations to express that nicely.

There is no polite way to specify this on your invitation. Address each invitation to specific people (i. e. "Mary and John Jones", not to "The Jones Family". When your reply cards come in, check the numbers confirming attendance and if a family includes children, simply call them and say you regret not being able to afford to include children.

This is a touchy subject, and the point is not to offend someone if at all possible. So a suggested wording would be, Please RSVP how many adults will be attending. This is subtle but hopefully pointed enough without giving any offense.

Address the invitation to Mr. & Mrs. (so and so). Then somewhere on the invitation make a special note that it is for "Adults Only. "

Just make sure the invitations' envelopes are addressed only to the adults. If anyone still RSVPs with children, call them and politely say explain the situation.
