follow link To have kids at the wedding or to not have kids…that is the question! If you and your fiance have decided to host an “adult only” reception, you can do so by addressing the invitation to the parents only (i.e. “Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Smith” rather than “The Smith Family”). You can also spread the message between close family and friends and ask them to share your wishes with other guests. Many couples choose to have a kid-free wedding and there is nothing wrong with that if that is how you choose to celebrate your big day!
