Make sure your adult only wedding is a success!

Your wedding is a very special event for you – so naturally, you are allowed to set your own “rules” for the Big Day. What do you do when you want an adult only wedding, though? How do you pull this off without hurting anyone’s feelings?

We have gathered some etiquette tips you should keep in mind – so read on and find out more.


  • Don’t write it on the invitations. Writing “adult only” on the invitations may feel offensive for some of your guests who have children – so avoid doing this at all costs. Instead, ask your wedding party members and close family to spread the word about your wedding. Also, you can definitely write about these rules on your wedding website (if you decide to have one).
  • Don’t back down. We highly suggest you clearly specify the names of the guests on their RSVP (e.g. “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”). This way, most guests will understand that their children may not be invited. However, if you receive any questions about this, make sure not to back down and hold your grounds. You have already taken this decision and making a compromise just for some of the guests may make the other parents feel like they are less important to you.
  • You can still have a Flower Girl and a Ring Bearer. In the end, these are members of your wedding party and it is perfectly fine to invite them at your wedding. If you want to make sure nobody gets offended by this, you can talk to their parents about the possibility of bringing them just for the ceremony.
