Children are not invited to the wedding: This is very difficult indeed and again should not be mentioned on the invitation. Invitees should actually realise that if their children aren't mentioned by name on the invitation then they're not invited but they probably won't. Friends of the bride and groom may not appreciate that you don't look on their little darlings quite as they do but be firm. Friends with children should be telephoned and politely told that children cannot be catered for. If they are offended, then that's unfortunate.
What rules should I follow when adding color to my wedding invitations? _ There are no "written in stone" rules when planning your wedding. It is your wedding and your invitations, and you want to choose an invitation that expresses both you and your fiancé's personality and the atmosphere you plan for the wedding. Whether you choose bold or subtle color, vibrant ribbon adornments or delicate lace edged ribbon, the invitation is uniquely yours. While there are suggestions on how to choose color for your wedding invitations, do not allow yourself to get stuck into a rigid template for how your wedding invitations should look.
