You may also want to include info on babysitting services at the resort if you are inviting anyone with kids. That way they are more inclined to come.

My main advice is that you have to be firm with people because they will start asking about this and if you budge once, your screwed!! BE STRONG!!
On my outer envelopes I was very informal and used first names so "Jane and John Doe" - Carolina's is the proper formal way.
Everyone that knows FI and me knows we aren't kid people and I've specifically told the few people that have kids that this is a child free event.

but that's what happened!:-)
The invites we sent out were clearly addressed to X and X...
We got married at Secrets Maroma, which is adults only, so I think many people realized their little children couldn't come as soon as they looked into the resort...
However, there were some people who had grown children who just assumed the whole family was invited...which they weren't... (* we wanted to keep our wedding SMALL!:-))...
My MIL had to call them to clarify...(since these guests never told us their plans, but did mention it to my in-laws...)
Anywaaaay, point is, it IS a good idea to somehow make this clear...whether it's on the invites or your website.... b/c you may be surprised at how many people ASSUME they're invited, when they're not:-)
(I know I was :-))
