I'm getting married at a family friendly resort as we have a lot of guests who have small children and probably don't want to leave them behind for a week.
That said, I don't want children at the ceremony, nor the reception, and my fiance and I are going to pay for babysitting services for that evening. However, I have no clue how I word that on the RSVP cards. I was thinking something along the lines of:
"Your children are welcome to join us for the week, however for the ceremony and the reception, we will provide babysitting services for your children for the evening".
I don't know how to say it such that I don't sound like a complete jerk.
