You've planned the invitation design, the invitation wording, and which stamp to use. Now there's just one more small but important detail that's critical for getting guests to RSVP - the response card. Here's advice as to what should a response card say, the etiquette of response cards, and other ways for guests to RSVP.

How can I politely word the RSVP to indicate that no children are allowed.

Romeo – The most explicit way is “Adults Only Reception.” But you could also address the invitation to just the adults, and include a separate sheet with information on local babysitters.

Judith – The sooner a couple receives an RSVP card, the better. It allows them to start seating arrangements, better estimate costs, and complete DIY projects.
