Our reception location just doesn't have the room to accomodate a huge group, so we decided to have an adults-only reception. On our invitations, we added in a line that said:

Number of adults attending___

This way, we were able to let our guests know gently that children are not invited. To be on the safe side, we're expecting some people to just not realize the not-so-subtle hint and bring their children anyways, but most people understood. Those who knew their children were invited (nieces, nephews, godchildren) just wrote something like "plus 2 children" on their RSVP cards.

This is probably the most tactful way to let people know.

i think you can just number the amount of seats you're reserving them on your rsvp. i think its obvious if theres 3 children but only 2 seats are reserved
