Make sure to just put their names. E.g. to David and Laura...
Definitely don't put something like "to the Smith family" x

If you put their names specifically on the invite (and obviously not the childs name)

We just put their names and then a little note in the actual invite to remind people that ‘Respectfully, this is an adults only occasion’ 👍

On the actual save the date or on the envelope?

I just sent normal save the dates and have enclosed a little poem with invites stating no children

We are only having our children and our 2 pageboys we have put it on invites most are happy to get babysitters. We are getting married in a tiny church and we couldn't fit our adult guests in our church along with children there too. Xx

You just put your names and the date on save the dates

Write on the envelope to 'name/s' would make it clear

We just put the names of the adults on the envelope. To be honest some have asked since and were fine when we said no children. A few were actually relieved/excited as they get a child free night! x

N.B plenty of time to find a baby sitter! 😉

Just addressed the envelopes to the adults and we have a website where we have put a note about no kids.

Although we do love all of your little cherubs we would request that our wedding remain adults only. So book a sitter and dust off those dancing shoes

Save the date and book a babysitter on save the dates.

This is an adult only event on the invites.

I emailed my save the dates and addressed the emails to just the adults. I have spoken to most of my invitees with children anyway (not wedding related) and mentioned that the only children at our wedding are H2B and my nieces and nephews. H2B has for the same for his invitees. All are happy to have a child free evening!
