One fool-proof way to have an adults-only wedding (+ invitation wording!)

How can I make it clear from my invitations that while I love kids, I don't love them at my wedding?" As usual, my recommendation comes down to being proactive instead of reactive. Instead of making it negative ("How can I say 'NO CHILDREN ALLOWED'?"), simply pick a venue and time that support adult-only activities. In other words, have a night wedding at a 21+ venue like a bar or lounge. There's nothing like an 9pm ceremony and a dude checking IDs at the door to keep the kiddlets away.

Skip the drama when addressing wedding invitations

I can't handle addressing these wedding invitations.

Everyone says I should address it to "Mr. & Mrs. Man's-First-Name Man's-Last-Name" but it pisses me off — addresses like this completely blow past the female component of a relationship.

Any ideas for how to be true-to-self without trying to make an in-your-face statement?
