Need wording advice

We are throwing a bowling birthday party for our 9 year old. The party is going to be a little costly for us but our son has not had a real party this will be his first. We want to make it special for him and have allowed him to invite about 25 kids. He is going to be passing out the invitations this week but I need suggestions on what to say in terms of "we are going to pay for the guest child but if you want to bowl you have to pay on your own". Do you have any suggestions on what I can write on the invitations that would not sound rude but make it clear to them that if anyone else comes they would be responsible to pay? Thanks for your input any ideas greatly appreciated!

  • We had photo invitations and inside the envelope attached a small note with directions, emergency contact numbers, and a small note that said the invited child will be provided with food at no charge any extra guest will be responsible for their own expences. Something like that. All of the kids showed up even a few siblings that brought along their money. Don't put anything like that on the actual invite, it is kinda tacky lol but make sure to attach a note along with the invite. Have fun!

  • *Please note that any additional persons attending other than the child this invitation is addressed to are more than welcome however will have to pay their own fees to play*

    it's not rude to let them know that IMO. It doesn't leave room for misunderstandings and THAT is courteous :)
