Ugh yes! Between people writing extra people in on their RSVP cards and not receiving a single “no” yet with about half the responses back, is say I’m pretty fed up with my guest list too. There are going to be way more people there then we were originally thinking :-/

The guest list has been so frustrating!  Some people think they should be invited when they’re not.  We’ve had requests to bring parents, new gfs/bfs, friends…  It’s so frustrating, especially when our venue can only hold 100 people!  We added people in the beginning, until we reached capacity.  Now, we’ve just had to learn to say no, or ignore the comments!!

Honestly, dating for 6+ years and owning a house together is basically a common-law marriage.

Just tell cousin Nosy Nelly that the guest list is tight and maybe the family grapevine is an unreliable source of information – no, cousin’s girlfriend can’t come.
It’s none of her beeswax, so if you don’t want to say anything at all you can do that too. Just send an invite without a guest, and if they add someone, call them up and say sorry! can’t accomodate that!

Good advice, that’s exactly what I’d do.
