tell her you wish you could accomodate everyone, but you can’t! the invitation was addressed to her, and her only. it’s pretty rude & classless of her to just expect she can show up with someone and not have it be an issue …

Contact her and explain that you had to draw the line somewhere and that you are not able to accomodate her guest.

Yeah, unfortunately you need to nip this is the bud sooner rather than later. I hate these situations because they’re so awkward!

But yeah, just send her an e-mail or something and just say, “I’m so sorry, I would love to see/meet your friend, but unfortunately we’re just not able to accommodate everyone we’d like to.”

You can always say that you’re having a very intimate wedding/mostly family/you’re at the capacity limit for your venue and you just can’t fit her in. Sucks that your friend put you in this situation!

I had the same situation and one of my friends told me to have my Mom make the call, since the invitation came from my parents and that way it’s not personal. My Mom handled it for me, she told her she was sorry that we couldn’t accomidate her friend because we have to stick to a certain number of people and if we had cancelations we would be sure to let her know. It worked out perfect my friend never mentioned it to me.
