- Wedding: March 2014
Just as the title says, do people really understand addressing etiquette?
I had a conversation about it tonight with my FI and Dad about the guest list. I was trying to explain that Mr. John & Jane Doe means only John and Jane, but if it said Mr. John & Jane Doe and Family then the whole crew comes. They didn’t get it. Maybe because they’re men, but it really made me nervous.
I’m asking this because my assistant pastor at church is married and has 4 devil spawned children. I plan on inviting them, but not their kids. Not just because they’re awful but because I simply don’t have the space or money for them all. What do I do if they RSVP back for all of them instead of just him and his wife? How do I say “Sorry your kids aren’t invited” but not sound like a crazy bridezilla like my FI thinks.
I understand people are going to bring their kids even when they aren’t invited. But 4 extra children who need chairs (can’t sit in parents lap) and will be eating the food is a lot!
