I’m just waiting for one of those to happen! We got one person asking my FI if he could bring a date … even though the response card clearly says “We have reserved 1 seat in your honor.” He’s not in a relationship, he has no one in mind, he just wants the option.

Of course, FI didn’t ask me if it was OK before he told his friend yes. GRRR.

Rule number one about guests is that if you make an exception about one person, then you’re going to have to make it about everyone. I would be very adamant, no matter how unique the situation. If you’re not allowing children under say, 12 years old, say that. I would have the excuse of “Our venue does not allow under a certain age” or something to that effect. Yes, I did visit a few venues that had a certain age limit because of fragile things or whatever reason. 

Sorry you’re dealing with this sweetie! The guest list is one of the most stressful parts of the wedding, I think.
