I think a lot of people make the rsvp cards say something like “__ of X [pre-filled] will be in attendance”

Etiquette suggests that you dont put the girlfriends name on the envelope and guys are suppose to be smart enough to figure that out :). To be safe, nn the RSVP, you can put ___ of 1 guest will attend so it is clear they are not being invited with a +1. I have also heard of brides filling in the number so it says 1 of 1 guest.

We did ours like this:
“We have reserved ___ seats in your honor” I filled in how many, then for their response I put:

“___ of 2 (again, I filled this in) will attend”

So that way they can write “2 of 2” or “0 of 2”

Hope that helps 🙂

We’re probably going to just put the name with a check box for “accepts” or “declines,” no extra spaces involved. Minimizes the BS, I think.

I have the same fears, we opted not to manipulate the RSVP cards and hope for the best, but in the event that this happens, we will just have to call and explain.

We did only online RSVPs, and set the site up in such a way that people just got to note “accepts” or “regrets” with regard to those who were actually invited.  However, there is really no way to keep at least some people from begging for a plus 1.  You just have to be firm with anyone who tries.

Write the guests names on the rsvp card.  I did that an didn’t get any extra guests.
