I’m going over our guestlist and thought I ordered more than enough invitations. FMIL just added more and more people to the list and now we’re short. We are inviting BFs of our cousins, which we are also good friends with, should we just include them on their GF’s family invitations? Help!

Hmm, I would probably include a note with the invitation that says something like "Jenny, please feel free to bring Jeff". He doesn’t live with them, so doesn’t really make sense to put his name on the envelope. Just my opinion.

Why not take this as an opportunity to try out your DIY skills? Make some cute, extra invitations by just buying some cardstock and some good quality, smooth, heavier printing paper.
Decide what size you want your invites, maybe an A7 (5×7) so there’s no extra postage cost. Trim that. Run the printing paper through your printer, then trim to about 1/4 inch smaller than the size of the cardstock you’ve decided on. Paste on top of each other. Get some ribbon or embellishments, or something dimensional, and tada!
You can make it match the rest of your invitations you originally ordered or make it different.
Have you sent any out yet? If not, send the cute DIY invites to VIPs or those just having moved out of their parent’s homes and then send the rest to the others…Or send the DIY ones to your cousin’s BFs as a "special" invite 🙂 and to show your "appreciation of your friendship".

If your cousin is not married, she will be included with her parents’ invitation. I think your cousin’s boyfriend will also be included in that invitation.
If you guys are all close, you could informally mention to her to bring her boyfriend, too!
That is what I plan to do – for a family of 4, I am going to let them know I am reserving 6 seats for them (which will include the 2 gf).
