Oh that is tricky.. in my option, you are inviting the couple, if you invite it to Mr & Mrs Bee then they are the only ones to be considered.  If Mrs Bee can’t make it then Mr Bee has the option to bring a different plus one (not two).. now if it said the Bee Family, that would be a different story.  Hopefully your guests repect what was on their invite.

I think this is definitely “Let it go” territory. It is inappropriate, but not wildly so. And also pretty rare. Let the guy bring one of his adult sons. I don’t see any harm coming of it, so long as they don’t start pulling crazy stuff like trying to bring extra people.

ETA: This is assuming the sons are polite people who you don’t have a problem with.

Based on the comments already being made, I’m not sure you’re going to be able to avoid crazy people, almost everyone has a poor guest ettiquete situation. Technically the people that the invitation is addressed to are the ones invited, people don’t seem to understand that though so for ours, we also put “we have reserved x number of seats” on our RSVP cards. We didn’t have much of an issue with people asking who and how many were invited.
