What do you think the best way is to tactfully and politely let people know that- the people listed on the invite are the people invited…if your boyfriend can’t come, you don’t bring your random friend or parents in place of them, etc.??
Obviously I think it’d be sort of tacky to put it on the invitation or rsvp card…I could put it on my website but I’m not sure how to word it without it sounding kind of ‘bitchy’ andddd not everyone looks at the website, or looks at it in enough detail to read everything on every page.
Suggestions? What are you doing??

Why don’t you only use people’s names on the invitations, instead of +1 or "and guest" so they can’t fill in random names?

@LonePalm10 Yeah that’s def. a good idea, the only thing is that with a few people, I’m not sure of their SO’s full name or if they have/will have one. Guess I’ll need to do some investigative work? lol
@Chela429 Good idea! I bought the Target invitation sets – so there’s just the main envelope and then a small envelope for the rsvp card…would it be tacky to put both names on the front of the main envelope?

Krgk84, I dont’ think it’s tacky. Just remember each name has its own line:
Miss Jane Smith
Mr. Tom Jones
### Any STreet
Anytown, NY #####

I also have the target invitations…what I am doing is getting matching ribbon and wrapping it around the invitation. I’ll seal it with the clear address labels with just the names of the invited on them. It’ll act as my "inner envelope since I don’t have one and it’ll be clear who is invited.

krgk, it’s perfectly okay to ask your friends the names of their SOs before addressing envelopes. I’m fairly certain that every for every wedding I’ve attended in the last two years the couple emailed either me or my FI to ask the for the spelling and full name of the other of us. I don’t know what stage you are at, but we have an Address Form that we referred people to on our save teh dates. We include a field for your SO/Spouses name. This isn’t necessary, but if you really only want to include SOs that you know, I htink directly asking for their names and writing them on the invite is the way to go.
