@undercoverjoan:  What the what?! It is not YOUR responsibility to find these people sleeping places! You have enough to do with the hosting of the event. 

Any way to get in touch with the early arrivals, to let them know that the party will not be starting until 4pm, and could they please arrive then, not beforehand.

I would be snarking at family/friends left and right that are inviting extra people. “we were trying to keep the guest list reasonable! argh!”

I’m so sorry 🙁  good luck!

Ugh, I feel your pain!

My FI has this annoying habit of always inviting people to ‘stay over’ whenever we have a party at my flat…and I really hate it!  My flat is only one bedroomed, and being 45 I’ve long outgrown having people sleeping on my floors!  On a serious note, I’m bipolar and have severe anxiety problems, which manifest mainly as night time panic attacks and night terrors.  I really don’t want anybody who doesn’t have to hearing these…

We were supposed to have a party for my 45th but I cancelled it a week before because I just couldn’t face it.

I’d be blunt with those who are expecting you to put them up, tell them that the inn is full!

What!!! Are you actually letting all these rude people sleep over? That’s very presumptuous of them. You are completely within your rights to just deny that, they can deal with their own accommodations. Some people!!!
