Say no. You can’t accommodate it

“I’m sorry for the confusion, but unfortunately, we cannot accomodate plus ones, we’re on a very tight budget! We will understand if you don’t feel comfortable attending alone, but we hope you will come and celebrate with us! Just let us know if you can still make it”

I’m sorry, we don’t have the space for extra guests. I can’t wait to see you!

“I’m sorry, but we don’t have room for extra guests as we have a limited budget. We hope you are still able to come, but if not, we can’t wait to catch up with you soon sometime after the wedding.”

I would also get in touch as soon as you can – awful rude person that she is!

Some people are way too entitled for their own good.

Let us know how it goes!

I’ve been dealing with the same thing! I can’t believe how rude and entitled people are being! (And we’re date twins, and wedding-size twins!) Once I said, “Sorry, we invited 160 people, and only 148 fit in the venue, so we REALLY don’t have any space!” And the other time I said, “I’m sorry, we’ve only invited dates for people who are married, engaged, or in really long term relationships.”

As I said in another post recently: NO RING, NO BRING!

How rude! I was hoping “__ out of 1” would be a no-fail way for people to realize there are no guests allowed…but geez, some people! I would just tell her “I’m sorry, we have reserved ONE seat/meal for you and can not accommodate any guests”

@SoupyCat:  This.  Except I would leave out the “limited budget” part, only because I don’t think finances are the guests’ business, and you shouldn’t have to justify why you can’t accommodate extra people.  All she needs to know is that you can’t accommodate extras.

@soupycat and @les105

I like the wording of either just take out the part about the budget.  I agree with mrsotq that the budget is none of their business.

@mrsotg:  Oh yes, that would work too!
