I’m having a crazy dilemma about the RSVP’s that were returned to me. Some of them are missing names, for example: It says Mr. and Mrs. John Doe and family, it also show the food choice with no other names. I decided that calling 450+ guests would get me all sorts of crazy so is it bad that I might just put John Doe, John Doe 2, John Doe 3.
Is it bad formation to do that?<br /><br />Thanks!

candyxx: You can call them whatever you want on your spreadsheet or list for your caterer, but if you are having assigned seating, you will need their names for a seating chart, escort cards and placecards.
Many venues ask you to indicate the menu choice on the placecars, but if you can’t straighten that out, it’s easy enough for people to speak up to the waitstaff (it just takes more time) or exchange meals amongst themselves.
