hey bees I need you to put your heads together and help my find a way to word my invitations
so this is the situation, my husbands side of the family are very much party goers so much so that they invite their own friends to certain events they shouldn’t …and obviously I don’t want party crashers at my wedding especially since there is limited seating.. in most cases it would be fine to write on the RSVP card
will be attending______
will not be attending ______
___ (#) of attendees
however for me I want to put a cap on it like:
this invitation is limited to _____ guests
and then write how many
I don’t if that will be honored but I want a way to make it really clear that if I address the invitation to mr and mrs that does not include your brother inlaw, your kids, their friends, and your mother
and at the same time I don’t want to offend anyone so please bees help me assemble a RSVP card that will make it clear that. I want mr and mrs not the whole family or If I do say family I don’t mean EVERYONE related to them

I’m printing up my own invitations and doing the same thing. Some people have kids that we dont want come cause we’d rather not cut out adults to accomadate children. Others are just Mr. and Mrs. with 18 to 20 something year olds that we dont know that well so we wanted to make sure they knew it was just the mr and mrs.
I was thinking of wording it like this:
We have reserved a seat for ____ in your honor.

We used this:
We have reserved ____ seat(s) in your honor, and filled them in for each individual RSVP.
We also had the traditional wording, with these options.
___ Accepts with pleasure
___ Declines with regret
When not everyone was going to make it, which only happened once, the family just filled in the Accepts/Declines with numbers. Example: 2 Accepts with pleasure; 1 Declines with regret. Everyone else just checked one.
