Respect the hosts wishes and not bring extra guests.

Sounds like your SO didn’t actually ask Claire if extra guests were okay. Apologize to your friends for the miscommunication and respect Claire’s wishes.

Apologize to the persons you invited and tell them the host wasnt comfortable.

I wouldn’t bring them.  As the hostess she does the inviting. . unfortunately it sounds like your SO didn’t ask, just assumed.

lionessa:  I would say the host is completely in the right, and I wouldn’t bring extra guests.

Why would you find it appropriate to invite guests to a party you aren’t hosting?

Apologize to friends that you misunderstood the host. Make plans with the work friend for the next day.

Your SO is old enough to know better. You don’t invite extra guests to someone else’s party without checking with the host first.

I can see how it was a misunderstanding, easy mistake to make. Tonight consider still having this couple over, staying home, and having your own pot luck. The couple you mistakenly invited may have nothing to do now.

I wouldn’t go to Claire, because you did invite them already, so stay behind and have your own party.

lionessa:  I can see how it was a misunderstanding, but it’s a misunderstanding that could have easily been avoided by not assuming certain details and making a simple phone call. Just chalk it up to a misunderstanding, and let it blow over.
