CoastieWifeToBe:   I’ll join you in the rant.  

We have three guest-invited guests.   It isn’t the added cost, it’s the whole feel of the wedding – my FI and I are both shy and we felt very strongly about only inviting people we already knew.   I hate the idea that there are guests we will both be meeting at our wedding.

@julies1949 – +1 !!

I had not one but two guests decide to add on their own guests…they were not invited with an “and guest”. We allowed it but anyone that heard this said how disrespectful it was to assume without even asking if they could do this (they are not family nor my best best friends so we were taken back by it not to mention that they both know each other and others that will be there- not that they would be alone).

CoastieWifeToBe:  I’m with you- it has been making me CRAZY!  I have had people ask over text and facebook to bring a guest (to be fair, one person is dating someone and I didn’t know it, but I see the other people frequently and they are not!) and another person just wrote in a plus one.  For the person who just wrote it in, it’s a guy in our group of friends and we knew he was kind of seeing someone, but she never really came around and all the friends are invited, so it isn’t like he would be bored.  I conceded and said okay, only for him to tell me that they broke up, then was like, “I guess I’ll just bring my sister.”  My head literally almost exploded.  No, you don’t get to sub in your sister (whom I’ve never met) when you weren’t given a plus one to begin with!  AHHHH!  

Basically, I feel your pain.
