We worded our response cards like this and had no issue.  If they weren’t coming they simply put zero.

You may get some people who try to add a guest but then you just have to call them and tell that that unfortunately you cannot accomodate their guest but you hope they can still make it by themselves.  People will know to just write 0 if they can’t come.

They will probably either just call or put zero on the line

Having “Number attending___” could mean you get a lot of extra write in guests.

People already try to do it on invites that are very clear (for example –  __of 4 attending) so I imagine you’ll have to let people know somehow that they can’t bring guests.

If you write the names on the envelope, they should know that’s who is invited.  However, you will get write-in guests no matter what. 

If I got that in the mail, I might have to ponder for a minute, but I think it’s easy to come to the conclusion to put 0 if you can’t make it.
