I just need to vent here…I feel like I made my Response Cards pretty clear. Here is what they say:
Kindly Reply no later than Sept 1st 2012
___# of seats reserved in your honor ( i wrote in the number of seats reserved for each person/family as we are tight on our list..not a lot of wiggle room for extra people!)
__(guest name here)____
___Wouldnt miss it for the world
___will be celebrating from afar
So I have received a few response cards and so far I have received 2 rsvps that they have 1 seat reserved and 2 are attending!..
how do I approach this?.. did i not make them clear enough?

I am guessing they want to bring a date. If you are not allowing dates (or only inviting long term partners) you need to explain this to them. And you can only really do this by talking, i.e. by phone.
If there are only a few single guests, you might be able to afford to be flexible. But if not, stand your ground, even if it means the person refuses to attend.

You could email them and say something like (this wording has been floated around on the Bee for some time now!):
“We were thrilled to get your RSVP, unfortunately we only are able to extend the invitation to you sans guest. If this means you are not able to make it, we understand and you will be missed.”

Give them a call or email, depending on their preferred mode of communication, and in a friendly voice say something like “I’m so sorry for the mix up, we can only accommodate the number of people we wrote on your invitation.”

Some people misread that 1 seat has been reserved as meaning 1 additional seat. You should call them and clear it up. Plus, you may find in some cases you’ve made an error and someone has a fiance or spouse or long-term partner that you really should be inviting.
