I’m sorry it is going to giveyou more work but I think it’ll cause confusion if you leave it as is.  How many people you are actually inviting isn’t something you want to leave up to interpretation.  If someone thinks you didn’t invite them to bring a guest or their family, they may be offended.  You don’t want people calling you to ask either. I’d redo the outer envelopes.

I agree I’d redo the outer envelopes.  Sorry 🙁

Ugh. So frustrating. Honestly? I would leave it as is. I think having the "2" on the RSVP card makes it clear enough. But I also see where the other ladies are coming from. Good luck!

I would leave it as it is unless there is space to add ‘and family’ or ‘and guest’ on the envelope.  If you have extra envelopes I would consider redoing envelopes for anyone with less than obvious situations of who is invited. 

My RSVP deadline was yesterday, so I know from recent experience that people don’t really read the envelope or invitation well and will RSVP for whoever they ‘think’ is invited.  And that’s if they RSVP at all.

If you can: add "and guest" or "and family" to the outer envelopes.

Or, just leave the outer envelopes and add inner envelopes.

It would be best to make it clear.

I’d redo them…. I think that the __ of __ might be confusing for some people, especially since you kind of had to explain it to us in this post. Good luck!

I would suggest re-printing the outer envelopes. It may take a little extra time now, but may end up saving time in the end. You will have less guests contacting you directly in the end.

I don’t know if you already printed the invitations yet, but instead of printing the names on the invitations, you could also make a belly band around the invites and get fancy labels to print out their names on the band. I don’t know how your invitations are, but that’s what i did ( I had a similar issue) and received tons of compliments on how they looked.  Don’t know if this helps or not…

I’d suggest a belly band, redoing envelopes, or nothing at all.

 I didn’t have inner envelopes for my invitations, and of 100 invitations sent out, only 2 RSVPed more than was invited (which was cleared upby a quick email explanation), and 1 was unsure.

I think if you leave it the way it, most people will get it, and you’ll likely have to field some questions.  You could change the outer envelopes or not, depending on how you feel like handling the followup.

Have you printed the outer envelopes? If you don’t want to redo the inner envelopes, I would just forget them and make sure the outer envelopes are correct.
