Call them and politely tell them they were not invited with a plus one, let alone plus two and they will have to come alone or not at all as you do not have room for all three. You are sorry but that is how it is. Try to be polite.

I’d be fuming too. Screaming probably.

Some people humbly phone to ask if it’s OK to bring a guest, because they aren’t etiquette masters and genuinely aren’t sure if you mind or not. That’s OK and you can politely say no sorry space doesn’t permit. A person who writes in an extra knows full well you did NOT want to offer a plus one and is aggressively forcing one on you, in my opinion. You can still take the high road and do what they should have done, politely make a phone call to say sorry, space doesn’t permit.

One of our guests has invited a friend (uninvited), who in turn is bring 9 of his friends along. NINE. We’re in Asia so I guess this is kind of expected, but we’re not having a traditional big wedding and actually only invited about 70 people. I’m anticipating to have over 100 turn up (have planned for 120 just incase).

Well damn, 2 is ballsy as hell, aren’t they?

I understand your position bee, i wouldn’t be cool with someone who I don’t consider a friend at all being there, especially if there was a crush at some point. 

Call 1 up “Hey I think there was some miscommunication, the invite was only for you, (one person) and I noticed that some else added on your card. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate anymore guests. We only have one seat reserved for you and cannot accommodate your guest. We understand if you will not be able to attend, and we will miss you.”
