- Wedding: May 2014 - Private Residence
Today I opend the mail box excited to see who may have RSVP’d and I was presented with a bit of a conundrum. Recieved an RSVP from FI’s Aunt and Uncle as well as their daughter, son and son’s Fiance. All well, perfect, everyone was invited by name. However, on the bottom of the RSVP it says “Likely adding 2 more, son’s FI’s parents want to come.” Worth noting that we’ve never met son’s FI’s parents, not even sure what their names are and they certainly were not invited.
We are in a fortunate situation where we’re getting married at a private residence so adding a few more to the guest list isn’t a huge hassle in terms of going over a limit but it does mean a few more people for food and alcohol. Do we tell them no or just suck it up and let them come? Help!

I would personally contact them and tell them that you will be unable to extend the invitation to their sons fiances parents.
You really don’t need to explain yourself on why. They were really rude to write extra people on there.

What the …. how can people think they can add extra random strangers to your wedding. I don’t get it. Say no!

I too, would just call them and say that you are really sorry but you will not be able to accommodate the cousin’s, FI’s parents. Just leave it at that.

No way in hell would I let that fly. I’d send an email saying, I appreciate you wanting to bring someone but no.
MAN that is rude!

lildolly011: Ridiculous that they had the nerve to invite someone who was NOT invited, but also that they RSVP’d “maybe” for the others!

Hell. To. The. No. How rude can you get? Call/email them and say that they get EXACTLY the number of seats that you reserved for them. Ugh. People.

Definitely a no! If you let one person get away with it, your opening a flood gate! These people have absolutely zero right to come to your wedding.

I would just call them up and tell them that there must have been a misunderstanding, and that you are not able to accomodate any extra guests. It really was inappropriate of them to even suggest it.

That add on doesn’t even make sense…like, in most add-on situations you can at least see where the person is coming from, even if it is rude. but son’s FI’s parents??? thats just out in left field.

Oh my…yeah that’s rude .I’d have FMIL/FFIL call and explain that these extra people cannot be added.
