Tough one I know.  I think it is their mistake for assuming that just since they lived there they were also invited.  I would not be hesitant to correct them.

EEK. That’s 2 adults + a baby = $$$

I would perhaps correct it in a casual conversation with the bishop?

Yikes, that’s tough.  My cousin kind of did the same thing – got a STD and assumed she was allowed a guest and via FB invited one to our wedding..umm..yah, faux pas on her part.  I agree with caszos that it is her error for assuming that she and her family are invited, especially since the STD was addressed to her parents and not her. I would just explain to her that you guys didn’t know that she was living back with her parents and that while you’d love for her to be able to share in the celebration, right now it’s not in your budget to add people (or something to that effect).  It’s a tough situation, but she never should have just assumed that she was invited too.

Once the wedding invitation is mailed, addressed ONLY to the Bishop and Wife…and we even dictated on our rsvp postcards “we have—- seat(s) reserved in your honor”, this will cut down a bit on people just assuming and force them to call where you can then clarify.

I would definitely contact the bishop and explain the situation, I’m sure it will be fine – it was rude of her to invite herself anyway!

I’m sure if you let the bishop know that unfortunately space and money is tight because of the economy and the fire marshal, I’m sure he’ll let his daughter know that she isn’t invited. I wonder if he even knows that she thinks she’s invited…
