HELP! Wording for invitations for only 2 people and their names are required.
How do I let people know they absolutely have to RSVP because if their name isn’t on the guest list, they aren’t allowed to get through the gates at the venue? Also, how do I let them know the RSVP is only for 2 people?
Is this being rude? The venue only holds 160 people. We sent out 90 STD and since then, the guest list has gotten bigger. People are asking to come and our parents are asking us to invite other people.
Also, can I mention if they RSVP and later realize they can’t come, to let me know so someone has can get their spot?

@babygirl0526: I would address it to Mr. and Mrs. So and so (if it’s a married couple) and on the RSVP card, give a RSVP by date (if you dont hear by then, call them up to get a firm answer), and say something along the lines of “2 seats have been reserved in your honor.” With a place below to write their names and check food choice, if applicable.

Your invitations should be addressed to the names of the people who are invited.
Your response can say We have reserved 2 seats in your name.
You will likely have to follow up by phone or email when your RSVP date has come and gone, like most brides as there really is no way you can make people respond.
If you are using a wedding website, you could include information about the guest list and security in the FAQ’s.

Thanks ladies. I will add that 2 seats are reserved. I will also follow up with the people who doesn’t RSVP by the deadline.
