Well, unfortunately it would be inappropriate to say, “Please don’t bring anyone else!” on the RSVPs, although I’m sure more than one bee has wanted to, lol.

If the problem is that they RSVP for more people than you invited, then the most straightforward way to imply who IS invited is to just write in their names in for them on the response card. If they have the audacity to write anyone else in, then you can give them a quick call to explain that you can only accommodate the people whose names were originally on the invitation.

If they don’t bother RSVPing for the extra people and just show up with them, all you can really do is have someone play “bouncer”. If this is the case, your best bet for avoiding having to turn anyone away is to use word of mouth and have your parents (and any other family members who’ll understand) subtly spread the word that you cannot accommodate any additional guests beyond those you have invited.

make your response cards say ” 2 spots have been been reserved for you” and make it clear that way?

If its adults only, make sure to put “adult reception” or something along those lines. Address the invitations only to the people you invite. Perhaps have a “no or yes” part on the card they can circle or check off. My friend had this problem, she just let people know that the venue could only hold a certain amount and they couldnt accomidate anymore then who they invited.
