@lina010:  

Yeah people can suck. You were very clear…but some people just like to assume they get a +1 or can bring their kids- Like I said, people can suck.

You’ll have to call them and kill them with kindness and make it clear who was invited to the wedding.

@lina010:  Wut. I don’t think that it is confusing, it is rather clear. Ugh. I’m sorry.

@lina010:  we had this issue with our rsvps. i even received one back with a check and no name/initials.

after that happened, my moh told me that she marked the back of her rsvp cards with that guest’s initials. i wish we did that.

i know it feels like the rsvp process is so pointless if you have to get in contact with people over the phone anyway. i looked at a few people a little differently after going through that. good luck!

I think your RSVP’S are clear and very well written. However, I had to reread them twice to really understand what i would have had to do. Then, I got it.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr all these details with the wedding. Now, I’m wondering if my RSVP’s are ok.

All I did was ask to please confirm by April 12th, 2014 and please indicate your name and choice of meal.  I don’t think i could have made it any clearer but then again we never know.

@eecuadrado:  ok and are you still leaving it up to guests to write in their names? That leaves it up to them to interpret. For meal choices, what’s your age for kids meals?  I don’t recall what I was eating at 5, but I was ordering NY Strip at 6 and my parents were happily buying it for me. If a child guest picks an “adult meal” are you going to call them up or surprise them with chicken fingers at the wedding?

@CurlyCue:  Oh the invitation I’m putting everyone’s name so there is no confusion as to who should be rsvp-ing; so we’re not putting the Smith family we’re putting the actual names and our guest list is literally all family and two friends, under 50 guest. Up to 12 for the children but all the kids invited are close family and I have spoken to all their parents about the children menu because I wanted to come up with a choice they would all eat. They all agreed on chicken fingers.

@lina010:  No, I don’t think you can get much clearer.  

Unfortunately, looks like you’re going to have to call or write these people, apologize for the “misunderstanding” and let them know that only X are invited and that you won’t be able to accommodate extra guests but that you hope they will still be able to join you.

@lina010:  well ya know, sometimes I can’t make it to an event so I like to send a representative on my behalf to tell me about it later. Preferably someone who looks and acts kind of like me, so you get the full experience as if I were actually there. That must be what your helpful guest is trying to do Tongue Out

I think you might have over complicated it, you told them how many seats but then let them write in who’s coming. 

You’re going to have to call these people and let them know kids aren’t invited (or whatever the rule is) and clarify with them.
