I would say that they are welcome to enjoy a vacation in Texas but you’ve only reserved one (or two) spots for them. AKA – no rando’s allowed.

 Tell them you don’t have room. I’m a big fan of every adult getting a plus one but a plus two is crazy!

I would not be ok with that.  This is a personal event that celebrates you and your husband’s love, not someone’s weekend getaway.  explain that you have budget and capacity guidelines to keep so unfortunately, they cannot attend.  

moreover, as the extra person, I would feel awkward attending a wedding i wasn’t invited to and i dont know the bride and groom.

@lolaswann:  So true about everything you said.

Why would they think your wedding is a good excuse for their get together? This person has obviously never planned a wedding. Maybe they can get together before or after you wedding and use that as excuse to be in the area together.

@ambereyez:  It’s rude she asked, so there is no reason you can’t give a straight answer.  “Unfortunately, we can only accomodate invited guests.  I hope you can still make it to the wedding.”
