Wow. What was your response to the crashing thing? How old is this person?

I would lie.  (I seem to advocate lies on these boards too often).

Just tell the friend that there literally won’t be a place for X to sit, but if there are any last minute cancellations she’ll be top on your list.

Then you can just say that nobody cancelled.

But that is SUPER rude.  I would have uninvited the friend for pulling something like that.

Wow! that’s just ridiculous. I suggest you tell this friend that she definitely can’t bring a guest and that this other friend should not show up at your wedding unless she would like to be escorted to the exit!

What a ridiculous response!  I think you (or FI) just need to be very firm about it and say "As much as we would have liked to invite everyone, our venue really can’t hold everyone and we have a lot of family members to invite and we really couldn’t justify inviting friend X over our extended family, whom we are dearly close to.  I really hope friend X will know better than to add stress, inconvenience, and rudeness on our happy day.  If she’s really that miffed, she is free to not invite us to her wedding in the future."

I think you can handle this one of three ways:

  1. Explain to her politely again that there is just not space at the reception to accomadate her guest and that while you would have loved to invited everyone to the wedding, it just wasn’t feasible.  Tell her once you have recieved all of the RSVPs that you will reconsider the situation.
  2. Work with your reception coordinator.  Provide a list of the guest who are and are not invited, and make sure only those who are definitely invited are allowed into the reception.  They should be able to do this for you.
  3. Give in, count another head :/  Not the best option but prevents arguments and a party crasher.

So sorry this happened to you!

Good LUCK!
