Isn’t it frustrating?  I’ve had to expand my head count about 30 people so far.

Ugghhh! I’m sorry! We sent an invitation to FIs aunt and uncle, addressed to just his Aunt and Uncle and got an RSVP with his aunt, uncle, their son, their son’s wife, their daughter and their daughter’s husband. Invite was for 2 people NOT 6!!!

If you told her no kids, I would phone & “clarify” again.

Ugh, how annoying.  I am already bracing myself for this with a few family members…  I would call and clarify that the invitation is for just the two you invited (no kids).  You might feel rude doing it, but as long as you are polite in expressing yourself, they are the rude ones for RSVPing for people who weren’t invited!

That stinks.

Did you indicate a seat number pn your RSVPs, if I may ask?

I’m with PPs, call and clarify. I’m really hoping we don’t get many of these.

@Willow1991:  Totally get where you are coming from, m’dear! I just posted a rant about this about a week or two ago. Same situation as you, except add an extra 3 years to the child. In my case, mom and dad are refusing to attend without the little angel, so two extra spots just opened up for me! We addressed it to just Mr. and Mrs. So and So AND it is all over our wedding website. I would stand your ground because otherwise, you are technically obligated to allow all the other nice folks with kids the opportunity to bring their little ones too. It’s all or nothing.

I understand your frustration too well! I am currently going through the same thing! It’s annoying and I do not understand why anyone would want to bring their kids to a formal evening wedding!

@Willow1991:  Your post describes exactly how I’m feeling right now! I don’t know why they assume that it’s ok to bring kids to a wedding. Your cousin has the right idea leaving them at home even though they were invited.
