@Almy_al:  It seems that they are adding kids to the guest list.  You’ll have to call and explain they were not all invited.

@Almy_al: 8 people? That’s madness. How about you saying something along these lines:

“We’re really sorry, but due to budget constraints we only have you and such such down for our wedding. We consider you a really good (friend), and hope that this doesn’t discourage you from coming.”

Good Luck!

funny

I didnt include number

it was either accept or decline

I specified another note to friends requesting no guests(if they were married or engaged they were both invited) because I only had a small party of 60, they understood

@Almy_al: It’s a couple without kids and they want to bring 3 other people? Who are these other people? So weird!

Call them and tell them there has clearly been a misunderstanding. People do not get to invite whoever they want to your wedding.

Yikes! This is the one thing that I am definitely stressing over. When I send out our invites I am definitely going to put “We have reserved 2 seats in your honour” on the RSVP card. Hopefully that will squash any “extras” from trying to tag along.

my favorite is when they respond but dont put names on it – that happened to me a few times. oh great 3 people are coming – not sure who though!

im so sorry this happened to you! the audacity of people these days – i would not dare bring univited guests to a wedding, just my husband and me (no kids yet, and even at that i would get a babysitter, even if kids were allowed)

Oh no no!  That is why I put the number of guests attending because people do not use common sense AT ALL!  I would definitely be calling those people and asking them exactly who they are bringing.  I would clarify this is not an open invitation.
