I think it’s fine. I bet she’ll understand!

I think it’s fine too– I hope she understands.
It’s not a “bring all the random people you can find” sort of event. It’s a “we invited you because we love/ care about you” sort of event.
I should think that’s fairly obvious but some people don’t get it. I hope she is the type that does get it.

I would drop everything starting with, “And not just some random people we don’t know.”  I think it’s unnecessary with what you said beforehand!

I would shorten it a bit and take out a few phrases that could be taken the wrong way. I wouldn’t mention “at the risk of sounding like a bridezilla” because you’re totally not! This wording sounds less annoyed to me 🙂

One other thing I wanted to mention. I know it is amusing to watch the kids fight over the invitation 🙂 , but I have to ask that none of them bring a guest, please. We invited your family because we want you guys there, but if one of you can’t make it, we’d rather not have people we don’t know in their place.  We had to cut out a lot of family and friends from our lists to keep to our venues around 100 limit. We could really use those spots for people we know and care about!

Really like  “rolling berry” suggestion!  Well worded.
