    I read a post the other day where the (estranged) father invited 11 extra guests!

    I had this exact same thing happen to me. I invited a family friend from my husbands side to our wedding. When we recieved the RSVP back it was for 7!!! She had invited her married children! I was floored and mad. Then they didnt even come to the wedding at all which made me even more upset. I consider this extremly rude.

    i have been very blunt with people, screw etiquette that says i need to ‘hint’ and politely ‘imply’ how many guests are invited. i told them that because i am only having a disney Escape wedding, i am only allowed to have 18 guests and we have already filled it. i said that if they want to bring other people or (for those who can’t come) invite themselves, they can fork over the money to upgrade my wedding to a Wishes wedding (no guest limit).

    That is just crazy and rude. I can almost see adding 1 person but 5!!! 

    We haven’t had any of this happen, but still have lots of rsvp’s to get back.

    Yeah, I really don’t understand when people do this! Especially with adult children- etiquette says that if a child has moved out, they get their own invitation. So, if you *were* inviting them, then they should have gotten their own invite! 

    We had a few “write ins”… The most frustrating one for me was from DH’s parents. They just included his sister’s boyfriend on the RSVP without asking. The thing is, had they come to me and said “Hey, is this ok?” I would have been fine with it- she was a Bridesmaid or Best Man, they’ve been together for over a year (they’re 17, but still), and their family helped pay for the wedding. 

    But, it just irked me that they didn’t bother to check first! 

    We didn’t have any huge write-ins, but there were several small write-ins that still irked me…
