Put this on the RSVP cards.  “_ seats have been reserved in your honor”  And for her, you’d insert a 1.  That combined with the envelope being addressed only to her (no “and guest”) should get accross the hint.

But if you’re planning to gvie her a guest, there really is nothing you can do to keep her from bringing the ex-wife.  It would be her guest to select, no matter who she may choose.

This is an awkward situation, when sending the invite make sure to only write Mrs. X on the envelope, no guest. Heck, make her a special invite that says, Dear Mrs. X, YOU are invited to our wedding…….etc.

Make it clear that the card is addressed to one person, that being her.

Good luck!

I got an invitation once that had an insert that said something along the lines of we are excited to share are day with you and you will be surrounded by many friends and a family so please just come by yourself, you won’t be alone.  They said it much more poetic but I thought it was a nice way to say dont bring a guest and they were right I knew a lot of people at the wedding and didn’t need to bring an unwelcomed or unknown guests

I wouldn’t depend on the invite to get the message across, your FH needs to tell his x-mom-in-law that it would be inappropriate to have her daughter, his ex-wife there.
