I already have people who have invited themselves to the wedding and are now asking if they can bring guests. The problem is, most of my guests are going to be from out of town, so they don’t like to travel to a wedding alone probably, but we just can’t afford to keep adding people, how do you politely tell people they can’t bring a guest?

We didn’t have this problem until invites went out but our stock standard answer when anyone talked about guest lists was “we’re pretty limited for space” – which was true, our venue could only fit 100. Once invites went out and people asked, we would say we’d have to wait until we saw the RSVPs coming back. As it turned out we were able to say yes to those people bc we had more “no” responses than expected. That does of course mean there are at least 2 people coming to this wedding neither of us have met before – which I know a lot of people wouldn’t be comfortable with (I’m choosing to just not think about it)!

my stock answer to those who will be invited without a “plus one” is when folks send back negative responses i will let them know and they can bring a date, otherwise we dont have the budget or the space to have plus 1 for everyone…
