    We’re a long ways out from our wedding, but I do know (somewhat) where you’re coming from.  My Future Mother-In-Law invited some people that live across the country to our wedding two days after we were engaged.  We hadn’t even made our OWN guest list yet.  Needless to say, my advice to you (and what I’m probably going to have to do with my FMIL) is to reply back to your grandmother saying something along the lines of, “All of our invitations have been sent so anyone who hasn’t recieved an invitation wasn’t supposed to recieve one.  We’re trying to keep the wedding to close family and friends and didn’t reserved seats for Bill and Sandy.  I appologize for any miscommunication as to who is invited and who is not, however once we recieve the RSVP’s, I’d be more than willing to let you know who’s attending!  Love, msashleymarie”.  Though, I could be wrong.  🙂  Best of luck, I feel for you.

    • Wedding: April 2010

    We had a small wedding where we invited spouses but no dates or other “plus one”s. All of my BMs were aware of this and on board. Then one of them started dating a guy about 6 months before the wedding and within 2 weeks she was talking about how great it would be for him to meet everyone at the wedding…. So I reminded her of our wishes and the conversations we’d had.

    Try to nip problems in the bud. And if someone invites people that aren’t on your list, make it their job to explain their mistake.
