This is where the ___ of ___ guests comes in handy.  If you just want the couple to come then you fill out the second like with a 2.  If you want a single person to come alone, then you put ___ of 1 guests attending.

Em I’ve seen a few with: 

_ of 2 attending,

then to cement it I saw one with

‘Invitees only please’

on the bottom! I’ve never seen that before, so maybe someone else can say whether that’s rude or not!

I like “we have reserved ___ seats in your honor” printed on the RSVP card.

“Invitees only, please” seems like a bit much, but perhaps a necessary evil.

It’s not mean at all!  But yes, at a minimum, you have to invite married and engaged couples together, as these are “social units”.

You knw I had friends who did an invite then about a week later they sent this great little “newsletter” it was basically skipping out on a website (they chose not to do one). It explained what to wear to the wedding. The food that would be served. Where they were registered and also that their venue did not allow children (which may or may not have been true) but it worked. It was a simple while we would love to enjoy our special day with all of our family and friends the venue is 18 and over or something like that. It’s worth a shot . . . Their venue was a restaurant in Hollywood that turned into a bar later in the evening, I’m almost 100% positive that if they wanted someone younger to attend the wedding they could have so it was a smart move on there part to just put it back on the venue. If that’s not an option how about just simply saying adults only please on the invite?
