Remove the no extra guests that is very rude.

I am confused- are these the invites or the RSVP cards? Because as RSVP cards they are super confusing- they do not allow you to RSVP! It is like a mini invite. If they are invites then they leave out all the important information (time, date etc)

Honestly I still find it confusing and a little bit rude (even with the no extra guests removed). If it was an actual RSVP card that I could send back (or email/call back whatever) then I thinnk it would be less rude. The reason I find it rude is because it is kind of like damning them before they have even done anything. Most people know that an invitation is only addressed to those invited so if you address the invites to those invited then all should be ok.

Are you getting guests to RSVP at all? If so wouldn’t they tell you how many from the family were coming? You could just let them know if they say 6 instead of four that it was only family invited (as in no BF/GF/+1’s).

Also with the 4 seats saved option you could still get GF’s/BF’s coming along. Say Mary, John, Rob & Mandy were invited from the Smith family- Maandy can’ make it so Rob is bringing his GF- still 4 seats. If you are ok with that then cool but if you want to restrict non-family from the wedding then it will be tricky!

Could you do more of a

“A seat has been reserved for the honour of John Smith, Jane Smith, John Jr Smith and Jane Jr Smith.”

That way there would be no switching if John can’t come so they want to invite their neighbour, but it would also insinuate that you would only expect four to show up.

I really think you do need an RSVP portion to make it clear. Something like…

 

“A seat has been reserved for the honour of John Smith, Jane Smith, John Jr Smith and Jane Jr Smith.

___ of 4 guests will be in attendence.

___ of 4 guets are disappointed they will not be able to attend.”

@JenRoses:  I think you have a winner! If someone crossed out a name and put someone else’s name underneath (which is the only way to “add” a name), it would be easy enough to say “I’m really happy you are excited to come and want to share it with Sally Stevens, but unfortunately there was no seat reserved for her.”

@takemyhand:  Agree- that looks really good and my confused brain can understand it!
