Honestly, I’m not sure it’s necessary. Almost all of my RSVPs have come back (all but 2), and no one added more people (and we specified if a date was allowed or not on the inner envelope). After hearing all of the horror stories on WB, I was thinking about doing it, but in the end, I’m glad I didn’t. It would have been more work, and if you’ve got someone who’s intent on bringing a guest who’s not invited, a little note isn’t going to stop them.

We didn’t do anything like this and we didn’t run into any problems either. An alternative option would be to write in the names of the guests on the RSVP card (Mr. and Mrs. John Smith / John, Suzanne, Erin and Jason). This should get the point across without being so blunt.

We did this, but it was easier because we printed our own invitations. I think you’ll be fine without the printout.

Best wishes to you!

 We just put who was invited on the inside evnvelope we have only run into one person who was not on the inside of the envelope who is coming and that was our error we totally forgot a cousin!! But otherwise it pretty much evens out for us. We had one family say all 8 were coming, but the same day we got 8 regrets so it evened out!! I don’t think it is necessary to put how many seats are allotted unless you are really tight on budget and/or space.
