    I would assume it would be just those two, but call to be sure.

    I would assume just the two of them, but I would follow up!

    Just call and ask.  It’s not tacky.

    That’s horribly ambiguous.  Unfortunately now you have to call 🙁

    It’s not unfortunate.  Thank them, tell them how excited you are (first card, etc) and just make sure you want to know what they meant to keep track of numbers (i.e. you don’t have a preference).  For others, who have yet to send invitations, I’ve seen RSVP cards that include a space for the number in your party.  It clears it all up.

    I think it’s better for you to clarify with them. What if you make a wrong assumption and get unpleasant surprise on your wedding day?

    i’d just give them a call and say ‘got your RSVP card today, so excited to see the 4 of you at the wedding’ they’ll tell you if you’re wrong!
