Call them up and say “Due to the maximum capacity for our venue we are only able to accomodate the guests the who were named on the invitations. Unfortunately, there is not enough room for (feel free to list the names of the uninvited). I understand that this might mean you are no longer able to attend. With this in mind, is your RSVP for (insert names of invited) still a yes?”

ETA: None of the plus ones are spouses right? (As in someone’s husband, wife, fiance, live in boyfriend or live in girlfriend.) Couples should be invited as a unit, so the additional guests might be people who you did not know were in serious relationships. If possible, I would make room for those guests (husbands, wives, fiances, live in boyfriends or live in girlfriends.)

@asscherlover:  +1!

It’s going to be an awkward phone call, but you would think that people would know by now, the people whose names are on the invitation are the people invited and no one else!  Your going to have to school these ingrates, politely….and some of them might get a little miffed, but if they wanna play the +7 game, just let them now they’ll be splitting two plates of food 😉

I agree with @asscherlover:  and @Nona99:.  You will need to call the guests and clarify who is invited and politely, but firmly, explain that you simply are unable to accommodate any extra guests.

WTF 7?? Wo the heck are they bringing? Yah, definitely call and tell these people. It will be awkward but they are the ones in the wrong for blatantly ignoring the invited names.
