Welcome to the Hive!

I wouldn’t put anything about it on the Save-The-Date Cards.  I would just address it only to the parents then take care of additions when the invites go out and the response cards.  I would simply put on the response cards ” ____ seats have been reserved in your honor”.  If the question comes up inbetween, simply tell them that you are limiting the guest list because of venue space and you are very sorry you wish everyone could join you but that it is just not possible.

Totally agree w/ Tksjewelry. I would also explain that seating was limited, and as a result none of teh cousins are invited – just so it doesn’t sound like “Just your kids can’t come! Sorry,yo!” Hopefully they’ll be understanding. Happy wedding planning – hopefully this is the only even slightly problematic issue you deal with!
