Yikes, I’m sorry people are being that way. I say anyone who’s invited with a guest gets to choose their guest. However, you should tell people who were invited without a plus one that it’s not possible to accomodate their extras.

we’re date twins! our rsvp deadline is tomorrow, and we still have about 50 or so unaccounted for guests, despite the fact that we self addressed and paid postage on the return envelopes. also just got one in the mail today that was addressed to an unmarried family friend and i was shocked that she had rsvp’d for THREE… to include her daughter and her daughter’s date. at this point i just have to laugh. not that i dont want these people there, but folks need to understand that i have to pay for each guest that attends (dinner, drinks, favors…) and it’s just so strange to me that people dont get that. especially people that have been married before!!! grrrr

You can do something about it.  Call the people who are adding on and say “I’m sorry but the invitation was only meant for those it was addressed to.  We’ve had to cut a lot of people we are close with and would prefer not to have Random Ex Girlfriend/your random date there when we’re excluding people we know and love.”  Those people were not invited, they do not get to come.  I know it sucks to be the bad guy but you guys are paying for this, they don’t get to bring random people when your friends are excluded.
