Don’t you know the name of the guest from when you invited them?

If you didn’t follow the traditional format of including all guests by name, then I think you really need to contact each person individually and ask.

Also send out the family grapevines.  Ask relatives for the name of Uncle Jim’s new wife, or cousin Mary’s new partner.

If you don’t know the name of a date, and you feel comfortable asking the person directly, just write back a short note saying, “Great, Liz, I’m so glad you can make it!  (Groom) and I couldn’t imagine our wedding without you there with us!  I hear you have a new flame – what’s his name?  I can’t wait to meet him at the wedding, by the way!”

We only have 1 or 2 families that did this, so I just sent them a quick email saying something like

“hi Uncle Bob, so glad you and the family can make it to the wedding. We are so excited to spend our special day with you. Could you let me know if Susan and the kids are also attending? I just want to make sure I reserve enough seats. Thanks and we’ll see you soon!”

@deniselobo:  No one RSVPd with names of who is actually attending? Did your RSVP card not have a space for that?

I like Bostongrl25‘s suggestion for wording.
