    Yes!  Ok, so I actually DID write, “We have reserved ___ seat(s) in your honour”

    What I WISH I had written is, “____ of ____ will be attending” so all the single invites didn’t feel so obviously “HEY, SEE THAT S!?  IT’S NOT FOR YOU! YOU HAVE TO COME ALONE!” to me.

    Oh well, no one will care in the end.

    I did the same thing. No one noticed/cared (or at least not enough to say anything). Don’t worry, you’ll be scrutinizing them way more than anyone else. I also put the wrong last digit to our secondary hotel, but no one said a word about that, either 🙂

    I’m sure no one will really be bothered by your wording, and that things will turn out fine.  However, I personally am not a fan of any wording along those lines and have never actually seen that type of language (____ of ____ seat(s) have been reserved in you honour) on an invitation/response card except on WeddingBee.  I am just wondering when it actually became popular, since most of the bees now seem to use it.

    It’s all good.  Nobody will notice.
