if they are not invited and if there is no assigned seat for them then they need to leave

dont feel bad for them – if they show up its them being rude

… I’m more worried about one of my coworkers that we are NOT inviting showing up and crashing, probably drunk. He’s a terrible human being and we’re definintely not inviting him, even though we both work with him 3-4 days a week. But he’ll still get mad, even though I’ve basically TOLD Him he’s not invited.

Well one way to TRY to avoid this situation is to specify on the RSVP cards the number of seats reserved for the person. So, say, if you’re inviting John and Jane Doe, you have a line that says we have reserved ___ seat(s) in your honor, and then write or stamp in “2” on the card yourself. If you’re inviting Joe Schmo with no date, then you do we have reserved ___ seat(s) in your honor and fill in “1.”

People will inevitably cross out the number and write in something else, but at that point you know they are trying to bring extra people and you either call, email whatever or have someone else do it and basically say sorry we just do not have enough space to accomodate guests.

THEN, if Joe Schmo still shows up with a date, he knows he’s not supposed to have brought a date TWICE over and said date has to leave.
