No, no, no, no, no!

Do not accept this!

I’m sure the bees will have a better way or wording it, but you need to phone and say:

‘I’m sorry, but due to space constraints the invite was adressed to x and x. I do not have the space to accomodate the extra guests you have added on, I’m afraid it is just x and x.’


What is she actually thinking!?!?

And if it is past your RSVP deadline feel free to phone people up and ask if they are coming or not.

” Hi Aunt ___.I was so happy to hear that you and Uncle ___ are able to attend my wedding. Unfortunately, the size of the venue does not allow us to accomodate any extra guests.  I’m sure you understand. We look forward to seeing you both at the wedding.”

I think you need to talk to her.  Maybe since it’s your fiance’s aunt, could your FMI call and talk to them?  Then you don’t have to be the one to give them bad news.

If you don’t talk to her, that is a lot of extra money you would have to spend.

People make no sense to me some times!  I would do like the PPs suggested and just tell her no way in much nicer words

Blame the venue! I had people invite themselves via my facebook wall (no, not kidding), and I just gave the cookie cutter “Due to venue restrictions, we are unable to accomodate extra guests. We look forward to seeing X another date and celebrating with them at that time”. DO NOT let this woman create her own guest list- stand up for yourself!!!!! Have either Fiance or Future Mother-In-Law call them, you shouldn’t have to be the bad guy.
