@trugem: Did they just write then number 12? Or did the put 12 names on the response card? Maybe at first they thought 1 could come, but then they both could and forgot to scratch out the 1?

Let us know how this pans out!

Call them – ask for clarification.  If they confirm they indeed RSVP’d for 12 (or more than you invited) then apologize for the “misunderstanding” and tell them that unfortunately you are only able to accommodate (whomever you invited) and that you hope that THEY can still join you.

Good luck and please provide an update!

Wow.  Can you imagine if they actually did mean 12 people?  That’s straight up ballsy!

Good luck! I hope it was just a mistake!

I agree to just call and ask them how many people they meant to write down.  I’m hoping it was a mistake and like PP said, they just forgot to scratch out the 1.  But if they didn’t just explain that you’re sorry but you don’t have space/budget/means to have all twelve people.

You definitely need to call for clarification.  If they did put 12, you should ask politely tell them that you only have 2 spaces reserved for them.  12 people at my wedding would up our total bill by a TON of money (extra table, linen, centerpiece, chairs, plates, silverware, food, beverages)–

Mannn I really hope that was an error on their end because if not I’d retract my entire invite. That’s just rude. Lol

Wow… I’m seriously hoping that was an error!  Who tries to bring 10 additional guests?!  Let us know what they say!

WHOA – that is a lot of people!  They can’t honestly have meant to put 12…that seems ridiculous!  Hopefully, it’s just a mistake.

Wow, if they are really RSVPing for 12 people, they are NUTS. That’s beyond rude!! Even rude people would think that’s rude!

You NEED to call asap, but I’m sure they messed up and only two of them will be in attendance. I can’t even think of ten people my fiance and I would want to bring along with us to a wedding! LOL

lol they can not have really meant 12. They probably mean to cross out the 1. or maybe they are playing a joke on you (not funny!)

Oh my. Is that a new record on the Bee for RSVP add ons (on a single RSVP)?
