    I think they’re kind of…….odd.  I would sort of be confused about why that little saying was there and it wouldn’t necessarily make me think that me, myself and I couldn’t bring a date.

    i think the safer way to go is to put how many seats have been reserved for them.

    First of all, I LOVE the design.  I think it’s beautiful.  My only concern is that, well, people might view it as – okay, thanks, I get it.  I’m not engaged or married.  I’m alone.  Thanks for totally pointing it out in a wedding response card.

    I totally understand the problem with people trying to invite uninvited guests.  And I realize that my comment isn’t all that helpful b/c I’m not suggesting a different way around your problem.  I just personally have a few friends that are single and are NOT happy about it.  I think that if I had used wording like that, some people probably would have been offended.  I actually only had one person try to add a plus one when we didn’t specify that a guest was also invited.  We simply let her know that we weren’t able to accommodate additional guests, and she was fine with it.

    Of course, you know your own guest list.  Just something to take into consideration!

    Ok first I think its really cool, I love the look.

    Secondly, when I read it I did a little motion like I just got a slap in the face. And the words “Ouch” rang in my head. I think you have a giant set of balls if you go for that. And YES they will surely get the point. lol

    Lastly, I do love that it is clear. Because I hate getting an invitation where I am not too clear on if its ok to bring a date and then I feel awkward about putting a +1 on the response in case that wasn’t intended.

    I don’t know….I think maybe anyone is who rude enough to cross out the one in “We have reserved one seat in your honor” will also be rude enough to write in another guest on this card, so I’m afraid that you aren’t going to completely solve the problem of the rude guest with the uninvited plus one, AND you are going to risk offending your single guests who would never think of doing such a thing. 

    Are you REALLY that worried that a lot of your guests are that poorly behaved? 

    I’m not saying  your card is a bad idea, I’m just not presenting another side, because I’d imagine 95 percent of your guests aren’t going to try to invite a plus one…and I’m just not sure it’s worth the risk of huring the feelings of the “good guys”

    i’m in the “The Graphics are Awesome but I’d Be Offended” camp as well.  I also agree with mssoonerbride that there’s always going to be a rude person who tries to push the boundaries and adds a plus one regardless.  might be worth it to just suck it up and go with the “we have reserved this many seats” route so at least you won’t risk leaving a bad taste in anyone’s mouth.  i have a guy friend who flat out told me he always adds a plus one and never thought about it twice.  guys are stupid. lol
