How many groups of 3 did you invite? Maybe you can figure it out that way and then kindly let whoever it is know that their two friends aren’t on the guest list.

As a wedding planner, I see things like this ALL THE TIME. It’s like people just do not understand invitations whatsoever.  I’ve seen RSVP’s come back with more people than were invited, and sometimes even completely blank.  OP is right to be pissed, as this is very very rude and makes for an awkward and uncomfortable confrontation when you find out who it was.  I would ALWAYS number RSVP’s so if there is something wrong you immediately know whose it was, and can fix it quickly and quietly before it gets out of hand. I would just have your Fiance find out if it was his aunt and have a very calm and polite conversation saying that you simply cannot invite anyone IF you decide you truly do not wish for them to attend.  It’s your day.  They will just have to deal.

@s2bmrscook:  You can’t have invited too many groups of 3. That should narrow it down a fair bit. If it’s only a couple of groups of 3, just phone each one.

Oh my goodness, people are SO RUDE!!! You specifically said THREE not FIVE and they decided ‘nope, it’s our day so we are going to have whoever we want come with us’. GRR! I hope I remember to put the names on the RSVP when it comes down to sending out the invites for my wedding, I have a feeling FI’s family could do something similar if we don’t invite EVERYBODY.

Unfortunately, they will go on the list of people you have to call.   When they tell you about their fucking joke, you sweetly smile and say only 3 seats, sorry if any misunderstanding.  And then put them at the worst table you can imagine.

@s2bmrscook:  We got a no-name too! I was so flippin’ shocked when it happened. Seriously? Who does that??? but it was a not attending RSVP so it didn’t mess with us too much. We suspected it was from my DH’s side and so my DH called to let them know and try and figure out who is was not coming. and my Mother-In-Law (who is awesome!) sent out this mass email to her family reiterating to everyone to write their damn names on the RSVP. LOL! She was so annoyed and embarrassed!

So sorry this happened. The number attending is just ludicrous. What are the 2 not requesting seats going to sit on people’s laps or something???
