I am not sure that this belongs here but here goes......I have never heard of people just adding others to the RSVP card and spending your money at their leisure. Last week, I received a RSVP where the invitees decided that they were just going to expand my guest list. I have to write a letter denial acceptance of this ill behaved invitee. Our facility has a (100) ATTENDEE MAX. They never called and asked if it was okay...they told us that they are bringing this additional guest. Tell me what you think....
RE: We Dear :
It has been brought to our attention that there is some confusion surrounding the invitation for our wedding. We have received several inquiries on how the invites were addressed. Unfortunately, to secure our venue and date of choice, we had to contract the reception facility for a maximum of (100) attendees. Due to this fact, we were not able to extend an invitation to all of our family and friends.
This has been a very difficult decision for us. Each invite was addressed for a maximum of (2) adult guests and forwarded to the individual(s) that the invite was intended. If your invitation was addressed to Mr. & Mrs., we had only intended for these (2) adults to attend as the invitees and in your honor, we reserved (2) place settings for you. If your invitation was addressed for you and a guest, we had intentions for you to attend with (1) guest and once again, we reserved (2) place settings for you as well. At this time, we have extended invitations for all (100) seats that have been allotted to us by our venue and we are unable to extend any additional invites.
If we receive any declines or invitees attending without a guest, we will notify you at your request that additional seating has become available. We apologize for any misconceptions and/or miscommunication. We thank you in advance for your understanding and look forward to seeing you on Our Special Day! Sincerely,
