Our space is limited and we have exactly the amount of people we can have at our location. We did not address the invites "and guest" and also stressed this NOT a plus-one wedding because the dinner is $25 a head, only holds 150 and I'd like to know everyone attending and not have random people show up.
Problem is: people are asusming their boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, cousins, sisters, brothers and family are invited and are sending out VERBAL invites or posting things on Facebook like "We're so excited for your wedding"....But "they" are not invited.
How do I polielty tell people that they cannot bring a random guest and not to feel bad if they're whole family/friends/boyfriend/girlfriend isn't invited?
Also--do you all think it's tacky to invite college friends/work friends to a bridal shower/bachelorette party, but not invite them to the actual wedding?
