 I know a lot of ladies on here have put on their RSVP cards something along the lines of: "1 seat has been reserved in your honor" and then have them reply with their answer. Though some people may just disregard that. lol. I've heard some crazy stories! Hope it all works out. If somebody asks you if they can bring something just say the guest list needs to stay at a certain number and only they attend

I agree with Uhlease, you could just put the number of seats reserved, and for those that you know are in a solid relationship you could include the names of both guests.

 That is a good idea. That should clear it up and help.

Agreed. Address it to the individual you want to invite and include some wording about the number of seats that have been reserved - just be prepared for not everyone to listen to that and for some to show up w/o having RSVPd and for no-shows who did. It's about the most stressful part of planning IMO but if you go in expecting a few headaches it won't be nearly as bad :)

 Oh my word I am soooooooo glad someone else feels the same way! We decided that we are only inviting those who are engaged and those who don't know absolutely anyone at the wedding to bring a plus one !

 Since we are mostly inviting familt=y and are only sending out between 40 and 50 invites we set our food count to 100. This will include everyone, and we will have a kids food section separate from the adult buffet. Hopefully people abide by our rsvp cards and do include everyone who they are bringing so that I can have a final headcount in the end.

you kind of have to look at it from your friends perspective too. I knew a bride who didn't invite the bf of one of her bridesmaids, while all the other bridesmaids bfs attended. It was a huge slap in the face for her and if that were to happen to me, I would be pretty hurt. 

 

a few years down the road, would it be more important to you to have a few extra people attend your wedding that are no longer in your life? Or that your friends genuinely felt that you cared about them to welcome them and those important to them into your life?
