Thanks ladies! Most of our friends know they will not be getting an ''and guest'' option. Those that are allowed a guest, I will be calling them between the STD packages going out and when we need to get our address list over to our friend for printing - at that point I will be asking for the names of their dates so none of these g/f and b/f''s feel like I didn''t take the time to find out who they are.
I''m just worried some of my friends won''t understand that an invite in just your name means only you are invited. I have been spreading the word that we are limited so hopefully that helps.
I suppose when it comes up then I will deal with it. No use worrying about it now - I will only drive myself mad!

Hmm, these situations can be tricky... and i have been thinking about how i am going to handle this one as well! I think i have decided that I will be putting everyones individual names on the invites and if i am not sure of the name of someones plus one i will find it out beforehand, just so i can avoid having things like ''plus one'' and ''guest'', as this could cause confusion as to why some people have ''and guest'' on their invite and some people don''t.
Also i feel that if you say ''and guest'' that means they can bring anyone with them, but if you name a person then they are limited to bringing that person, and this may help with your numbers situation.
I also don''t like the idea of strangers coming to my wedding and by putting the individual names on the invites i can control that a little!
