The extra cost comes into play too if we go over our #s because it will be like 11 extra people if they all come and bring guests....Let me know what everyone ended up doing!
My case... I am staying at an All-Inclusive resort and don't expect a tremendous amount of guests, so the non-married friends and family I wrote Mr. XXX and Guest or Ms. XXX and Guest. If we were having to pay per person for our wedding dinner from 1-XX, it would probably be a different case.
I know some girls have told single guests to room with other guests if they want but they really didn't have it in the budget to give a +1 to everyone and they didn't feel it was right to pick and chose who could and couldn't, so rather than hurting anyones feelings they really wanted to keep their wedding to close friends and family.
