I'm new to the forum, so this is also a 'hello'!
We are having a pretty informal wedding reception, mainly outdoors (weather permitting!) A lot of our friends are coming a relatively long way to the wedding, and although they will all know people at the wedding, we thought it might be nice to give them a plus one (presumably someone we won't know), so they have a friend to travel with. Our numbers are now quite high, so I wondered whether people thought the following would be okay:
Invite these friends alone, but pop in a slip to say that if they do want to bring someone, to let us know. That way, hopefully they will assume they can't bring someone automatically, and hopefully will keep down our numbers! What do people think? Is it too rude?!
