Thanks E hell
« on: November 22, 2014, 06:28:17 PM »
My boyfriend and I are discussing marriage but nothing yet is certain expect we want to however we have shared this news with close friends and family. I already got a "may I bring a guest to your wedding on top of the plus one you are trying to budget for" my reply was "Dear Friend, I am afraid that we are limiting our numbers to what we can afford and while nothing is set in stone I know we won't be able to accommodate your request."
How did I do?

I think you did great. It's pretty nervy to ask for TWO extra guests.

Pretty good, but I think it might have gone over better if you phrased it  "Dear Friend, I am afraid that we have to limit our numbers to what we can afford and while nothing is set in stone and for that reason we won't be able to accommodate your request."

So, no excuses (what we can afford) and no raising hopes that things might change (nothing is set in stone).
There is no 'way to peace.' Peace is the way.
