Birthday parties.

My son is having his birthday party at the planetarium, so we will have a really strict guest limit. He is inviting all of the kids in his class, 11 in total. My question is, because of the limit set by the location, how do I politely tell the parents that siblings are not included in the invite? I don't want to sound terrible but, we need to save room for our extended family members too. Thank you in advance!

I would hope people would know enough not to bring siblings along to a place like that that obviously charges per person.(sorry, it irkes me that people try to add in siblings and get mad when they arnt welcome) But to ensure this dosnt happen you could write  in the invite " Due to space restraints with this location, we cannot have siblings attend, thank you" or something like that.

I'm hoping the same thing but, you know how people can be. I was thinking about adding a small note saying, "Due to limited space, please RSVP for your child as soon as possible". Maybe they'd catch on and only bring the invited child?

I would just say "sorry, no siblings allowed"
