Our school only allows so many guests per student. I would like to send announcements to all our family. We do not have enough tickets for all aunts and uncles to come. How do I word note for inside announcements/invitations so no feelings are hurt?

Many thanks for getting in touch.

I think this is a nice touch. Your note could simply say something like:

"Unfortunately we have only a very small number of tickets for the Graduation Ceremony. This means only immediate family can attend. We would love to have invited you since you are an important part of (the graduate's) life."

Of course you can add that the recipient is invited to a party or other celebration if that is the case.

This is a first draft. Let me know if it works for you or you would like me to provide some alternatives.
