    @fingerscrossed:  I would. If I had to travel for a wedding I would like someone with me, but I’m the kind of person that hates traveling alone.

    Maybe you can ask who this person is. If it’s a partner then you would want them to come right? [An aside and no offense to PPs but I don’t understand why adults can’t travel alone so I don’t think that’s a reason to give her a +1 if you can’t fit one in. And I kind of think that bringing a random date to a wedding is like bringing sand to the beach.]

    I propose the +1 Request Response Team…we are all getting “Can I bring so and so who you probably don’t know and therefore didn’t invite?” from our families and friends. And none of like saying no to those we know. But I wouldn’t have any problem telling your friends no. So in exchange for telling your +1 Requests “no” someone else can tell mind.

    Good luck! I know it’s hard and frustrating letting people down. But it’s your wedding and you should celebrate how you want to.

    If she has to book travel, I would allow the +1 to keep her company.  I probably wouldn’t be so generous if she were local though.

    If the wedding’s far enough away that she has to travel by plane and she won’t really know anyone else, I’d let her have a +1. I know it’s not ideal for you, but I think this is a case in which it’s worth it.
