I understand limiting Plus Ones when you have a 200 person wedding guest list at 100$ a plate.  But if this is a simple party at home or something fairly cheap, I would allow the cousins to bring dates.  It can be boring for young people to attend family parties, I think it’s a very nice gesture for you to allow it, if it’s not too much of an inconvenience for you.  It’s definitely not a must though, nothing for them to get insulted about.

Save worrying about plus 1’s for the actual wedding guestlist. If this is just an engagement party I’d let them bring dates.

@daniellemc:  I don’t think you need to ‘& guest’ for the engagement party.  Especially if this is a families meeting for the first time party.

I don’t think you need to add plus ones. Basically anyone you invite to an engagement party, you should also invite to your wedding. What you are doing right now is a private family affair, I think it should be family only.
