No, it’s not a huge faux pas.  It’s pretty standard that if a person’s not in a serious relationship, you just invite them.  It’s very generous of you to extend the invitation to his friend.

no its not a faux pas. If a person isn’t in a serious relationship they don’t usually get to bring a plus one. you and Fiance have done the right thing in telling him a plus one is welcome to come to your wedding.

having said that though…..he is on a holiday with all his family so I don’t think he will be too lonely……his comment to his mum probably had more to do with him reflecting on his lack of relationship prospects at the moment. Wedding as fabulous when your in love but can be a bit of a downer when your not!! Laughing

Personally, I think everyone attending a destination wedding should be given a plus one.  It’s one of those exceptional situations in my mind.  I know that not all of the brides on the Bee agree with me, but I feel like if you’re asking guests to travel, you should give them the option of bringing a companion.
