I would ask if he’s asked the second one yet. If he has not, tell him no. If he has, I would just let him bring her since he already had a +1 to begin with.

Do you have two people in mind to ask? Do you care if they know they were on the “b-list?”

TBH I think you should let him bring someone else. He got a general +1 so I think he should be able to change it.

I would think if the second guest was offered an open +1 he could bring whoever he wants.  If his guest was named, it would be different.

Have you already paid for your final count? We weren’t allowed to change our count two weeks out, so we just filled in our last minute cancellations to keep food from being wasted. One friend brought her roommate! So, if you’ve already been locked into the 120 count, I would tell him to bring the second date.

@LucyLaLa:  Yeah, I’d just let him bring her, then.

@LucyLaLa:  well at least he’s asking. give him credit for that and let him bring the date. 

we had one switch-out situation. my coworker’s husband double booked himself and while she was brow-beating him at the dinner table with friends, her best friend piped up and said “i’ll go in his place, ya know, if it’s cool with the bride.” coworkers asked me and i told her as long as she doesn’t mind grabbing his placecard, then that’s fine. the seat is paid for anyway.
