Etiquette question here. FI and I will have been engaged 18 months by the time we are married.
We sent our save the dates out 8 months in advance because it’s a holiday weekend.
My question is one of the groomman’s and his long time girlfriend broke up about 2 months ago. I thought they would get back together, but it looks like they really are over.
The only reason we invited her is because she is was the groomsman’s girlfriend. Now it would just be strange because we aren’t really friends with her.
Should I just sent the invite to the groomsman’s with a “plus one” instead of her name?
Thanks for reading.

I would just give him a plus one. This is what we did for our groomsmen who are not in commited relationships. I doubt she would want to be there anyway after the breakup.

@Meant2Bee: When it comes time to mail the invitations, I would ask him what his preference would be.

@Meant2Bee: Yes plus one. I wouldn’t put her name if they broke up. She probably doesn’t think she’s invited anymore anyway.

His name, or his name and guest if you’re allowing one. Just because he had a girlfriend at the time you sent save the dates doesn’t mean you have to still afford him a +1 of whoever he feels like bringing.

I’d just invite him and a guest. He can decide from there.
