Can you do it by cutting out dates/plus-ones that are not married, cohabiting, or seriously dating?

I would allow every person over 18 to bring a date. 

 

If you have to cut 4 people do it, but don’t cut dates…it is not fair to expect someone to come to a wedding alone.

Cut dates. Your guests aren’t coming to the wedding alone – there’s 34 other people there!

(Also: they’re family, it’s not like they don’t know each other. Jay-sus on a stick)

Any chance some people will say no? Maybe you could have a B list?

I agree with cutting dates. I’m not a fan of not allowing them when it’s a huge group of people, but your cousins will be with all family. I think they’ll understand.

Also, the odds are that at least a couple of people will not be able to come.

imo, if the guest isn’t married, cohabitating, or engaged and knows a lot of people that will be at the wedding, you can cut the date.
