Nope you are totally within your rights to not give her a guest.  At our wedding you only got a plus one if you were living together or married/engaged.  No exceptions.

i did the exact same thing!

No plus ones EXCEPT –

– engaged couples

– my cousin who is living with his GF

– and couples where we have a relationship with BOTH people

our wedding isn’t the venue to bring ur “flavor of the month”.. lol so we’ve been REALLY strict on that!

as well as no kids.. lol wish us luck.. invitations go out next week!

It’s totally fine, as long as there are clear lines…

i.e. only engaged and living together

Just don’t let lines blur 🙂 We’re doing the same thing with plus ones and kids.

I think it’s ok as long as there are other people there that won’t have plus ones. 

I might be in the minority here, but I think it is awkward/unfair not to allow a guest to bring a date IF nearly all your friends/relatives are married/engaged in a serious relationship and are therefore allowed to bring +1s . . and there are like one or two guests that have to go solo b/c they aren’t in serious enough relationships.

personally, part of the “tradition” of going to a friends wedding is the bringing a date part. i know we are all trying to keep our budgets down and all that, but its not too much fun if you’re the dateless friend sitting at a table with a bunch of people you dont know very well.  i know its stupid, but i know people who wouldnt even go to the wedding if it was going to akward wihtout their date.

we’re inviting a decend amount of friends, but rather than inviting everyone we know, we’re keeping our friends list down so we can accomodate their dates.
