I would assume people bringing dates would have a separate hotel room, and their guest would just hang out there while you guys were doing wedding things. I would definitely clarify it with your OOT BM though…she may assume since she was invited to stay at the house that he is also invited. I’d just check to make sure.

This is exactly why I talked my mom out of renting a cabin for the bridesmaids.  Every single one has an SO and I wouldn’t wanna seperate them.  Plus we’re having my lingerie shower about 2 months before the wedding so no one has to fly in early for extra events except the rehearsal/dinner.

I would check with the bridesmaids and make sure that they made arrangements for their SOs.  Also, could the plus ones possibly SHARE hotel accomodations?  That would save money for all of them 🙂

And having been a plus one of a groomsman, during the events us Plus ones would hang out together and go to a bar or something.  Maybe introduce the plus ones at some point and suggest they do that?  Also, are you inviting plus ones of the bridal party to the rehearsal dinner?  Just wondering cuz I’m doing that and I thought that was etiquette? (although I’m a firm believer in “screw etiquette” lol)
