Ok, so I know there are many threads on the plus one topic. The “plus one” idea is relatively new to me, because growing up, I mainly attended South Asian (Hindu) weddings, and I don’t remember anyone being invited with a plus one unless they were married or engaged. Even attending family weddings when I was over 18, I was never invited with a plus one and honestly had no problem with it, and didn’t even think of the fact that someone didn’t invite me with a date. However, I know with western weddings, a fair share of brides and grooms invite their guests plus one. So south asian brides, out of curiousity, did you invite your single guests plus one?

When inviting family, I will be inviting the family of so and so.. or mr so and so and family. When I am inviting my friends they will def have a plus one. I don’t want them to be overwhelmed with my family and no outlet lol

For (South Asian Family) we didn’t invite anyone with a +1 but we are inviting boyfriends and girlfriends of the guests that we’ve met at other family occassions. I was invited to his family functions before we were officially engaged so it’s pretty standard.
For Friends (non and South Asian) we’re inviting people with a +1 if they won’t know anyone else or travelling a far distance. All people who are in a long term relationship are invited with their boyfriend/girlfriend by name. Really we’re only inviting certain groups as singles – like his work or school friends who will likely come in a group.
