I have two friends who I really want to invite to my wedding, one is married, one is not. I am not close with either of their significant others, and am trying to get my guest list down some. Is it necessary for me to invite their significant others to the wedding?

I’ve been struggling with the plus 1 too! If you want my honest opinion I would say yes to the friend who’s married, it’s polite to invite the spouse…for those not married, my personal decision for my wedding will be to give plus 1 to the people who have been in a relationship for over a year or who live together

I was kind of thinking the same thing. I am just being a little crazy with the plus one thing, and my wedding is in less than a year. EEK!!

You absolutely have to invite married and engaged couples together. People who are in long term relationships and/or live together really should be invited together too. If you can’t afford to invite the SO, then leave the whole couple off. There have been several posts about this and the general consensus is that it’s more offensive to be invited without your spouse/partner than to not be invited at all

I say invite the friend and her husband together, and the other friend alone (unless she lives with her SO).
If you can’t afford to invite both husband and wife, then don’t invite them at all. That’s what I think, anyway.

Yes, you need to allow them to bring their significant other.

I would invite the spouse, I know I would want to bring mine, or at least have the option too.

Why don’t you talk to your friends and get their opinion on the subject. Tell them that you are trying to cut costs with guests and that you want to know if they would be offended if you didnt invite their SOs. I usually just asked my friends what they thought when it came to offended them.

@msfahrenheit: I agree with this. Invite them as a couple or don’t invite them at all.
