Okay so we are trying to have a smaller wedding (about 130) and my fiancé has a huge family! So we r only inviting close friends and have said for family if you have a live in partner or arI engaged we will invite the pair. But everywhere I read says you should give bridal party a plus one. We just don’t have enough room for that and I know like only one may be engaged by then. So is it rude to not give them a plus one??

@Fall_in_love: I would just not give them plus ones. If the one girl gets engaged then let her bring her fiance. How large is your bridal party? Is it just adding a couple people?

It’s 4 each but giving them a plus one means removing close friends from college and high school. :-/ yeah guest list is major tight we can’t really go over 130 as our reception room is only so big as we wanted a smaller wedding.

I figure that with all the time that my Maid/Matron of Honor is devoting to me, the least I can do is let her bring the guy she’s dating.

If the bridal party has a long term relationship or live in partner, I think they should be invited. I went to a wedding recently with about 120 guests and anyone in the bridal party with a LTR or live-in got a plus one. Those in casual relationships or not in relationships did not.

I really think for all that the bridal party does for you and the expense they go through (sponsoring bridal shower, bachelorette party, price of dress, maybe hair and makeup), it’s the least you can do for one. I only have one without a husband, but I’m inviting her with one. Likewise, FI’s bro is single and we’re giving him a plus one.

I’m a believer in plus-ones for everybody, but that’s just me.
