@JuneBride_2013:  I am in the same situation! I’ve had friends not ask, but tell me they are bringing a guest (one says she is bringing a boyfriend of 6 months, and the other doesn’t even know who she’s bringing, she just wants to ring someone because the other friend says she is.) they’ve said that if its because of money, they will pay for their own guests. My fiancé doesn’t care, but I honestly don’t want strangers at my wedding, sharing my day with me. My Maid/Matron of Honor says to let them come because they will feel lonely and sad seeing me get married and they’re alone. Everyone one is tellin me not to care, that its not a big deal, but I just don’t see it the same way. I don’t know why I feel so protective over my wedding. 

I have no clue what to do. 🙁

You have said you only want people you know, and that seems important to you. Then don’tinvite those you don’t want to be there. Make a list of who you do want to share your day with. I would explain to friends exactly what you have written. Friends will understand. Put all the singles together and they will have a blast.

I’m having a destination wedding in Vegas and we decided on plus ones for the singles. We decided that if they’re willing to fly across the country for us, they should be able to bring someone important to the, if they’d like. Aside from the ceremony and reception dinner you may not see the guests much.
