@tdcwriter: I think you’ll get a lot of different responses.

But personally, I dont believe in inviting guests without a date. Especially when they will have been dating for 6+ months by the time your wedding rolls around. However, if you and your Fiance already agreed, then he needs to have the convo. with his friend sooner rather than later to avoid any hurt feelings.

I think the +1 unmarried dates rule is tricky (as you are finding out).  If you are inviting some dates and not others, it’s hurtful to those whose dates are left out.

I think you need to do an all or nothing.  Either all singles get a +1 if they are dating, or none do.

I have to agree with oracle.  Personally i intend to let anyone i invite bring a date whether they be serious or not.  


But if you are trying to keep the wedding small they will have to respect your wishes.  The invites have not gone out yet so i dont think you need to worry too much.

I dont think you have to factor in how long they would have been together by the time the wedding rolls around. What matters is how long they have been together by the time the guest list is being put together. I think your fiance was wrong to offer rob’s new girl a spot without first discussing it with you and coming to an agreement together.
