    @Shkragoldfish:  if i was invited to a wedding, unless i had at least a boyfriend who i had been with a long time, i would not ask to bring a +1.

    of your friends who have bfs, fis, dhs, give them a +1 named on the invitation.

    otherwise, just invite the person.  as it gets closer to the day, you can extend an extra quest to those you would like.

    @Shkragoldfish:  don’t over complicate things, let this be a stressfree, happy time.

    yes, a few weeks before, if you have the space, just extend a +1 for those you wish to extend a +1 for.  it doesn’t have to be formal, they are your friends.  you can ask them verbally, but stress to them that you need to know if they will bring the +1 by x date so you can let the caterer know.

    Do both for all invites.  If you are having inner envelopes then write out the names, and then on the RSVP card also right out “We have reserved x number of seats in your honor.”
