@june2013bride:  I would just address it to the friend and leave off the girlfriend/+1. If they’ve only been dating on and off for a year (and they’re currently off), that’s not a serious enough relationship to consider her a close friend.

Ditto. Address the invite to him and him alone. That’s what I did in a similar siutaion. 🙂

I would invite him and not add his girlfriends of give him an open ‘+1’.

If they’ve been on and off over a year and are currently ‘on a break’ I really don’t see the need to invite her.

Your invitations should be going out around the end of March/begining of April, so I would say hold off on deciding until that time.

But if they are off, then don’t invite her.

Like PP say, I’d address it to just him, no +1…but if you’re close enough with him, maybe it’s also worth a phone call follow up to give a brief explanation of the situation, explain you didn’t mean to leave the gf off but that if they get back together he is welcome to bring her to the wedding. Just an option.

@kate02121:  I agree with that option.  Be straight with him and explain that you aren’t allowing strangers to come so if he brings her its ok but if its last nights’ news than no thanks.
