@danadelphia:  I really like that rule you set up because so many single people just automatically assume they can bring a date.  I can understand if it’s a close friend with a serious relationship, but someone just bringing a date for the heck of it?  No way!  Good choice!

I definitely feel your pain with the tight guest list, but aren’t you going to offer your friend a “and guest” anyway?  Maybe she will be dating someone again by the time your wedding rolls around, and then how would you tell her that you revoked his spot when she dumped the old boyfriend?  I saw your post about the whole 6 month rule thing, but I still think it’d be awkward…just my thoughts!

Totally understandable.. my Maid/Matron of Honor is inviting her WHOLE FAMILY!

Then she was like, oh I’m not bringing a boyfriend, but I’m bringing my other friend. Ummmm okay… Sure $100 a person, whatever you want there Megan. She’s new to weddings…

I’m just as bad. Four of my friends have gotten engaged and although I’m really excited for then, I’ve rolled my eyes after the addition of four new guests. Ugh. Fiance thinks it’s comical.
