He sounds like kind of a rando, I mean, this isn’t even a close friend we’re talking about. I wouldn’t be thrilled about it, but I’d let it slide for a bridesmaid.

Where I am bridal parties don’t get an automatic +1. I am not sure whether that’s because we also pay for their dresses and stuff. Anyway I don’t think I would give a +1. I would apply whatever principals I had applied to other guests

Personally, I think members of the bridal party should be extended a plus one. They are spending a lot more time and effort on the day itself when compared to other guests (not to mention their involvement in any pre-wedding activities). It’s not necessary, and if space is an issue then I can understand not wanting to eliminate another guest because of it, but offering her a +1 would be a nice gesture and it is no way an obligation to make exceptions for anyone else.

Plus if most of your friends are married/engaged it might just be nice for her to know that there’s someone available for her to dance with 🙂

mrsstewietobe :  Yep you’re being ridiculous. She’s your closest friend. Let her bring someone.

mrsstewietobe :  I am in a similar quandary, except my chief bridesmaid is my older sister! She is single, has been for almost a decade following the traumatic breakdown of a long term relationship, and she’s cool with that. She loves her job and has worked hard to be so successful in her chosen career.

In the early stages of wedding planning I floated around the idea of giving her a plus one – for a mate or a date, whoever… But now I don’t know if that’s such a good idea. At the reception, my sister will be seated at the top table with me, and her plus one would be seated elsewhere, likely not.familar with anyone else and probably feeling quite awkward. My sister hasn’t mentioned a plus one since so I don’t think she’s expecting one, but should I offer anyway?
