I felt a little strange recently when a bridesmaid was talking about who she’d bring as a date (from among our mutual friends).  So you’re not alone!  However, are any of your bridesmaids in relationships/bringing dates?  I think it can be tough for the single girl (if she wants to get married someday) to be supportive as her friends get married, and perhaps it feels a little better to have a date along.

Will you be having a head table?  If so, wouldn’t your Maid/Matron of Honor be sitting with you at the head table the whole night, and not with her date? 

We’re on a tight budget with limited seating available at our venue, so my BM’s that are not in a serious relationship will not get a plus one invite.  Esp since they won’t even be sitting with their date the whole night and they know tons of other people at the wedding. 

I think you should talk to her about it how you feel.  I wouldn’t want randome ppl at my wedding either… esp since I’m having to cut some good friends out as it is.

I think you should let her know how you feel:  that you’re so happy she’s been a supportive Maid/Matron of Honor, that you are only inviting guests for those in a serious relationship due to constraints, and emphasize the fact that she’ll be sitting with you and your groom and making sure your reception goes off without a hitch. That should be the end of the story since it’s your special day, not hers, and hopefully she can understand that.

I feel your pain, though; one of my two MOH’s has this on-again, off-again boyfriend/whatever guy and I don’t really want him at my wedding, although I’m worried she’ll protest because they have been doing this on-again off-again thing for a few years now and I basically lived with both of them for a summer, so it’s not as though I don’t know the guy. I don’t consider them to be in a serious relationship at all, so I don’t feel like I should have to invite him.

Good luck with your situation…
