Well, it sounds like he’s already invited. Let her know you need a definite answer by (date) and that if she’s not sure she wants to bring him she should come alone, or maybe bring another friend. Do you think that sounds too harsh? Most of my friends who are in casual or on/off relationships don’t mind commiting to plans without a date.

I understand you want to know a final guest count, but it sounds like the +1 is already invited.  I would assume she is bringing him and just let the chips fall.  At the end of the day, you are never going to have a 100% accurate count anyway.  People will always change their minds, but if you count the extra 1, you will be covered either way.

Does your venue make a certain % more food than you order for guests who “just show up”?  I only ask because mine DOES.  If yours does as well I wouldn’t count him and just see what happens.  If it doesn’t then I would count him, even though it appears it’s going to cost you a lot of money.
