I think you handled it perfectly. I’d chalk it up to he’s a guy and guys are usually clueless in regards to etiquette. I’m surprised his mom didn’t catch that, though.

Depends on the situation. Especially considering the aunt and other people from that part of the family aren’t coming, in a way, that “freed up” space for his plus one, if that makes sense. I would be a little irritated that you were supposed to read his mind like that, but no harm/no foul on this one, in my opinion.

well i do agree that there would probably have been a better way to let you know that he had a girlfriend. and he responded like he just assumed he could bring her anyways, even though he only rsvp’d for 1.

however, if the rest of the family can’t make it, i think you did the right thing by letting her come…

You did fine. He responded like a doofus (maybe his family was acting at his request to make sure you knew?), but if she isn’t going to cause you space/budget problems, just let it go. It wouldn’t have been worth telling him he was acting like a dope!
