Generally, unless the person is married, engaged, or living with his/her SO, you’re under no obligation to give them a plus one.  If you think that all of these people will know other people at the wedding, they should be fine without a plus one, especially since your budget doesn’t allow lots of extra guest.  However, keep in mind that many people assume that their SO is invited, so make sure you’re clear about exactly who’s invited.

Fiance has 3 cousins in their 20’s- and only one of them right now has a plus one. They have been together a while and may even be engaged by our wedding. Other than that, the others don’t have dates.

Normally people will know whether their SO is invited by the names written on the invitation.

I’ve found myself somewhat in the minority on these boards about it, but I feel like all adults should get a +1 if at all possible.  I went to a lot of weddings while I was single and I always had a better time at the ones I had a date at.  Its not to say that I can’t have fun without a date, but if there’s dancing involved, yeah, I wanted my boyfriend there even if we have only been together for a short time.
