- Wedding: July 2013
I have a dilemma – We are not giving plus ones to single guests (even our very best friends/wedding party) – only guests who we know are in a relationship get to bring a date. Our wedding is pretty large as it is and there are still more people we would have wanted to invite if we had the budget, plus our venue has a limit on how many people we can have and we are nearing that.
One of my girlfriends emailed me after getting the invite asking if she could bring a friend because she had just broken up with someone and was feeling lonely. She will know a few others at the wedding. She never even told me she was dating anyone. I said no because of the venue size restrictions and told here there would be plenty of other singles at the wedding so not to worry.
A couple we sent a STD to got divorced after the Save-The-Date Cards went out. I am friends with the husband but didn’t really know his wife at all. So we sent the invitation just to him. Now he is asking if he can bring a plus one. I feel terrible and don’t know what to say – techically we did account for his ex-wife when we originally made our list but my fiance’s parents also invited some people without asking us which was making me nervous about our venue capacityt. Also since I told my other friend she can’t bring someone I don’t know if I should tell him that he can. I am not super close to him but have been friends with him for a few years. I don’t want others to get mad if they find out I let him bring a guest. He will know several other people at the wedding and he is local. What should I do??
