I have this one friend who always brings a date to everything… basically if i give her a plus one she WILL find someone to bring. I know she isnt seeing anyone right now though.
She’s been known to bring some guy she met off tinder the week before or just a casual gf (to formal events) and I dont really want that.
How bad would it be if I dont give her a plus one on her invitation??

What is your protocol for other single guests? If you provide plus ones for other singles then it would be pretty rude not to give her one. I doubt one random person at your wedding is going to ruin it. You’ll be too busy to worry about it.

You aren’t required to give single people a +1 if you don’t want to. I’ve only given +1s to single people who will know less than 5 people at the wedding. Obviously if she ends up in a relationship that changes things, but as a single guest, the +1 option is up to you.

It’s fine to just give plus ones to established couples (I think)

We’ll give +1 to people in a relationship to invite them as a social unit.

Just to clarify: Plus 1s only refer to people who aren’t in a relationship. If the guest in question is in an established couple, when you invite their partner, it’s not a plus 1. Significant others do not equal plus 1s. SOs are not optional. Plus 1s are.
If your friend isn’t in a relationship and you don’t want her to bring a date, then you do not have to give her a plus 1. You should consider if she will know other people at the wedding and whether or not she will be comfortable and have fun without a date.

We only gave a couple of people plus one’s, and this was when they wouldn’t know many other people (eg just one couple, so you can have a bit of a gooseberry situation). I really don’t think it’s necessary to give them to everyone.
So I would only give her one if a) she will only know one or two people there or b) you have given plus ones to all other single guests and would therefore risk causing offence to make an exception for her.
