- Wedding: April 2013
Alright ladies, help me out pleeease. Give me your honest opinion on this.
I’m sending out save the dates very soon, and on the envelope of the save the date I want to make it very clear who is invited and not beat around the bush and have them questioning “soo…do I bring a date or not?”
While I do (basically) have my guest list finalized, I’m still up in the air on whether or not it is improper to invite one person, compared to a person plus one/a date. Of course excluding all married/engaged persons…and those who have been in a relationship for a lengthy time and I know their boyfriend/girlfriend.
By that I mean…as for relatives, friends, & coworkers who DON’T have a bf/gf/fiance/husband/wife…whatever, my fiance and I are stumped on whether or not we say, “Okay…since they don’t really have anybody to our knowledge, we might just invite “John Smith” and not “John Smith and Guest”. Is this straight up rude and we just don’t know it? I do not want to offend anybody (I’m trying to keep the peace as much as possible)…but it is a pretty dang pricey wedding. Plus, we figure we want to keep it as personal as we possibly can…so why have my cousin bring a random date who I’ve never met before?
Going back and forth on this is making me want to pull my hair out…sooo, advice please, and thank you. 🙂
