    Normally I would suggest that you don’t have to, but given that it’s an out-of-town wedding and it seems like the women won’t know anyone else there, it might be nice to try to find room to give them a +1. I wouldn’t worry about making them feel bad – I’m sure they’ll appreciate the gesture even if they decide not to bring anyone!

    If they’re out of town guests who won’t really know anyone else, I’d definitely give them a +1. I did that for a few of my friends, and a couple of them just brought a friend. You can look at it as spending money on a stranger, OR you can try to look at it the way I did — allowing my friend a +1 ensured that SHE would be there to celebrate with me on my wedding day. 🙂

    For ours, we also have a few friends who don’t know other people and we also didn’t want it to be ‘awkward’ for them or have them leave early because they didn’t know anyone. What I did was sent the invitations as just for 1, then gave them calls and said “just so you know, I sent your invitation as 1 but you’re more than welcome to bring someone with you; just let me know when you rsvp”. That way, I left it up to them. If you have the money to be able to add a few extra guests, I say leave it up to your friend to decide if they want to go solo or with a date.

    For an out of town wedding where they won’t know anyone else, I’d definitely give the option of a +1.  Personally, unless you were a really close friend, I probably wouldn’t travel Out of Town for a wedding if I had to attend solo and wouldn’t know any of the guests.
