I don’t think so, as long as you clarify to her that it’s an extremely intimate ceremony. It would be weird if your wedding was bigger, but having her bring a date would change the ambiance. I wouldn’t be offended if I were her!

@Ugoob:I guess it depends on if she is seriously dating someone. I think it follow the typical plus one rule.

It sounds from your post like she’s not seriously seeing anyone.  If that’s the case then I’d say no need to worry, just clarify the wedding dynamics.  If she’s married or engaged, then I think I would give her the +1.

@Ugoob: I think if you explain to her that it’s small then she should understand. You are obligated to invite a plus one unless she is married. Since she’s a childhood friend, I’m sure she will know and be comfortable around the guests you have.

I think it’s fine to invite her alone. 


@Miss Tattoo:  You are not obligated to invite a plus 1 for people not married at all.  It’s completely up to the bride and groom.
