    If the guest is over 16 and you don’t 100% know the name of the person they would like to accompany them. (Name names where possible and invite under-16s together with their parents).

    We gave +1s to everyone. It depends on capacity/budget. If you have room give them all +1s, if not then don’t. And I’d give the cousin one +1.

    @OnceUponATime:  Yes, when names are not known (e.g., I wouldn’t invite Mrs. X “+1” if I had good reason to believe she was bringing Mr. X, I would name them both). I would reduce the named guestlist if I thought cost would be an issue.

    I had this problem too and I wouldve loved to give everyone who was in a relationship a plus one but my are hosting so they made the rules and we ended up with anyone living together/engaged/married/dating for longer than a year or two.
