Of course not. Everyone has a right to have a relationship with anyone they choose, regardless of sex. If your guests are too bigoted to understand that, too bad.

Most younger people know at least one gay person or more. I don’t think people will be offended. It sucks that they won’t be able to show affection in public but as you said, it’s not like they are in a relationship. He’s travelling quite a ways to come for your wedding. I’m sure he will have fun. As per your qestion, I won’t have a problem with it.

i have a ton of gay friends and we will be having 3 gay couples attending our wedding. if someone has a problem with them, they can take it up with me—i will unleash my inner bridezilla on them, and then they can leave our wedding.

but thats just me 🙂

I wouldn’t be offended at all. I’m actually surprised you asked this 🙂

I agree with Statutory Grape. I wouldn’t think twice about it. For me it’s a celebration and your day. Everyone should be able to a have a good time.

No way would I be offended. I probably wouldn’t even notice, because it’s not a big deal.

I actually have a similar problem. One of my oldest friends is a gay man, and he and his husband will be attending our wedding. Some of the boy’s family members are fairly homophobic as well. I’m not worried that they’ll be offended (if they are, I don’t care), but I’m a tiny bit worried that they will do something to offend my friends. They’re polite people so I’m not worried that they’ll make a scene, but I’m hoping that they don’t make any remarks that my friends or anyone else will hear.

I know that the guy who was invited was gay, but since this isn’t his partner you shouldn’t even mention that he’s gay. You should just leave it at there being two good guy friends.

And no, I don’t think most people care.

Not at all! I’d be perfectly ok even if they were involved!

It’s just 2 guys coming together, not a big deal at all. I don’t think anyone would be offended at all. If they are, who cares? Clearly they have their own issues if they feel the need to comment about other guests.

Don’t even worry yourself about this.

No, I wouldn’t be offended it all. And if there are people who are offended, then that’s their own ignorance.
