Deciding whether or not to give the option of “plus one” can be a very difficult and sensitive subject. When has someone been in a relationship long enough to include their significant other? Should you feel guilty for not providing a plus one option? How do you handle guests that are upset with your decision? Basically the whole process is very stressful.
First thing’s first: stay calm. This is YOUR wedding, and you’re inviting guests who you want to add to your special day, not your best friend’s on again off again fling. You don’t have to worry about pleasing every single person in attendance, because the odds of that happening are astronomically low. Your guests are there for you and want to celebrate your marriage whether they are with a date or not.
Here are a few general ideas to follow. Try to group single guests at tables to sit with each other so they can party stag together. A large group of co workers or teammates can be invited without plus ones. If you have someone traveling from out of town who may not know other guests give them the option of a plus one so they are not totally alone. Whether they are dating someone or not, the wedding party should get dates. They did shell out quite a bit of time and money over the last year. It is also a good idea to address the invitation personally to dates. I think if you know their partners name without having to search social media it is safe to say they should be invited.
Ultimately this is your day and you should include only the people you want to attend.
