Wedding invitations create quite a few sticky etiquette situations, one of the trickiest relating to plus-ones.How do you decide who (aside from married couples, of course) gets to bring a date?
So I completely hear you when you say you have to keep an eye on the guest list.
And kudos to you for keeping your guest list to a reasonable size.
But it’s up for debate if they should be invited with a plus one if they are in the beginning stages of what dating somebody (who happened to be my now husband), but he had never been home to meet my family.
I’m not even sure my brother or his now wife knew of him.

I'm inviting friends to our wedding whom I know do not have a significant other.Ask a trusted friend if you aren't positive about someone's dating status.Rest assured that at least one or two of your single pals will call and ask about bringing a tag-along.Traditionally, only single people in serious relationships (living together or not) are invited with a plus one.Obviously married couples are invited as a couple, and if they have children they would potentially be invited, too (even though you definitely do not have to invite kids to your wedding. Given those general rules, in my opinion it would be rude to NOT invite a friend’s serious boyfriend or girlfriend.Instead, take a cue from Queen Bey and hit the wedding like a proud single lady.
