Are you giving any of your single guests the option to bring a date? What's the plus one policy for your wedding?

    I am allowing plus ones to my single guests because I only have a handful of single guests. I have a lot of couples that I will be addressing them in the invitations.

    Most everyone we are inviting is already married, there are only a few that would be considered for plus ones and I don't think we'll be giving them.

    If they have the same significant other at the time invitations go out as they did when save the dates went out, then they will be invited by name. We only have 2 people out of 225 who have an open plus one invitation because they are flying in by themselves.

    If a plus one was warranted, then one was allowed.

    Otherwise, they will have people to talk to at their table.

    Yes, everyone we invited got a plus one if they were invited as a single and not a married couple

    Pretty much all of our guests are coupled. The few that are not in a relationship will not be getting a plus one. If they ask us later and say they are in a relationship then I would say sure bring them.

    Yes, we’re giving plus-ones to our single friends. I want everyone to have a good time, so I want them to have the option of bringing a date, even if a few of them won’t.

    We are allowing plus ones to each person we give the invitations too. Things happen. An emergency can happen and the family or couple we invited got stuck baby sitting their niece or nephew whoever it may be. They are more than welcome to come just because we know how it is with emergencies.

    I’ve only really given plus ones to those I know are in relationships. Majority of the guest list are mutual friends so I know everyone will have at minimum 5 other good friends they know

    We are. We don't have many single guests invited so I didn't see any issue with it.
