Today I’m wondering about the etiquette of inviting single guests to your wedding: do you allow them to bring a partner, knowing that you may end up paying for a complete stranger to attend your big day, or do you invite them on their own, and risk them feeling uncomfortable because they don’t know anyone?
We’re going to be doing a mixture of both. My fiance has a group of single friends who’ve all known each other for years, and see each other regularly. We’ll be inviting them as "singles" because we know they’ll all know each other, and won’t feel awkward. A few of my friends, on the other hand, won’t know anyone at the wedding except me, so we’re going to allow them to bring a partner so they’re not hanging around on their own at the times when we’re off doing other things.
What does everyone else think? What will you be doing?
