When creating your guest list, plus ones are always a challenge. Let’s be real, at the end of the day you don’t want to end up with a bunch of Tinder dates at your wedding! So here are my tips for trimming down your guest list without leaving all your guests at the singles’ table.
1. If they’re under 21 they don’t get a plus one
This is a general rule of thumb, but of course there are exceptions! But you can pretty much guarantee that if they are too young to drink alcohol they are too young for a plus one!
2. Make sure the entire bridal party gets a plus one
Your bridal party is doing a lot for you and for your wedding so make sure you thank them with a plus one. This will keep them all happy and keep any single people from feeling awkward while surrounded by all of your married friends.
3. If they rely on Tinder, they don’t get a plus one
Anyone who isn’t in a committed, or at least somewhat committed relationship doesn’t get a plus one. You are paying for every guest so wouldn’t you like each guest to be important to you? Your wedding should not be the venue for a first date!
At the end of the day, weddings are expensive and personal events. You don’t want to spend that day with strangers nor do you want to pay for a stranger’s meal! So be sure to keep plus ones in mind and who you are giving them too when planning your guest list!
