Who Can Bring a Plus One?
The guest list is one of the major tasks that you will have to conquer when planning your wedding. When choosing who makes the cut for the final list, it can be hard to decide who gets a plus one and who has to come solo. Here are some things to consider!
When sending out invites to couples, you should address both partners by name in the invitation, and they should not be counted as a plus one. Plus ones are generally given to your single guests as a courtesy, so that they can choose to attend your wedding with a date if they wish.
Staying within your budget for your wedding is always the goal. Some will argue that the most expensive cost of your special day will be the food. The average cost of a wedding meal per person is $85! It’s always a good idea to incorporate plus ones into your budget.
