Guest list dramas. We want family and friends but where do you draw the line with cousins having boyfriends or girlfriends which you have met once or twice and not really spoken with.
Hi just invite those you really want to attend your wedding :)
I’m like that.. I’ve said no plus ones.. if I have space on the night then maybe but other than that it’s a no.. I can’t afford to pay for everyone and if you let one person it’s going to spiral out of control xx
We had no plus one's at all - if people were together and we wanted them both there, we invited them both but there was no way we were inviting cousin John's girlfriend we'd never met :) x
I had a rule of if they wear together for more then a year (give or take). Then I would invite them. I just think I would hate it if my husband or when he was my boyfriend wasn’t invited to a wedding I was. Xx
No ring no bring!!
Or they’ve been together a substantial amount of time...
I didn't even invite my cousins, we never see each other anymore.... I'd go for invite those that play a part in your life, leave everyone else, it's just numbers at the end of the day x
We've said plus ones can attend for the evening. I've been to evenings only when my OH has been to the day.
We've gone with the unless they've been together a while and we have spare places. There's only 3 people bringing plus ones that they aren't married to and we haven't met. And that was only because there was room for it.
If they've been together over a year and are likely to stay together then I'd say invite them if you have room
I had to say no. Even to step siblings partners. Me and my partner have 18 siblings between us Inc step. If we invited their partners literally no one else could attend. Its a difficult one
We had this dilemma. Unfortunately politics comes in to it and we invited them in the end. We wanted to stick with the rule where if they were in a proper relationship I.e. living together then it’s not fair to leave them out. Xx
Ive not invited anyone who we dont speak to,or isnt close family
You could go with the rule if if there isn’t a ring then they are not in
Do what you want, it’s your day (as in you and your other half)
we have said no plus 1s in the day as works out to another 25 people and to be honest i dont want a bunch of people at the wedding we dont even know x let alone the cost per head for a complete stranger
We had a rule of relationships that are over a year long should be invited.
No cousins are invited to my day do, we've far too many between us! They are all invited to the evening do, with partners, but not their kids as that takes us well over budget!
I'd say invite family for the full day and partners/anyone you don't know well in the evening. The day is so structured anyway that they'd only really miss them in the evening when the dancing/drinking really begins! :-)
We’ve stuck to the rule for during the day of only having parents, siblings, close friends and close cousins. Then int he evening we’ll invite the rest of the people that we won’t there but couldn’t unfortunately find seats for (only having 50 in morning) x
Be savage. Would you pay like 80 pounds to take that person to dinner? If not then dont invite them. Its also a personal event so you dont want to share it with people you barely know x
I'm due to get married I have only 45 in the day 2hich is family very close friends and all partners. If I received an invite that was just for me I wouldn't go! X
Everyone who had a gf/bf when we started organising our wedding has been invited- some of which I haven't met. Everyone who has met someone since then hasn't been invited... I simply don't have the capacity and draw the line at someone who they have only known for a few months. Harsh but I don't really care
