How to prevent an unexpected plus one.
As you start receiving your RSVP’s you may notice you have quite a few plus ones you were not anticipating. It’s understandable why a guest may want to bring a date to a wedding, but if the plus ones are out numbering family attendance there is a polite way to narrow down the guest list. BRIDES magazine suggests sending a polite e-mail notifying guests that you would love to have them bring a date to celebrate with them, but due to space and budget limitations you cannot accommodate dates. Be sure to end the e-mail on a positive note and acknowledge how excited you are to have them attend.
