So, one of my single male friend sent me an email asking what the likelihood of his getting a plus one for my wedding will be. He also asked how many cute single girls our age will be at the wedding! lol. This is not offensive because we often talk about getting him a nice female companion (lol), but I'm not sure how to tell him he's 95% not getting a plus one... I feel a little bad because there's only going to be about 3 single ladies at my wedding, since all of our friends are either in a relationship or engaged or married.
We have 80+ more
people on our guest list than we originally wanted and we're not giving plus ones to any of our friends who are not married/engaged/living with their partner/ or been in a relationship for multiple years - basically any situation where it would look extremely rude if we didn't give a plus one. Single friends = no plus one.
Granted we are having a semi-destination wedding, but my friend's potential plus one (who is just a friend of his, and I've never met) lives in the city we're getting married in and he is also travelling and staying with another one of our guy friends, so it's not like he's travelling alone... so I really don't think he needs a plus one! Plus, FI and I already decided we don't want people bringing "random" plus ones just for the sake of having a plus one if they will have other friends at the wedding...
Anyway, I've already decided he's not getting a plus one unless about 100 people decline their invitations -- I'm just trying to figure out a tactful way to tell him. Suggestions??? TIA!
