Who gets a Plus One?

Because planning a beautiful dream wedding within budget is stressful. It’s important to look at every little detail and how much it will cost you. One of the first big costly steps in wedding planning is finding the right venue… that will fit all of your guests. Including the plus-ones. Every head counts when it comes to budgeting, so how do you determine which guests deserve a plus-one? We’ve put together a guide to help you determine who deserves that plus-one invite.


Plus-One Invites

The Wedding Party

A happy wedding party equals a happy couple. They’ve also put a lot of time and work into your day, so it’s the least you can do.


The Engaged

Anyone who’s engaged! They’ll want to experience your day together. Plus maybe they can get some inspiration for their own big day.


The Married

And of course, those that are already married. You’ll want to go to weddings with your soon-to-be spouse too!


Long term serious relationships

If they’ve been in a relationship for a couple of years or live together. You know they’re serious!


A Guest that Won’t Know Anyone else

Do them a favor and give them a plus-one. They’ll feel more comfortable and will have more fun!


Skip The Plus-One Invite

Single Guests Who Will know Others

The singles who you may not be particular close to. Let’s say your mother-in-law insisted on inviting a second cousin.



If you’re close to some coworkers, invite the group! They are more than likely to go together. As for your boss, if you are close with them send them one too. Remember you don’t have to invite everybody.


Those Who Are Casually Dating

If the guest in question seems to have a new significant other every few months or hasn’t been dating the same person for more than a year, giving them a plus-one isn’t a priority, although it is thoughtful if you have the budget to do so.

7 Things You Should Never Wear To A Wedding

Holly Bowe

Of the many ways guests can ruin a wedding, showing up in a white dress ranks high on the list. But this surprisingly common mistake isn't the only fashion faux pas wedding guests are making.

With the start of wedding season here, we thought we should find out exactly what guests should avoid wearing.

Here are the worst things you could possibly wear:


It sounds pretty obvious, but guests show up in white more often than you think.  Despite it being a longstanding tradition for the bride to wear white on her wedding day, some guests really do show up to weddings in white dresses.

Other bridal colors and styles of dresses are also out of the question.

If it could be a wedding dress, it shouldn't be on your body unless you're the bride.  Avoid anything white. Same goes for creme, light beige, off white, eggshell... and especially white lace.

There's only one exception to this rule: You can wear it only if the bride has explicitly said the guests can wear white, perhaps if they are are going with a white theme wedding.


Dressing like the bride is one problem; dressing like a bridesmaid is another.

If you actually know what the bridesmaids are wearing, and YOU'RE not a bridesmaid, try to avoid looking like a member of the bridal party.  Don't overthink it, and certainly don't bother the bride, but if you're sure that the bridesmaids are all wearing pink chiffon, maybe go for gray instead.


Wear denim only if the wedding is super casual.

Unless its a Denim and Diamonds dress code, denim is pretty much an unwelcome guest at a wedding. This doesn't mean that pants or a jumpsuit are off the table, but it's best to leave your jeans at home.

If you're not sure, just don't wear it.


It doesn't look good, even if you're the groom!

For anyone thinking of wearing shorts to a wedding, Just don't.

Khakis are another big faux pas. If the invite says semiformal, do not wear khakis.


This goes without saying, but with the rise of athleisure — and fancy athleisure — sweats have no place at a wedding.  If you are thinking about it, just don't.


What you wear underneath your outfit can be just as important.

While you'll feel underdressed at most weddings in shorts or sweatpants, you can wear a fancy outfit — and be underdressed in a more literal sense.

Fashion that reveals what's underneath is everywhere these days.  A deep plunging back looks gorgeous but not when we can see your [bra] straps. Invest in a quality strapless bra or have your tailor sew cups inside.

That doesn't mean you should feel as if you have to cover up completely, though. It's OK to show some skin, but show it with caution and class, and always plan to cover up during a ceremony with a shawl or cape.


Don't upstage the bride with a dramatic outfit.

Just as bad as outfits that show too much are outfits that show off too much.

This is the couple's day to shine, so while you should dress up and dress festive, don't overdo it.  If you're on the fence or need a barometer, ask yourself, 'If I were the bride, would I want my guest to wear this?'  If the answer is no, you probably shouldn't wear it.

It sounds obvious, but all too often, it happens, so better to be safe than sorry.
