    [QUOTE]its inappropriate for your friend to ask to bring a date, and stick to your guns.  if you wanted to invite them, you'd have indicated "and guest" on the original invite.

    I agree with laryan.  If you wanted to invite a specific person with a guest, the invitation would have said so.  I think it's rude of someone to call and ask if they can bring someone.  Um, can't you read the invite?  Does it look like you can?

    Agreed. If your friend doesn't want to go alone, then he just shouldn't go at all.

    Re: Guest asking to bring date

    I'd say no. I hate how people assume they can bring someone. We had one person(a single invite-no guest) on my FI's side never send the response card in. So when my mom called my FMIL said that they were coming with TWO other people! Who does that?!? to keep the peace we are just rolling with it...i'm too stressed to get into a fight over it. people's rude-ness always amazes me.

    That's right when I'd reply with a quick, firm, "Um, no you aren't.  You, and you alone, are the only one who was invited, and we do not have the capacity nor the budget to cover additional people OFF our guest list."

    That's totally rude!!!  I would say NO!

    Re: Guest asking to bring date

    UGH!! People really URK ME! My friend is getting married August 1st and this girl who is going (I am not a fan of her) badgered her every day whether or not she was going to be invited with a date because that weekend her good male friend was going to be in town and she would have to bring him, and if couldn't go then she wouldn't be able to go to the wedding. So my friend, being the nicest person on the earth that she is, finally agreed to invite her with guest, and that girl replied with NO GUEST because apparently her male friend can't make it now! UGH I was annoyed and so was my friend. After all that harassment, and he isn't even coming!!!!

    I am mad just typing this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    On a related note, I have a friend who was relieved to be invited to her cousin's wedding without a guest, because she didn't know which of the two guys she is secretly sleeping with to take...

    See?  Some people don't WANT to bring a guest.  Cool

    So, let me get this straight, the friend who wanted to be invited with a guest, so she could bring her male friend to the wedding as he was going to be in for the weekend, said that she wouldn't come UNLESS she were invited with a guest?  Oh my, she went for the threat route.  SHAME!!!!  That's mean. 

    I would be mad, too, Liz!  Ha, and I don't even know these people.

    Lucy, that's too funny!  I guess she'd have some explaining to do if she'd gotten an "and guest" invitation!!  LOL

    Liz, my gosh, I can't imagine anyone who's single threatening to not come unless they are invited with a guest.

    Whose to say this friend isn't looking @ this wedding as a "scoring event" since she's already sleeping w/two guys??   **just a thought** knowing that i've been to weddings where guests "just want to score"...

    Oh, I'm fairly certain that's one of the reasons she's relieved not to have gotten an "and guest."  Not that she would tell me such a thing.
