There always seems to be a discussion on how to handle “plus one” invites. There are several schools of thought:
- No Plus One’s…this means that you only invite the people you want there, and no one else
- Plus One’s for Significant Others…this means that plus one’s are only granted to friends’ spouses, fiancés, or long term (over 1 year) significant others. The plus is that only people who are important to you or important to loved ones are there (and in your pictures)
- Plus One’s for Fun…this means that you invite plus one’s for those who may not enjoy the event without one, for example a friend of yours who will not know other people at the event is allowed a plus one to help him/her enjoy the event with a companion. This loosens the guest list slightly, allowing someone who might not necessarily be a close friend to join in.
- Plus One’s for All…that’s right, everyone get’s one! This makes your event more of a social mixer with a few new faces.
