Expert Planner Panel

Today's question is one that is extremely important in keeping your relationships with your single guests healthy and happy. We asked our experts: How do you handle inviting a single guest and not allow them to bring a guest?

"Traditionally, you would address the invite to only the one person. But as we all know, guests do not always follow that simple rule of etiquette anymore! You might need to have a private chat with some of those single friends explain your reason why. Beware, many unmarried people find it tremendously upsetting to not be allowed to bring a date. Prepare them for the idea and pay careful attention to where the singletons sit during dinner." --Margaret Tolbert, Details by Margaret
