Being a solo wedding guest isn't always fun. Before you invite an escort, look at your wedding invitation. If it's addressed to you alone, you're not invited to bring a guest. If the words “plus guest” appear next to your name on the envelope, you're welcome to bring a guest with you.
The only exceptions to this rule are for guests who are married, engaged or living with a significant other. If you're unsure, feel free to call the mother of the bride, but do not badger her into allowing you to bring a guest. Many couples can't afford to pay for meals for boyfriends and girlfriends.
