    If you yourself work 55-60 hrs/week, how does your husband's busy work schedule cause issues? I'd be surprised if you were home before 6 either.

    And yes, it sounds totally cliché with the...

    Exactly. He'll feel bad, it's no big deal. Rejection sucks, but it's not the end of the world. If you're nice, as it sounds like you want to be, he'll come out of it none the worse in the end.

    Good lord, is this because the relationship is mostly via text that you can't clearly (if gently - you don't want to hurt him, and let's face it, you might need his help again in the future) tell him...

    Umm, no. At least not the context I was responding to, which was the guest without their +1 moping and wishing their +1 was there to dance with them, while other couples danced. Because without the...

    OTOH, I think that expecting a couple to whittle their wedding down as you suggested (don't serve a meal, don't use a sit-down venue) to accommodate random +1's is incredibly entitled. And I think...

    I think mentioning presents at all is considered tacky (even to mention that they're not needed).

    While not mandatory, wedding presents are expected just by custom, so most/all guests will bring...

    I've been to lots of weddings. Never with a +1, since I wasn't dating anyone seriously during any of the weddings.

    I always have fun! Who are these sad people who just sit there...
