I think YABVU in not allowing a friend a plus one at your wedding grin

Weddings are miserable events to be at without a date/friend whatever!

YANBU to not want an internet randomer around on your big day.

Your friend's response sounds fine to me - I have to say I think every wedding needs a random person at it!

I wouldn't have a problem with it, either. Even if she had been dating the guy for years that doesn't mean OP would know he's not a loon.

Bet someone OP knows well will be the worst trouble-maker on the night.

If the guy is coming that week anyway for her birthday then that will put your friend in a horrible position. She will either have to cancel on you or leave him on his own for the day. Will one more person really make a difference?

YABU unless you didn't state friend + 1 on the invite

I couldn't imagine going to a wedding dateless

You never watched the movie the Wedding Date.

Going to a wedding dateless is not so bad. I met my fiance at a wedding so quite glad i attended it on my own really.
I do get what you mean about not wanting a bunch of people you don't know at your wedding. I have had similar issues with my family and do regret not putting my foot down a little bit.

Sounds like a great compromise op.
