With the economy down and food prices up, brides-to-be are doing everything they can to keep reception costs down. Cutting costs at the reception usually means keeping the number of guests down. Afterall, you're really just paying for everyone's dinner (and sometimes drinks). So is it OK to tell your single guests they can't bring a date? I've seen that simple question cause terrible arguments. The New York Times tried to work out this hot button issue last year. What it comes down to is that for the guest, it means having to come to the wedding as a "lone wolf". But for the bride and groom, it means potentially paying to feed strangers.
