When it comes to weddings, everyone has their personal preferences.

While some want to celebrate with dozens of people, others prefer to keep their big days more private. They may choose to only invite those who they are really close with.

And this was definitely the case for one bride, who was determined not to celebrate with any "strangers". For that reason, she banned some plus ones from her wedding.

She warned her loved ones that only those listed on the invitations were welcome. And explaining her reasoning on Reddit, she explained: "My wedding is next fall and I have a few friends who wanted plus ones.

"I made a guidelines on who gets a plus one and me and soon-to-be husband decided on we would only allow plus one to people who have been together for at least a year. I've had a few friends tell me they want to plus one and I've had to tell them no."

One of the couple's friends, who she referred to as 'T', apparently asked the bride "five times" if his partner 'S' can attend. But as they've only been dating for three months, they were rejected.

The bride continued: "S is very loud and tends to get very very drunk. She really doesn't talk to me or interact with me even at parties or social gatherings.."

This didn't stop them trying to find a way to get around the rules, though. She added: "Even after telling him no he has also asked the wedding party to try to convince me to let her come.

"In my eyes it wouldn't be fair to everyone else I said no to as well. Weddings are stressful enough and I really don't feel like I should be pressured to invite somebody I barely know."

The woman turned to Reddit for reassurance – and plenty told her she should stand firm in her decision. One said: "It's your wedding, so you can invite who you want. They also are fine to ask but need to accept your answer."

And another added: "Your wedding, your choice. You don't want S to come, so you have no obligation to invite her. Simple as that."
