Guest assumes they can bring someone

Sucks that it comes across to FI that I just don't like his friends, its not my fault that all my bridesmaids(with the exception of my little sister who is 13 lol) are in relationships so of course I included their guys in our guest list and none of his close friends are dating anyone seriously.
Ah the politics of weddings.

We have been really lucky as far as tag alongs have gone. Friends have asked if their family/friend can book with us to get our deal - but immediately said they were just coming along to get the deal and would not assume they were a part of the wedding festivities. That made it easy on us because we have not had to tell them no. The only person I had to say no to was a cousin who was getting carried away who he thought I should be inviting, but he backed off right away when I told him that was not what [I]we[I] wanted.

If you're not that close to your extended family, how would they even know you didn't know the +1s anyway?
Also, just wanted to add that as someone that has been a single most of my life, I've rarely received a wedding invite that included a guest...this is true even though I've been a bridesmaid six times...including at a destination wedding. I've never thought twice about it. Then again....I like to travel solo and have done it often. I'm finding that my expectations when it comes to my wedding is not necessarily the same as that of others. This has sure been a learning experience!!
