Two-thirds (66%) of men agree that it’s okay to disinvite someone from a wedding
It’s not a wedding without at least a little bit of drama, and that drama often comes from the guest list – namely, who’s invited and who’s not. But what about circumstances where the happy couple invites someone, only to later decide that they’d rather not have that person at their wedding?
Data from YouGov finds that over half (53%) of Americans say that it is acceptable to disinvite someone from a wedding, but only for a good reason. Another 8% say that it’s acceptable to disinvite them in any circumstance.
Two-thirds (66%) of men agree that it’s okay to disinvite someone from a wedding, with most of this group saying that there needs to be a good reason for it. Only 19% say that it’s “never” acceptable, compared to 29% of women who chose this answer. Altogether, about one-quarter (24%) of Americans say it’s “never” okay to disinvite someone from a wedding that they’ve already been invited to.
Between age groups, there are some significant differences. A substantial majority (69%) of Millennials between ages 18-24 say that it’s okay to disinvite someone, with only 16% saying it is never acceptable. Baby boomers who are 55 or older were about twice as likely to say a rescinded invite is never okay, with 30% choosing this response.
