Imagine marrying the love of your life and winning the lottery a few weeks later. This is exactly what happened to Debby Opper, 51, of Owings Mills, last month. On Dec. 1, Opper married Hassan Manafikhalesi, 58, at a ceremony and reception at Martin's West in Baltimore. And on Dec. 28, she won $250,000 in the Mega Millions prize drawing. "It's been quite a month for us," says Opper. The two met at a singles dance about six years ago. When Manafikhalesi popped the question in October 2012, the couple quickly went to work planning a wedding but hadn't scheduled a lengthy honeymoon because Opper was taking care of her mother, who lived in a nursing home.

I recently wrote about how to determine who gets a "plus one" to the wedding. While there are some solid criteria to consider, you will likely find yourself in a situation where a guest has RSVPed for two but their invite was only for one. So what do you do? (I guess this is a little premature for me since we haven't sent out our invites yet, but I think this is what I would do.) In my opinion, when a guest RSVPs for two when it should only be one I think it's best and easiest to just pick up the phone and be honest.
