    Unless the invitation says so, no.

    They will have planned catering

    It would say plus one or and guest.

    How well do you know the couple?

    Yes it rude to ask to bring a guest,

    But. At my daughter’s wedding we had a whole group of a family not be able to come due to an illness. They had a couple of friends ask politely if they could bring a guest with them. As we had plenty of extra room they said yes, please do. We were glad they asked. 

    In general couple’s plan a specific number of guests they can afford to invite. Asking can put them into an awkward position.

      Although not asking can also create embarrassment.  If it was merely a badly worded invitation then they could clarify it.   In other words ask if they intended you to bring a guest or not. ( don't ask if you CAN bring a guest unless it was extremely important to you)

    Don't bring a guest. A guest isn't invited. You are not allowed.

    If you don't want to attend the wedding  without a plus-one then don't go. Asking if you can bring a guest, might make  the couple feel obliged to say yes.

      If the poster were married, her spouse would have been invited. Clearly she is not, or she wouldn't be asking about taking a guest.  It would be extremely rude to ask to bring a guest, and the couple would NOT be at all obligated to say yes.

    On the invitation if there is no mention of a guest or plus 1, only you were invited... without a guest.

    So... no.

    It would be RUDE to bring a guest if the invitation doesn't say plus 1.

    No, if the invitation makes no mention of a guest you are not allowed to bring one.

    I would either call and inform them or answer it in a RSVP note that you will bring someone.

      You aren't allowed to bring someone with you, not unless the invitation specifically states "plus one". The person you brought with you would not be welcome.

    No.   The invitation is addressed to you only.   That means only you are invited.

    No if the invitation only has your name on it and not "your name and guest" you are not allowed to bring a guest.
