  • No, it means that your friend didn't take the time to find out what your non-existent partner's name is, and used the shorthand "and partner." The "and partner" is interesting because it implies "I don't want you to just bring a date", which is certainly understandable, but then they should have found out the actual name of the person, or that there wasn't one.

  • IMO you be the judge. Your relationship with the other person is none of the other people's business, but I think you should bring someone who you personally comfortable with, and you would like to have around at a party.

    Weddings are supposed to be fun, not only for the newlyweds and their close relatives, but for the invitees too.
