Myth #1: Everyone in my party needs to be single.

False. This is an old tradition that no longer applies. Members of your bridal party can be single, in a relationship, engaged, or even married. If they are a close friend or family member, then don’t hesitate to ask.

It's ok if their date is not a groomsman as long as you are considerate and try to accommodate them. For example, you can invite their dates to the pre-wedding celebration at the bride’s house, or consider having a bridal party table for the reception and include their significant other.
