    @Snapdragon2804:  

    Depending on the formality of your invite you could go with Mr. John Lastname and Ms. Jane Smith.

    Or Jane Smith and John Lastname.

    The only time you don’t need to list a last name is if the invitation is for a child.

    If you don’t know his name, wouldn’t you address it to Ms Jane Smith and guest? and then add the and Family in there, although I wouldn’t know if it would be before or after the guest. Hmm.  Good question.

    If she’s a good family friend, I suppose you could call her up and ask her ๐Ÿ™‚ Tell her you want to invite him and you need his info for the invite. Problem solved.

    I think that would be fine, as long as it isn’t something where he’d need to be making travel arrangements or something ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m running into an issue with my save the dates, only because I won’t know if we’ll have our actual date until much closer to the wedding (due to visa issues) but I need to let out of country relatives know they are invited now so they can start saving up and making plans if they want to come. That’s why I bring up travel arrangements. But I think as long as it’s local, you should be good with what you said, just putting her name and family on it ๐Ÿ˜‰
