I would ask another relative what his name is. Or you could just say ‘and partner’ but if he’s coming to your wedding you should really find out his name.

I would find out what his name is.  And technically if they don’t live together, he should get his own invite at his own residence.


Otherwise as above is fine.  And I might make an exception and use an inner envelope for some of the more complicated invites.

You could also write “Ms. Jane Jones and family”.

@SoontobeMrsAM:  call and ask is the only polite way.

Though I understand the point of inviting people you are clearly not close to.
