I wouldn’t worry too much about the STD’s, address it only to the party that you want to invite no matter what.  If the Girlfriend won’t be invited regardless of if she is with your friend, then you don’t send her an STD.  Otherwise you will be forced to invite her seperately when invites go out.

When it’s time for invitations just call up your friend and ask”Is there anyone you would like me to invite to accompany you to our wedding?  Then ask for their name.  Guests should never be addressed as +1.  Every guest should be treated in the same way, including being invited by name.

I am not certain what the question is really trying to ask, but I am not likely going to do +1 for everyone.  Obviously people who are married or engaged or living togethor get their partner to come.   My close friends I know if they are in a committed relationship.   What I am doing for unmarried people I dont know that well (like out of town cousins), as I send out STD, I am sending just to them, and I am checking Facebook to give me an idea (not always conclusive), but it can help.   I am writing down what it says.  Then we I send out actual invites, I will see if they are in same relationship (or none).   I am hoping this helps me get some idea if single people are in a long-term relationship.  I do not think eveyone has to get a plus one.
