I am not using an inner envelope…now I think maybe I should have planned otherwise. There are a few people who I would like to allow to bring a guest (who wants to show up alone). How do I indicate that they can do that. I don’t want to write on the address envelope ‘MR John Jones and guest” Any ideas?

On our RSVP cards we had a section that said:
“______ of _______ guests will attend” We filled in the second line of how many people were invited. So if we had a person and we were allowing them to bring a guest, we would write “2” on the second line.

I’m writing it on the outer envelope.

How many people fall in this category? If it’s not a LOT – maybe you could just TELL them (I’m not sure how good this is etiquette wise…) or if it IS a lot – have you made the RSVP’s up yet? Could you put something on those ones that states “we’ve reserved two seats for you” or whatever?

M_________ (And I would write Mr. Smith + guest)
_____ Accept with pleasure
______Decline with regret

we aren’t using inner envelopes either, we’re just writing the names on the outer envelope. for people who have a +1, we’ll write the +1s name (we’re only including +1s for long-term, serious relationships). so like, “groomsman and groomsman’s-girlfriend’s-name.” there might be a few people (fi’s friends who live out of town who have so’s we don’t know, for example) who we write “and guest” for, i guess…

I wrote it on the outer envelope. In 90% of the cases, I knew or asked someone (their mom/friend/sister/etc) what their sig. other’s name is. We did give a guest to singles traveling from out-of-town, so in that case, I just put “and Guest”. I know some people don’t like to travel alone, and that way they can bring a date or a friend or a sibling.

We wrote it on the outer envelopes. There were very few people who we invited with just a guest – the bridal party members who were unattached and some people from overseas. Their envelopes were addressed to Mr. X & Guest.

There are a whole 2 people who are invited + guest and I will put “and Guest” on the outer envelope.

Our invitations don’t have inner envelopes either. In cases where we’re inviting a couple who lives together, both of their names will go on the outside. If they don’t live together, or we’re not specifically inviting the guest, we’ll put “____ of X accept,” like @Tulip61110.

We’re doing it on the outer envelope as well. We’re inviting everyone with a plus one.

We included it on the belly band. We actually stamped out each name with little letter stamps…and where appropriate included ” & Guest”.

- Wedding: September 2010 - Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery
I am thinking of doing a belly band for this very reason, and just writing John + Guest or Jane + John, etc. on the belly band!
