Toronto2014:  I would imagine that you would just write the names on the outer envelope.  I had inner and outer envelopes though, so I’m not sure.  Is there any reason why you don’t want an outer envelope?

Toronto2014:  If you are not having an inner envelope that you have no choice but to put ‘and Guest” on the outer envelope.  You may want to reconsider using inner envelopes.  They serve a great purpose in indicating exactly who is being invited.  It is a way to indicate that children are not invited (by leaving them off the inner envelope) and also a good way to let friends know that they can bring a plus one…..

Toronto2014:  I just wrote “and guest” on the outer envelope. No big deal.

We didn’t do inner envelopes so our outer envelopes were very specific. Everyone was named, either Mr. and Mrs. John Smith or Mr. John Smith and Miss Jane Doe. The only people who got a generic “and guest” were bridal party members not already in a relationship.

I skipped the inner envelope since I thought it was an unnecessary extra cost and waste of paper. Plus it’ll lessen the postage cost.  +1 for just addressing who’s invited and/or writing out “plus guest” on the outer envelope.

I didn’t even write “and guest” and just assumed that if I invited John Smith he knew he could bring a date, BUT I know that isn’t the norm. I would write “and guest.” I don’t think it is really that big of a deal.

I just got an invite and they left the inner envelope blank! So obviously no need to feel like you need one. Just be clear one the front who is invited. I’ve also gotten ones with “and guest” on the outer envelope and it’s not big deal to me.

We just addressed all my daughter’s invites and we do not have an inner envelope…we did what you and everyone else is suggesting.  We wrote who is invited on the outer envelope.
