I followed up with ours to find out the guests names.

If you can’t track them down you could put “Joe’s Guest” or something like that.

Becuase I am crabby about people doing the same thing on our RSVP’s, I am going to put “Invited Person’s Name Guest” on the placecard.

If I was in a better mood about it, maybe I’d follow up.  🙂

I went to a wedding last summer where I was the “and guest” and they just made two placecards for my FH. It worked out just fine.

I would try to find out the person’s name if possible. We only invited one person with and guest because I really have no idea if they’re dating anyone and it’s a distant relative who I wasn’t comfortable asking. But when they RSVP I specifically put a spot for each person’s name so hopefully that works out. I would not like to go to a wedding and not have my name on my place card!

Absolutely find out the +1’s name.  I think it is kind of rude to just call them “so-and-so’s guest” – they are a person with a name.  Now if you make an honest effort (ie, multiple attempts) to get the name and so-and-so won’t get it to you, then “so-and-so’s guest” will have to do.

We did our best to find out the +1s names.

It also helped that we did one card per couple or family.

So on the few that we couldn’t get names, it wasn’t a big deal to write “and guest”.
