Do you have RSVP cards?  You could do something like:

Mr. John Doe





something like that?  That way they can fill in the name of their guest so you can include them in any seating charts or escort cards.

It probably is not the PC way to do it, but if I was allowing a guest I put Name & Guest on the outter envelope. That way they knew the invite was for them and a guest if they so chose

@MrsDrRose612:  We are actually doing that same thing because we’re only inviting certain children to the wedding. I’ve made up a little card that goes with our stationary design to insert into the invitations of only the people with invited children.

The card has a little blurb about how a marriage is about more than just two people. It’s about a family uniting and how it’s a big day for my son as well. Then there is a line that says we would like to extend a special invitation to the children in your family.

Since its not exactly the same thing, why not say a little something about friends or loved ones sharing in your day and say that you’d like to extend an invitation for a special guest to accompany them to the wedding?

I’ll try to think of some good wording and let you know…

Do you know the name of their guest (Facebook helps)? Can you address it to both by name?

I did something similar inside my invitation and just wrote, “Jim Johnson and guest.” It’s basically what the inner evelope would say if there was one.

if you want it to be personal, find out the names of the dates you haven’t met yet before addressing the invitations. That way everyone is invited by name, and it isn’t about who has a “guest” and who doesn’t. For those you don’t want to bring the “flavor of the week,” only their own name will be on the invite.

@MrsDrRose612:  Oh I am really sorry I guess I missed that blurb in the OP

Have you printed your RSVP cards yet?

I would probably say something like “____ seats have been reserved in your honour”  That way, you can put the 2 in for those who are allowed to bring a date and a 1 in for guests who aren’t allowed to bring anyone else.

I just did inner envelopes to avoid this, haha. 

I would contact them personally to let them know they can bring a guest.  You seem to want to make it personal, but just having another piece of paper in the invite won’t really make it personal.  I’d contact them before, ask them if they want a guest, get the name, and put it on their envelope.
