So my mom and I were discussing addressing of the STDs the other day and we have guests whom get a guest. She thinks to not put Mr. X and guest on this envelop but in the invitation put number of seats reserved on your honor on the RSVP. So question is do you u put Mr. X and guest on the STDs? and not on the Invitation or do u just leave it off and wait till RSVP comes out with number of seats they can have?
Currently I just have Mr. X. on STD
and plan on doing Mr. X on invitation with 2 seats reserved on RSVP in invitation.
Am I doing this correctly? whats the best way to do this?

@skipanther: I only addressed the STDs to the Mr. X and save the “and guest” for the invites.
Are you doing two envelopes for your invites? If so then you would put Mr. X on the outside one and Mr. X and Guest on the inner envelope. If you are only doing one envelope for the invites I would just write Mr. X on the envelope and make it clear on the RSVP card that he is invited with a guest.

You are doing it correct. I just answered a
Question like this yesterday, so I’m going to cut and paste my answer and rationale below:
But for a non-married couple, you only adress it to the person in the couple you are inviting. SOs or guests’ names do not go on the STD.
For example-if you’re friends with Kim Kardashian and you’re inviting her and Kanye-you’d only address the STD to Kim-you’re telling her to save the date for your wedding…you put Kanye’s name only the inner envelope of the invite. The rational behind this is that if Kim and Kanye broke up before you send the invite…you aren’t obligated to invite Kanye too. 🙂

@BrooklynWife: Hmm good point. I only have a few couples in this position but they have been dating for years and years and years (and living together) so I guess I feel ok with leaving them as is. Although if I did have a newer couple than Ya that makes total sense.
@MrsBeck: I dont have two envelopes, as is im pushing the ounce mailing requirement. I think Ill just put clearly they have a guest in the RSVP section. Most of them are college bound cousins that are not currently dating anyone.
