I’m addressing my envelopes, and I have an etiquette question about unmarried/not living together/not engaged couples.
Several of my friends (including bridesmaids) have seriously long-distance boyfriends who WILL be invited to my wedding. But since the invitation will be going to my girlfriend’s home, is it appropriate to put the name of her guest if they don’t live in that household?
Miss Julia Gulia and Mr. Bob Schmob

Am I overthinking this?

i would put their boyfriends full name. It makes it look more personal than if you did ‘and guest’. that is what we are doing for our save the dates.

I think the best I’ve seen is what you put…. Julia Gulia and Bob Shmob. If you don’t know Bob’s name, just put Julia Gulia and if she really wants to bring a date, hopefully she’ll ask! 🙂

Definitely put his name! Oh my gosh this happened to me once and I was so mad (background: we were engaged, and both in the wedding).

I’d go with always put the name if you know it! and if they are close friends and you don’t know the guests name I’d ask first.

Definitely put his full name – if they’ve been dating that long, he should be more than an “and guest”.

Great, thank you everyone!! I’m definitely more comfy putting boyfriend’s names, but didn’t know what the etiquette is – Thanks for your help!!
