So I’m going to be getting my save the date’s soon (magnetstreet.com takes a long time – 10 days for production plus shipping btw)…anyhow… How would you suggest I address the STD’s? Would you address them identically to your invitations? I mean I guess the idea would be so that people know exactly who and how many are coming?
I’m wondering if I should address the STD’s to “Mr John Smith”? where the invites would read Mr John Smith and Guest?
Seems kind of silly to ask but I wasn’t sure…

For ours, we did “John Smith” if he didn’t have a wife/girlfriend at the time of sending it, but if he had a girlfriend we addressed it to “John Smith and Jane Jones”, or “Jim and Lisa Brown” if it was a couple that was married.
We didn’t put “and guest”, just in case when we sent out the real invitations we were unable to invite guests for everyone single. We didn’t want to paint ourselves into a corner! Better to invite fewer people on the save the dates, and then when the invitations go out to allow them to bring a guest. Chances are, if they don’t have a significant other at the time of sending out the Save the Dates, they’re not going to be scrambling to find someone to go with them to this wedding. Letting them know they can bring a guest at the time of the invitation is plenty of time to find a date (in my opinion!)
