    @Mill:  If we’re getting technical, you shouldn’t be addressing anything as “and guest” unless the invitee in question is single and you’d like them to bring anyone. But for a save-the-date, just the invitee is fine. But if you are going to invite a boyfriend and girlfriend, I would put both their names on it. For families, I said “The Brown Family” on the STD and got more specific on the invites.

    No – we didn’t mention how many seats each family got when we sent STD

    it was one per household.

    i wouldn’t do “and guest” on the STD.

    if you know the SO’s name even if they live at a different address, address it to the invited and the SO’s name and the invited’s address.  if you don’t know but want them to bring someone, you can take care of that in the invitation.

    No  “and guest”. Wait until you are ready to send out the invites to find out precisely who will attend. You have at least 4 to 6 months to learn your friend’s guest’s name right?

    We did not. For the invitations, make sure you use the SOs name and only ‘and guest’ for truly single guests.
