I thought you always addressed someone as “+ guest” if they were not married or engaged to the person they’re bringing.

Unless my friend had never met my Fiance, it would really bug me too. :-/

Theoretically, “+ guest” is never appropriate.  The host is supposed to determine the name of the guest that the person wants to invite, and address the invitation to both of them.  That being said, some people will use “+ guest” to mean that if your SO can’t attend, you’d be welcome to bring someone else.  And at worst, I suspect that this was laziness rather than ill intent.
