You pretty much have two choices if you want it to be clear to people:

1) Buy an additional envelope that everything fits inside, and do the mailing addresses on there, and the “Jane Smith and Guest” thing on the ones includeded on your invites, or vice versa.

2) just write that on the one envelope, and don’t worry about the cluttered look.

you could also put “we have reserved X number of seats”on the RSVP and on the ones that can bring a guest, write 2.

Maybe it’s just me, but with things like this I don’t care what “ettiquette” says. I just do them however I want, and my guest will have to deal.

I had this problem with square envelopes too, so I just wrote “bla bla and guest” and “bla bla and family” on the outter envelope. Who cares. It will get tossed anyway. 🙂

We didn’t have an inner envelope because we paid top dollar for our custom invites (soooo worth it!!) so on the outside envelope we addressed them….

Mr. & Mrs. Smith


If they had kids…

Mr. & Mrs Smith



For a plus one….

Mr. Smith & Guest


The RSVP card just said M__________________ and they fill in their name.  This will provide you with the guest’s name too.  🙂

Hope this helps you!!!

Totally agree with Bride9911 as that is what we are doing as well.  We are also not having inner envelopes and I could care less about what etiquette says I am “supposed” to do!  (sorry Mom….!)
