Ideally, it shouldn’t say “and guest.”  You could enclose a small note inside that says “Dear Jane, please bring a guest with you” (according to Emily Post), or if you choose, leave the guest part on the envelope.

I wrote who was invited on the invitation.

I’ll just be doing “John Smith” on the outside and then on the RSVP card saying 2 seats have been reserved.

I tried to find out the name of the guests and I wrote their names.

I tried to find out the name and if I didn’t know I said to hell with it and wrote and guest on the envelope! I didn’t want to pay more money for an inner envelope and I didn’t want to write the number of guests on each invite so laziness and cheapness won out.

@linz09:  Amen to that, sister! 🙂

If I knew that a friend/family member was single and wanted to invite them with a guest…I just wrote “and Guest”. If there was a chance that they had someone in their life…I just asked and if they said no, again…they got an “and Guest”!
