I included +1s on my save the dates.  I figured it would be easier for my guests to make travel plans if they knew they could bring a date. A lot of my guests were out of town too.  I addressed it to Ms. Jane Friend and Guest.

When it comes to Save the Dates… technically they don’t fit within the “traditional” stationery elements associated with a Wedding… so in many ways there are RIGHTS or WRONGS in regards to handle them (Other than everyone who receives a STD, they ABSOLUTELY should also be getting a Formal Invite when the time comes* … And those Invites need to be written out with the full-name of the invitees in the least = Informal… or seperate Invites for both parties = Formal)

IF you are planning a Destination Wedding, and have researched the cost elements so that you KNOW that you can accommodate all the folks you hope for and their Plus Ones… (see that important * above)

Then by all means address the Save-The-Date Cards to reflect who can bring a Guest as per the example that CityBearBride:  posted above in Reply # 2 above

Hope this helps,

I put “and guest” or the names of all those invited on my Save the Dates so they could plan accordingly. I don’t see any down side to putting it on there – unless you are unsure about if you’re going to allow them to have a guest.

I would def include “and guest”, it will help people to plan.
