Is there someone you can ask about her name?  I think it would be best to include both on the STD and you don’t usually put ‘and Guest’ on a STD.

You could put Mr. & Mrs. John Doe, they may find it cute since they arent yet married but are engaged.  When I got engaged some of my friends started addressing card to us like that.

I would just ask your fiance’s mom or someone else who might know. Or, you could always play the “could you tell me how to spell her name” game and hope her name isn’t Jane Smith.

Ughh i just had this problem last night. Fiance has a huge complicated family and knows NOTHING about them. He didn’t know any kids names, he didn’t know if older children moved away or lived with their parents, and he didn’t know some people’s last names.

He just kept saying to put “and family” and I said that’s fine, but when it comes time to address the invites, we need to be very specific. He got frustrated with me.

You should try asking someone else in FI’s family for advice! I’m making a list of things I need as far as guest list questions for Future Mother-In-Law.

If it were me, I’d check with someone in the family to try to figure out what her name is.
