Have your RSVP’s printed with, “_2_ seats have been reserved in your honor”..

Have you completed your RSVP cards yet? If not I would include a line on them with “2 seats reserved in your honor” or however many guests invited.

ETA: Haha, you beat me to it! 🙂

I did mine on the outer envelope.


Miss Jane Smith and Guest



Then on the RSVP had a spot for their names…

Then you’ll probably have to buy inner envelopes or just put it on the outer envelope.. 🙁

We did the “We have reserved ___ seats in your honor” but if someone was invited with an “and guest” I also just wrote it on the outside of the envelope. There were only a few people that we did that with.

You could always put the guests names on directly on the card…


You can put the 2 seats have been reserved in your honor OR

_____ of 2 will be attending

Here’s my RSVP Postcards…

I just put “Ms. Mary Jane & Guest” on the outer envelope. It’s not proper-etiquette, but non of my guests will care

I’m doing the same as lola2011 is suggesting, I’ll be addressing the outer envelope to say “Jane Smith and Guest”.

You could make a belly band out of ribbon or cardstock to wrap around the enclosures and write that information there. (This is what I think I’m doing)

Of course you could put it on the outer envelope, most people wouldn’t know that’s not great etiquette, but it’s not exactly rude. I wouldn’t be offended. 

Call the guest to let them know they are allowed a plus one.

Include the information on your website.

Make a special enclosure with this information.


Hope you find the solution that works for you!
