Every adult for my wedding will receive + 1 invitation. Of course couples are invited as couples, however there’s a bunch on single people and I still want them to have the ability to bring a + 1.
How do you I word it on the invitation? I’m not a natice English speaker (the wedding is in the US though and my fiance is). In my native tongue there is a special formal word for a companion (for the lack of the better word in English). I know that sometimes people say eg. Anne Smith & Guest. Is this the way to go?
What wording to choose on save the dates? What wording to choose for invitations later?
Thanks in advance!!!

I’ve always seen it as “(Name) and Guest,” so that’s probably your best bet
As for save the dates, I don’t think it’s really necessary to indicate whether or not they’re getting a +1.

Arent the save the dates adressed to specific people though? So I’f I’m mailing it to SO’s cousing, shouldn’t I mailt to to her and guest? Ehhh, so confusing
(I also come from a country with no save the dates and really different etiquette)

If you don’t really know the guest (your cousins boyfriend you’ve only seen once for example), just mail it to the cousin. She’s then responsible for getting her guest RSVPed and informed even if they don’t live together, in my opinion.

tyene: When I did Save-The-Date Cards and was giving people +1’s, I just addressed it to the person invited. When I sent the invites, that’s when I wrote “and guest”. So STD just to Mr. Joe Smith and invite to Mr. Joe Smith and Guest.

weatherbug: +1 that’s how I did it too.
