It happens that we have a small number of people we’d like to invite to our wedding who are divorced with a child. We are inviting our unattached friends to bring a guest. And we are a child-friendly wedding.
When a friend is unattached with a child, should we invite them to bring a guest and a child? I’m guessing so, since if they were married and we didn’t know the spouse or the child, we would certainly invite both…

i think that’s a very good way to handle it, since you are treating everyone the same!

I was going to say either or, especially since you’re talking about people who are “unattached” not just those who are single as a technicality. (If I was a single mom, I don’t think I’d want to bring my kid on a date to a wedding.)

Most of the single guests we invited I added and guest to their invite. Most won’t bring a date but some will. I’m glad you’re including children, our friends also brought their children (mostly 3-6 year olds) and they were so cute dancing!

I can’t say I’m certain at this point how to approach this…
Maybe I should address the invitation to “Single Person and Guest”? That way, they could choose whether to bring a date or a child?

Yes, we have this situation. We addressed the envelope like this…
“Ms. Jennifer Smith and Guest, Madison & Taylor”
