What should I do if I have guests bringing a +1 but they only gave their +1’s first name? I know I can call to ask, but I’m just wondering if it’d look weird if the majority of escort cards have first and last names while some only have a first name..
Here’s an example: one wedding guest is bringing her boyfriend, Chris (no last name), as her +1, we also have another guest coming named Chris B*****ll. Can I have one escort card with the first and last name of “Chris B*****ll” and another with JUST “Chris”? That’d probably be too confusing, huh?
I think I’ve just answered my own question. I’ll suck it up and call to find out the last names of +1’s. Any bees have a similar problem when sifting through their RSVPs? Did you wind up calling?

If you can’t find out, perhaps you can have
Chris B**** II
and another card with
Guest of Mary *****

It is most proper to treat all guests the same regardless of them being +1’s or close personal frends of yours. So it would be proper to have all cards with last names.

I just called/texted/emailed to find out last names if I needed to. It’s not a big deal. I definitely wouldn’t make some people’s escort cards different as an alternative to just doing a little sleuthing… Also, facebook stalking can sometimes be helpful in finding out the last names of SOs of your guests.

I called them and asked. BUT DH’s cousin who has a not serious gf who was not invited by us, but by said cousin…. we gave her his cousin’s last name because we got a kick out of it. We knew it would make his cousin uncomfortable and well we were annoyed he invited his gf without consulting us. Darling Husband would giggle every time he saw her name on the guest list or what not.

Just call/text/facebook to get last names. It’ll look a lot more organized when the escort cards are displayed.

Sometimes I didn’t even get a first name. I figured if they wanted their name printed on my stuff they would’ve given me the full name of their guest. So I just put Daniel W*** +1 or Cory C** +1, etc. on the escort cards. I really don’t think anyone thought it was rude. I mean, they didn’t know me after all.
