Why don’t you only use people’s names on the invitations, instead of +1 or "and guest" so they can’t fill in random names?

If you use inner envelopes you can list all the people that are invited. 

The Outer envelope would say:

Miss Jane Smith

### Smith Street

Anytown, NY USA

 

The inner envelope would list: 

Miss Jane Smith

Mr. Tom Jones

Krgk84, I dont’ think it’s tacky.  Just remember each name has its own line:

Miss Jane Smith

Mr. Tom Jones

### Any STreet

Anytown, NY #####

I also have the target invitations…what I am doing is getting matching ribbon and wrapping it around the invitation. I’ll seal it with the clear address labels with just the names of the invited on them.  It’ll act as my "inner envelope since I don’t have one and it’ll be clear who is invited.

krgk, it’s perfectly okay to ask your friends the names of their SOs before addressing envelopes.  I’m fairly certain that every for every wedding I’ve attended in the last two years the couple emailed either me or my Fiance to ask the for the spelling and full name of the other of us.  I don’t know what stage you are at, but we have an Address Form that we referred people to on our save teh dates.  We include a field for your SO/Spouses name.  This isn’t necessary, but if you really only want to include SOs that you know, I htink directly asking for their names and writing them on the invite is the way to go.
