Etiquette says that the “and guest” goes on the inner envelope. So, “Gemstone and Guest.” That’s what I did. However, when it was someone’s long-term SO or something, I’d put both names on both the outer and inner envelopes.

I see a lot of people put the “and Guest” on the outer envelope, too — so it’s really your preference.

P.S. You’re not an idiot! This wedding stuff all seems easy until you’re actually doing it yourself!

There is not supposed to be “and guest” on any invitation, ever. Your job is to ask the person the name of their guest and write it fully (title, first, last) just as you would the person whose name you already know. It is polite to be invited as a named person, and it is likely you will need to know the guest’s name prior to the response so you can order/create seating arrangements

Examples:

Your sister and her boyfriend:

Miss Sally Sisterhood
Mr. Joe Boyfriendland

Your maiden aunt and her Rotweiler: 

Ms. Petunia Prettyface
Mr. Roofus Prettyface

Your divorced cousin and her fiance (find out what name she uses):

Ms. Darlene Datesagain
Mr. Ronald Remarry
