I’m sending out my Save the Date magnets next week. I’ve already gone through the guest list and made sure only our A-list VIPs will be receiving them.
But then that brings up a question – do you address them with “and guest” if they will be getting a plus one? Or does it matter?
I’m worried because we haven’t decided which plus ones are assigned to which guests. Some couples might break up, space is limited…
Did you use “and guest”? Or is it just addressed to the individual?

Ok, I don’t have an answer for this, but I really want to know why you are only sending Save-The-Date Cards to some guests.

I’m also confused by "which plus ones are assigned to which guests" What do you mean?

I would just address them without the "and guest." Unless the guest is some one who would definitely be invited, of course.

I agree with adressing them just to the individual, for the same reason not everyone gets a save the date….
The time that you really have to decide who is and isn’t invited is at invite drop time.
Until then, the "bottom" of the A list is a bit flexible. At 6 months out (StD time), we weren’t entirely sure if some B-listers would be making their way up to the A list or A-listers moving down. So only our super core family and must-have friends got StDs. Basically, the A+ list.
It’s awesome if your list is in the can at 6 months out, but our list isn’t clearly divided into As and Bs, so there’s a lot of grey area for people to move around in. It’s much better to send fewer StDs than to have B-listers wondering why they never received an invite.

I don’t think you need to send them a "plus one". They are only "saving the date" for your wedding at this point, not thinking about what date they would bring. If they’re in a serious relationship, they’ll probably assume they’re bringing their significant other. If they’re not in a serious relationship, they may not even know who they’ll be dating at the time of your wedding. At this point, they’re just reserving the date for your wedding.
