I know that isn’t proper etiquette but have you thought about adding to your response card.  I indicated the person + Guest.  My guest could then respond, if they were going to bring a +1.   Worked great for me because I am on a limited budget.  

I have been to several weddings where the bride told me in advance if I was allowed to bring a guest or not.  I decided to do the same and its worked out wonderfully. 

Good Luck!!!!

*I* think that is fine. In fact, I just got an invite in the mail yesterday (from someone whose Future Mother-In-Law is picky enough that she required them to handwrite the addresses, so she’s not sloppy with her etiquette!) and it only had one envelope and said “my name and guest.”

@faith1583a:Do it. 🙂 Proper, without an inner envelope—what guest is going to care about that? They’d be happier just knowing if they can bring a guest or not.

Do it the way you said, Mr XYZ + guest

Are you having response cards?  If so, I put the name of the guest (s) on the outer envelope, even if it was just one name.  On the reply card, I wrote, “We have saved___ seats in your honor”, and filled in the blank for each.  Then, their choices were:

 

Yes, ___ of us will be coming!

No, we cannot make it. 

 

Does that help?:)

I just sent my invites out and put “and guest” on the outer envelope, mostly b/c I wanted to be super clear that the invitee could bring a date, ettiquette be damned in my case 🙂

Yep, I invited Mr. _________ and Guest.   It may not be proper etiquette but I think most people just don’t care anymore.  I also didn’t have inner envelopes so it went right on the outer envelope…. and guess what?  It worked perfectly.  🙂

I did the exact same thing. I wanted to be really clear.
