    • Wedding: June 2009

    We did exactly what you were asking about: save the dates to people, and added dates where appropriate on the invites.  I’d expect some people will ask you whether their significant other is invited, so have an answer ready anyway.

    We are doing the same thing, only giving "& guests" to the wedding party and those in serious relationships.  I actually put the name of their significant other on the save the date, with the hopes that if they broke up between then and the wedding, they wouldn’t bring another random guest just because they got the +1.

    I didn’t add "and guest" to our Save-The-Date Cards even though we ended up allowing an and guest for every guest. I think it’s safe to just send the STD to your specific friend without any mention of an added guest (unless of course it is someone you know, like their wife or girlfriend or SO that you know you’ll be inviting)

    The official ettiquette on the Save-The-Date Cards is that you just send it to the person and don’t include the guest…because really, you are just saving-the-date.  Of course, as Erin pointed out, you might want to have an answer ready for when peopl inevitably ask about it.
