I am working on save the dates and wondering…if you are invitiing someone and a guest (but are not sure who that guest might be if they are single), do you include guest on the save the date?
Like Mr. John Doe and Guest or just the actual person invited? I am curious as I have seen weddings that do not include a plus one in certain situations, and I want to make sure that people know a guest is also invited so they can make plans early enough to bring a guest, if they wish.
Am I over thinking this?

Hmm… I’m not sure of the actual etiquette for that. Usually when you send out formal invitations, you would send to the person you’re inviting, and then if you’re allowing htem a guest, you’d put “and guest” so they know they have a +1. But I think it would be wierd to put “and guest” on your outer envelope for your Save the Dates. I think you probably just send it to the person you’re inviting and then if they really want to find someone and aren’t sure, they’ll ask you.

Are you inviting a lot of Out of Town guests? I think when you send out invites the 2 months should be plenty enough time for someone to decide on a 1+
We just addressed them to the actual person.

I didn’t include guests on the STD cards. That will be done on Invites

No, only address save the dates to the person invited. When you send invites address the outter envelope to who is invited and then on the RSVP card say how many seats are reserved (or if you have an inner envelope you can say Mr. John Smith & Guest.”
