I made a template in power point and printed each one out separately on my home printer. I addressed the save the date specifically to each person invited. 

For example

John and Mary Smith (married couple)

or  John Smith and Mary White (unmarried couple, I put the main guest not plus one first)

or The Smith Family (for when I invited the whole family)

i hand addressed my stds. instead of writing “and guest,” you should find out the name of the SO and write that.

In most cases, I’m using the name of the SO, but we’re also giving plus ones to people who aren’t dating anyone right now. For them, I’m just writing their name and telling them they can bring a date :).

Save the dates are more casual than your formal invite, so it is okay to use labels; we are handwriting ours though.

We hand addressed our Save-The-Date Cards – we did not include “and guest” on our Save-The-Date Cards….if someone was invited with a +1 guest we waited until we sent out invitations to include their name….for those who were bringing a +1 that was a significant other we also wrote their name on the STD.

We used labels.  I addressed them specifically to the people who were invited.  If someone was seriously dating someone we knew, we put both names on the envelope.  If they were single or dating someone we didn’t know, we just sent it to the person we knew.  We’ll let those people bring plus ones (almost everyone is coming from out of town), but we can deal with that later / tell them what’s going on if they ask.  There are only two families with children that we are inviting – those we addressed to The Name Family.
