@SimplyChic11: I’m confused. So you want to put +guest on the envelope, but only half the people are invited with a guest? If so, then yes…I would be confused.

I’m a little confused too.  You should address the invite to who is invited – whether it’s your friend and their date’s name or your friend “and guest.”  I’m not sure what you’re asking?

We were typing at the same time.  So you don’t necessarily care who does/doesn’t bring a date?  If you don’t, I would extend a +1 (guest) to everyone.

@SimplyChic11: Sorry, I’m still confused. I’m assuming you are already inviting married and enggaged couples, right? So you have 60 single guests and you dont know if you should invite them with a +1? I mean, thats a lot of people!! You should really make out a full guest list, including +1’s, so you know what your headcount will be. I wouldn’t just send an invite and let you guests assume anything. That is a recipe for disaster.

Also, if a guest wont know anyone else at the wedding then I think they should be invited with a +1, if your budget allows for this of course.

I dont get it either. If the invite is for just one person than just have that persons name on envelope, if you put +guest people will assume they can bring an extra person

@SimplyChic11: Ok, so you want to address the envelope like this:

 So and So and Guest

25 Main Street

USA

Is that your question? if so, then yes, I think that is fine.

If you know the guest’s name, write it on the envelope “Mr. John Smith and Ms. Emily Landon.”  If you don’t know the name of a guest, but you’re still allowing that person to bring a guest, then I would put, “Mr. John Smith and Guest.”
