I think no "and guests" for anyone under eighteen or who has not graduated high school.

What I did (not sure if its the "right way") was I let all my Out of Town guests that are 18 yrs or older bring a guest.  Other then that I allowed all guest to bring their husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend.  In town guests that are not married or in a relationship, I didn’t allow to bring a guest…  The Out of Town guests I felt like I had to allow then to bring a guest since they would want a travel companion.

I say no guest for the girl in high school. Guests ok for college aged guests.

 High schoolers don’t need a guest. THat’s just extra cost to you, and honestly, completely unnecessary in my opinion. What 16 year old has a serious SO anyways? My FI’s cousin wasn’t allowed to bring her Boyfriend or Best Friend (at the time) to her cousins’ wedding (she was 16) and whined about it. But I was allowed to attend as a "date" but my Fiance was in college at the time. I think it was generally accepted that it was ok because he was an ADULT. 

Man i wasn’t even thinking about boys at 16, lol!

I agree, no1 under 18 or still in high school should be invited and guest. And honestly even through college, if they arent in a serious relationship and are coming with their family, I wouldnt invtie them and guest. There is really no need to, its a family event for them.

If they still live at home and are being included in the parents’ invitation there is no reason to include "and guest". If they live on their own and are receiving their own invitation it’s only fair to allow them to bring a guest (unless you are not allowing any +1s).
