I'm printing up my envelopes and I'm wondering how you guys addressed the guest of your invitee. I only know their guest's first name. Should I put:

 

1) Joe Shmoe & Jenny

 

or

 

2) Joe Shmoe & Guest

 

or

 

3) go crazy trying to find out this person's last name

I put Joe Shmoe & guest. That way they know they can bring a guest, but it doesn't have to be the guest you listed.

Why dont you call the person and ask for the last name. Or if it is a new boyfreind/girlfreind I think it is ok to put guest. But if they have been together I would try to find out the last name.

Oh ths shame... smile72.gif Etiquette-wise, you're really supposed to write their full names on the invitation if they live together or are married. But, we're not that etiquette obsessed, are we? blush2.gif

 

I just, in a mad rush, decided to put +guest on a couple of my invites. Woopte doo!

we addressed the envelopes of our single friends in their name only, even if they were dating someone (unless it was long-term), but told them that they were more than welcome to bring a date.

How long have they been together? If it's really serious, maybe you should just call your friend to get the name.
If it's just been a few months, don't worry about it :)

Ouch! That's rude! fryingpan.gif
I don't know why people don't understand that we have closer relationships with some people, even if they are sisters and brothers of others... grrrr...

You can only do what you can do. Your intentions are good. Don't get too upset about it all. Just write "and guest" and stick 'em in the mail. :)

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
