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

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 :)

I knew she was upset that I asked her sister to be in my wedding (who backed out bc she didn't want her sister to be upset) but you don't delete someone off myspace unless it's serious lmao now i'm mad lol lol

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. :)
