Hey ladies, so I finally got my invitations in the mail but I’m stressing out about how I address them. Do I write Justin & guest on the rsvp? The rsvp envelope? The main envelope? Do people just naturally know to put down a plus one if it’s addressed to one person? Will they know I’m only addressing the two that I’ve indicated on it? So confused ! Any advice or input to what you have done would be greatly appreciated, I need to get these out ASAP!
If your guests want to invite a plus one most likely they will. No need to stress over it by making sure that u are addressing your guests to do that. Your rsvp will indicate how many number of people attending so you will be fine.
If we were allowing a guest but didn't know the name, we would put "and guest". If we knew the name, we would write names. We did this on the main envelope and on the RSVP card. On the RSVP card we put "We have reserved ___ seats in your honor" so they knew how many people were invited.
Id write "name plus guest" on envelope. If it doesn't say that, people might not necessarily assume from RSVP (I wouldn't myself, because usually people just use general RSVP cards for ALL guests; I would just think it was there for the guests who DID get plus ones).
I wrote the names plus guest on the main envelope and on the back of the card as well. So if your guest was Justin, I wrote "Justin and Guest" to ensure they knew they had a plus one, otherwise we just wrote the name of the guest.
Hmmmmm, yes i see. There is definitely room for confusion. You might just have to take a chance and start to see how people respond before you figure out if you have to follow up with people regarding guests. Hopefully people will figure out to indicate guest or no guest, but you never know.
This is my rsvp. My concern is that if I write on the line which sounds like what you’re talking about, if they end up not wanting a guest then would they just cross that out? Or just write on their envelope to send back to me? The number of guests would have been an awesome idea, unfortunately it didn’t even cross my mind until I started searching up this topic! Lol
If you are giving them option to bring a guest i would suggest writing Justin and Guest on the RSVP. Does the RSVP have a spot to indicate how many people will be attending? If you are really worried, then just do both, put it on the main envelope and the RSVP card.
Be sure to address the others by name, so To Justin and Jennifer... so there is no confusion about who you are inviting. If they aren't allowed to bring a guest, then address is just, To Justin.
