Inviting Partners and Guests.
If an invited guest is married, engaged or living with a significant other, that partner must be included in the invitation.
A single invitation addressed to both individuals should be sent to spouses or couples who live together, while separate invitations should be sent to each member of an engaged or long term couple who don’t live together.
Inviting single guests with a date is a thoughtful gesture, but one that is not required. If you are inviting a single guest with a date, try to find out the name of your friend’s intended date and include that person’s name on the invitation. Otherwise, inner envelopes may include “And Guest,” indicating that he or she may bring any chosen escort or friend.
To invite or not invite children - this is a situation that can quickly get ugly. Make your decision and stick with it - then inform your guests through carefully addressed invitations.
Children over 18 who are invited to the wedding should receive their own invitations - regardless of whether or not they live with their parents. If you don’t send them an invitation - it’s clear that they’re not invited.
Children under 18 who are invited to the wedding should have their name included on the invitation. If you’re inviting Tom and Jane Jones without their two little ones, their invitation should read “Tom and Jane Jones.”
If you’re still worried that some guests may add write-ins on their reply card - print the names of those invited on the reply card as well.
It is never appropriate for a guest to ask to bring a date, and you have every right to politely say no. However, if you discover that a guest is engaged or living with a significant other, you should extend a written or verbal invitation.
