STD address labeling...

I am getting ready to send out STDs. I'm not sure how many people we will allow to bring 'and guests' as some of our friends are in newer, yet serious relationships.

We were thinking of including just thier name onthe STDs and then when it comes time to send out invites in a couple months we would do a more formal version of the addresses... including 'name and guest'.

How are/ did you guys handle this?

I think a lot of people that send them don't realize that you aren't supposed to send them to EVERYBODY. People that have to make travel arrangements or other extenuating things get them.

I think it's sad that people allow themselves to be parted with their money so easily. The wedding industry loves preying on the ignorance of people.

I'm a Huge Fan of STDs.....

Anyway... We're doing it the same way you're thinking. My save the dates are pretty casual and fun. Its just for them to know the date. If they're not getting an invite and will be invited through the person I know.. I figure the person I know should get the STD

We did it that way...didn't even worry about the std's having the guests name unless they were either engaged or married. We just sent it to the people that were our friends or the people that we knew. Now that we're getting to send out the invites it's another story, but it's perfectly acceptable (and more practical) to not put "and guest" on the std's. Who knows...budget changes may not allow you to give everyone a guest.

On ours, only the people that are in very serious relationships had both names listed. People that are single or where the relationship is newly developing, we only put the name the person we're close to. We'll do the 'and guest' (if we chose to let people bring someone) on the formal invites.

i've never heard of not including "and guest" for anyone over 16, assuming it's a wedding over 25 people.

is this a new trend?

i'm not dissing this, i'm a huge believer in "do your own thing and let 'the rules' go to heck".

i was thinking of not including "and guest", but figured it ran the risk of everyone just bringing a date anyway.

My FH and I are paying for our own wedding and can't afford to have a lot of people we do not know at the wedding. We would never not invite someone's SO, but to let a person bring a random other person isn't something in our budget.

People who know our 'and guest' policy have been understaning, and if others aren't, they can pay for their guest's food. :-p

i've been invited to several weddings since i've turned 16 and was only given and "and guest" for my brothers'

Unless someone is in a serious relationship, regaurdless of their age, we won't be giving them a +1. this includes a family friend who is in her 50's

I'm not including and guest until the invites. It just seems silly.

We did the same. If we knew their significant other was getting invited or whatever, we put a handful of "and guests" on the stds... but otherwise we waited until the invites...

good luck!
